Each week during the run up to Christmas, Girlie Gossip are taking a look at our favourite festive treats from high street stores and major supermarkets to help give you an idea of what's out there!
Today we're looking at some delicious festive party food from TESCO. Take a look at some of our top picks below!
Whether you’re five or 95, Christmas is the season of magic and excitement. Quality time with friends and family, crackling fires, mulled wine – even sprouts taste better with a little sprinkling of seasonal shine! Don’t let the stress of organising parties and family gatherings break the spell – Tesco’s new range of chilled party food makes Christmas entertaining effortless. And to make life as easy as possible, all products across the range cook at 190C – handy when you’re juggling several dishes at once for a party.
For a special celebration, Finest* Party Food is packed full of fresh and exciting recipe ideas with hand-finished dishes that are made for entertaining. Choose from Finest* Red Thai Chicken Curry Cakes, these crisp Sticky Rice crackers are topped with pieces of tender chicken breast, marinated and cooked with lemongrass, kaffir lime and coconut for a burst of fragrant Thai flavour.
As a retro nod to the 1970s, try Finest* Prawn Shots. Tesco have brought these classics up to date by filling a shot glass with a mixture of creamy, soft cheese and crème fraiche. They’ve added a vibrant sweet chilli salsa, crunchy peppers, refreshing cucumber and a succulent king prawn and created a fresh, modern take on the nation’s favourite canapé.
For an innovative showstopper, Finest* Potato Wrapped Prawns are flavoured with aromatic ginger, garlic, chilli, fresh coriander and zesty lime, wrapped in a crisp potato shell and served with a sweet chilli dipping sauce. Just the thing for guests to nibble with a glass of bubbles.
For extra wow-factor, serve Finest* Chicken Sesame Pyramids. Pieces of chicken breast are lightly marinated in coconut curry, wrapped in hand-crafted filo pyramids and dipped in sesame seeds for crunch. Served with a mild satay sauce, these delicious, little parcels are perfect for dipping.
And if you can bear to share, try Finest* Camembert Sharing Bread. This fabulous bread is made from fermented dough for maximum flavour and crispness. Its soft fluffy texture and crunchy crust encase a whole French camembert which melts as it bakes. Tear off a piece of crunchy crust to dip into the oozing creamy cheese.
Mix up your menu with some lighter, fresher bites such as Finest* 6 Asian Pork Lettuce Wraps and Finest* Chicken Caesar Lettuce Wraps. Full of zingy flavour and crisp texture, these make the perfect foil to festive indulgence.
Tesco are confident that there’s something for every occasion – whether it’s a Saturday night in front of Strictly Come Dancing, a family get together or simply as an accompaniment to a midweek supper. Try Tesco Spanish Potato Selection – crisp potato croquettes and spiced, crunchy fried potatoes served with a zingy tomato sauce. Heat and serve as nibbles alongside a glass of chilled white wine or add to grilled chicken and salad for a simple and delicious family dinner.
Tesco haven’t stopped at Europe in their quest for flavour. They’ve travelled further south to create the Mexican inspired Mini Tortilla Wraps – soft flour tortillas filled with a spicy authentic mixture. Serve with a cold beer and a feel-good film for a great Saturday night in.
Perfect to grab and go, Tesco Party Boxes span three continents. Choose from the vegetarian Indian box, the Oriental or the American selection. Pick up a couple of these cleverly created selections to take with you to friends – they’ll thank you for it!
