What is in the Tesco Festive Food to Order range?

The Tesco Festive Food to Order range offers a variety of options, from main dishes to desserts.

Christmas centrepieces include some new dishes this year, like a French trimmed pork loin filled with garlic and black-truffle infused butte, alongside returning favourites, such as Scottish salmon topped with a tangy lemon cream cheese mousse, and jumbo king prawns.

Vegan customers also have some new plant-based mains to enjoy for 2020, including an easy-carve ‘no turkey’ roast crown made with savoury soy and wheat protein, and a meat-free festive roast with a sweet merlot red wine glaze.

Those with a sweet tooth will be spoiled for choice, with everything from a triple caramel and orange torte to a passionfruit sleigh, which comprises a decadent baked orange cheesecake on a vanilla sponge base, topped with a passionfruit glaze and a decorative mousse.
