Chef’s cheap food swaps to ‘elevate’ your Christmas dinner – ‘all about the trimmings!’


Most pre-packaged vegetable dishes come at around £2.30 from a supermarket, often serving just one to two people. Already, this will cost you almost £5 to feed four people – all the while you can pick up better alternatives from your local grocer.

According to Mickael, five loose potatoes cost around £1 (21p each), four carrots just 28p (7p each), and four parsnips roughly 80p (19p each) – and that’s double the quantity you’d get in prepackaged bags.

Buy cheap wine

Alcohol is another expense that can quickly drive up the cost of a Christmas dinner, with many people opting for more expensive bottles of wine as a festive treat. 

Chef Mickael said: “You don’t have to buy expensive wine, even at Christmas. If you’re drinking the wine, a really fun trick is to buy a cheaper bottle of wine and blend it to enhance the flavour.”
