For expats and lovers of British cuisine in France, your Christmas foodie dreams can be realised this year when it comes to your favourite Christmas treats. Bacon by the Box who are based in Ireland, have stocked all the best-loved and traditional British favourites and are standing by ready to send all the great classic British Christmas food items to you in France.
Christmas crackers, and classic British food for Christmas in France
We’ve never seen Christmas crackers on sale in France but there’s no need to go without as Bacon by the Box will have them available for the festive season. Our French friends and neighbours love them! They also love classic mince pies, Christmas pudding, fruit cake and shortbread – which are all in stock, and even mincemeat for keen cooks.
And for those who love a big dollop of cranberry sauce with their turkey dinner – you’re taken care of too. Plus they stock boneless turkey crowns and tasty little cocktails sausages (and the bacon to go with them if you want to make the seasonal pigs in blankets!), as well as sausage rolls – perfect with aperitifs. They also have good old Paxo stuffing, as well as all your favourite sauces. A traditional Christmas dinner – it just can’t be beaten!
Dairy and chocolates
Want some cheddar for your cheeseboard to complement the great French cheeses? Their Irish vintage and mature cheddars are real winners – perfect alongside a chunk of great French Camembert or Brie. Entente-cordiale gourmet style!
Clotted cream and double cream to go with Christmas pud? Tick. Yes real clotted cream.
As for chocolate, what would Christmas be without a box of Quality Street? Or Celebrations, or Heroes?! The perfect Christmas treat for you or your friends – French or non-French.
Haggis for new year in France
Every year it’s the same thing with my Scottish and haggis-loving friends in France – trying to find somewhere that can provide the traditional New Year’s Eve haggis. Bacon by the Box are now stocking this delicious speciality – just remember to order in good time.
