A Classic British Christmas Dinner Menu
A Classic Christmas Dinner is the high point of the holiday celebrations, a time to gather family or friends together and enjoy the best of British produce.
A Christmas dinner is hefty so starters, if you choose to have them, should be light and easy, simply a teaser for the food to come. Smoked Salmon, especially Scottish Smoked Salmon, is a favorite and can be served simply and easily without adding to the intense cooking required to get dinner on the table.
