Let us make your wish come true this Christmas! We have everything you could possibly need for that special Christmas feast, all prepared fresh in our kitchens and delivered to your door. We’ve gathered just a few of our products that our customers come back for year after year (either as a gift or to treat themselves) along with some of our specially crafted hampers that will make someones Christmas that little bit more special.




The classic accompaniments for the meat:
Our Classic Christmas Trimmings are all prepared by us using prime quality produce, nothing but the best. Includes chipolatas, streaky bacon, stuffing and chestnuts. Now for those roasties, sure they aren’t that difficult to do at home, but it would take a sweet amount of time to make them THIS good. Roasted in Seldom Seen Goose Fat, which you can also purchase separately, our Pommes Chateau can’t be beaten. Time to address that age old Christmas debate; brussel sprouts, delicious or disgusting? Well at Forman & Field we think they’re delicious, especially our Sprouts with Pancetta, served in this restaurant-style for extra flavour.





On to the main attraction of the meal; MEAT.
Grown slowly for a more deep and resonating flavour, these Seldom Seen Norfolk Bronze Turkeys are completely free range. Dry plucked by hand for that crispy skin, and utterly plump, it’s no wonder they’re so popular. If you fancy something a bit more traditional, like the turkey, Seldom Seen prepare their Ballotine of Goose and serve them boneless and stuffed with old spot pork, smoked bacon, bramley apples and sage. Truly world class. Now we know not as many people opt for ham when it comes to Christmas dinner, but this Marmalade Glazed Alderton Ham should certainly be given a chance. The original recipe has been passed down over generations, and we don’t think that’s about to change anytime soon. Steamed free range legs from traditional pigs are then baked with a sweet marmalade glaze that is absolutely sublime. Well worth being centrepiece this Christmas.




A few favourites for you now. We always see these pop up in peoples orders at Christmas time, whether they’re part of the feast, or being sent as a Christmas gift. (We don’t blame you!)
This Panettone & Butter Pudding is a sexier bread & butter pud. It’s hard to improve on such a classic but using panettone with some warm masala & honey glaze, this comforting pudding has been revitalized. Try with some of our creme anglais poured on top. For the perfect gift, and certainly the most popular at this time of year, is our Sliced Side (900g) of famous London Cure Smoked Salmon. Presented in a stylish gift pack, it’ll look great under the christmas tree – on a plate. For those cheese fans out there, why pick one when you can have a whole board of cheese?! The Speciality British Cheeseboard includes carefully selected British cheeses include tunworth, cropwell bishop stilton, montgomery cheddar, driftwood and no. 5 goddess. Presented in a wicker cheese box.




Puds Pies Cakes, all those after dinner treats you’ll need on the day!
We’re big fans of Meg Rivers here at Forman & Field, and these M.R Iced Christmas Cakes are sublime. Packed with fruits & nuts and a generous helping of brandy, you couldn’t get a more traditional cake if you tried (we have!) Just because Nadell has retired, doesn’t mean we have to lose out on his unbeatable Mince Pies! Buttery, full of flavour, and definitely more-ish! (top tip with these little pies, order early & increase the quantity because they will sell out fast) Our Handmade Christmas Puddings are award winning and created by chef Lloyd Hardwick. Everything is carefull done by hand; the chopping, the mixing, the shaping, the packing! We cook them a third of the way for you to finish at home, so the flavour will be deep and the texture oh so gooey. We offer various sizes, and our ‘Vintage’ xmas puds have been matured for an extra year steeped in 10yr old cognac.





A hamper is a great gift at Christmas time, with everything your loved one could possibly need packed away in a stylish carrier. Whether it’s a hamper for Christmas day, or something to hold on to and indulge in later, Forman & Field can help.
The Christmas Essentials Hamper, does what it says on the… hamper. This is one of our most popular gifts year after year, with the best and all important products you could need on Christmas day. (Hamper includes our London Cure Grade One Smoked Salmon, a Marmalade Glazed Alderton Ham, a F&F Hand-mixed Christmas Pud, Brandy Butter, and many more delights) If you’re looking for a gift that will impress with contents that don’t need to be kept in the fridge, the Lasting Pleasure Hamper is the perfect fit. No need to keep this hamper cool or fuss with moving the contents into the fridge, it’ll keep for weeks! (Includes Banana Bread, Cherries in Brandy, Peter’s Yard Mini Crispbreads, Spiced Apricot Compote, and more) For cheese fans, how does a generous wedge of Cropwell Bishop Stilton and accompaniments presented in a totally chic wooden hat box sound? We thought so, that’s why we think our Stilton Lovers Hat Box makes a great gift. Unique, stylish, special.
