Our frozen 2024 Christmas dinner starters cook straight from frozen or just need defrosting (like the Smoked Salmon Terrine), so you won’t need to store them all in the fridge. If you’re saving space for turkey but still fancy some Christmas Day starters, explore our range of Christmas canapés (which all cook from frozen at the same oven temperature). Whatever you choose, you can be sure that our Christmas starters to buy will put some serious smiles on your guests’ faces.

Among our offering of Christmas day starters in our 2024 menu are Three Cheese Fondant Soufflés, Butternut Squash Nut Roasts, and the triumphant return of the Baked Camembert, which comes with a handmade port and red onion chutney. And for a gluten-free Christmas starter, then there’s plenty on offer, including a Great Taste Award winning Chicken Liver Paté. Once you’ve picked your starters for Christmas, we can help with the rest of the menu: have a look at our Christmas main course and Christmas desserts, and although they’re underrated, Christmas sides are a must have for the 25th!

Our delivery is available in almost every postcode in the UK. We always get crazy-busy around Christmas, so if you’ve chosen a selection of our frozen festive appetisers to buy online, get your (ice) skates on and book your Christmas dinner starter delivery sooner rather than later. Ordering some of our easy starters for Christmas dinner is a great way to free yourself from the kitchen this year!
