Sheffield's Christmas Crackers

Whirlow roast turkey. I always grab a thigh, juicy and delicious, with as many roast vegetables as the oven can manage, some fantastic gravy and one Brussels sprout (under duress).

But the really great thing about buying from Whirlow Hall Farm Trust is that as well as enjoying fantastic meat, you’ll be supporting the work it does to help disadvantaged kids from across the city.

My favourite festive foods are those enjoyed with my nearest and dearest with a Christmas tipple in hand. We have a tradition at my house which involves crumpets and Buck's Fizz for breakfast. This sets us up nicely for finishing the dinner, which has been my duty since becoming a chef. To get into the Christmas spirit, pop into The Showroom and sample my vegetarian and vegan main dishes, available from 1 December.

As a vegetarian, my firm favourite is still a nut roast. It's hearty and works well with gravy and roast potatoes. We'll usually have sprouts too. The plate feels empty without them. A recent tradition in our house is to have my wife's delicious celeriac soup on Christmas Eve. We sit down in front of the black and white movie, The Bishop's Wife, with David Niven and Cary Grant, and stay up late wrapping presents. Get yourself prepared and order your Christmas veg box from Beanies.
