Christmas: Lunch for under £5 per head
If you are feeling the financial pinch, you don't need to scrimp on Christmas lunch.
A few years ago team Delia took up the challenge to see if we could devise a menu for those cooking on a budget. After engaging in some intricate research, shopped, calculated, tested and cooked. The results were astonishing, even we could hardly believe it! Delia has always said cooking at home saves a load of money but it is quite astonishing how this really kicks in at Christmas.
So if you are someone in need of help we have some very good news for you, because you can serve a mouth watering sumptuous three-course Christmas lunch for 6 people for (and are you really ready for this?) for under £5 head! Can you believe that’s less than the cost of two large cappuccinos? What’s more, if you want three mince pies and a slice of Christmas cake each later on, that will cost you just 70p per head.
