Christmas: Lunch for under £5.50 per head

Christmas: Lunch for under £5.50 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 (and are you really ready for this?) for under £5.50 a head! Some of the recipes are all shown below, and for more details, checklists and planning Click Here.
