Win! Extra Special Christmas goodies from Leith’s and ASDA

Last week we visited Leith’s in west London, to sample some of the delights that Leith’s have selected from the ASDA range as their top hits for Christma in the “Extra Special” range.. It’s an interesting partnership, as I think we have some ideas in our minds about which supermarkets are more ‘foodie’ than others – I certainly did. However most of us nowadays are looking for both certain standards of ingredients and value for money so this arrangement looks promising. Leith’s were frank about their unwillingness to compromise on quality and it’s going to be interesting to see what these two ostensibly different animals will come up as the relationship develops over the next eighteen months.

We prepared a three course meal using combinations of the products from the range and lots of help from the lovely Leith’s staff. Our display went a bit awry when it became clear we’d sampled some of the honey and mustard baked sausages (but we were huuuuuuungry!) Lesson learned: next time eat three of the dozen in the pack and leave a nice presentable nine.

They still tasted good. We made fast cheaty canapΓ©s using some of the ingredients in the range, such as goats’ cheese and walnut topped crostini, drizzled with yet more honey, and peppered smoked salmon flaked into cream cheese and loaded up with horseradish. Main course was beautifully cooked venison which, heretical as it would be to my family, I could see as an alternative main course for the 25th. Not in my house, but I understand some people aren’t fans of turkey?!

And just in time for the big day, ASDA and Leith’s are offering one lucky winner a huge hamper full of Extra Special Goodies. The long list includes:

Christmas pudding, All-Butter Mini mince pies, Hazelnut & Fruit Stollen, Yule Log, Roast Pork and Crackling Hand Cooked Crisps (beware, these are more addictive than crack), Forest Fruit Butter Crumbles, Applewood Smoked Cheddar and winter chutney Hand Cooked Crisps, Fairtrade Columbian Roast and Ground Coffee, Artisan Biscuits for Cheese, Florentines, Black olive Breadsticks, Continental Delicacies, Gruyere and poppy seed twists, All butter Sundried Tomato and cheese Crumbles, Cava, Cranberry Sauce, Caramelised Onion Chutney, and to top it all off, a jar of Goosefat!

  1. I’m not surprised you ate some of the sausages, they look lovely!

    This Christmas I’ll be being ‘good’ as I have a bridesmaid dress to get into a couple of days after. That said, I’ll still indulge in some Bucks Fizz, a full turkey dinner and some Christmas pudding, followed by a long walk. We tend to have a big buffet on Christmas Eve too with lots of miniature dishes.

    Being good is going to be very hard!

  2. Roast Chicken! Salmon in whole grain mustard! Mince pies! Chocolate! My sister’s homemade soup! My mate Col’s meringues! And a lot of Gaviscon!

    Do I sound a bit excited? I think I am a bit excited.

  3. Lamb! We never, ever eat turkey. There’s only four of us, and turkey is a bit rubbish. Lamb is much nicer. And then Bailey’s. Because that’s the best of all the festive drinks.

  4. Gotta be turkey. I actually like it and with a store of chutney’s, relishes and spices in the cupboard using leftovers will pose no problems.

    But after dinner we’ll be tucking in to my chocolate plum pudding truffles, just perfect sized to pop into a mouth without too much effort and maybe a glass or two of something suitably sweet.

  5. Traditional for me … drop of rum in my morning coffee then a G&T while in the kitchen. Bottle of Cava then some sloe gin and maybe a drop of port to finish things off.

    Food? Anything that goes well with the drink so some nibbles, roast turkey, Christmas pudding and some rather smelly cheese!

  6. Sadly, like Emma, I am ‘being good’ at the moment, but that won’t stop me eating beef bourguignon (sp?) on Christmas Eve, eggs with smoked salmon, full turkey roast and most of a cheese board on Christmas Day and my dad’s meat and potato pie on Boxing Day.
    ‘Tis the season, after all!

  7. Mmm the mustardy sausages look good and sticky. We’re creatures of habit at Christmas – champagne and gougeres (cheesy choux pastry puffs) for breakfast, soup for lunch (I’m making pheasant and chestnut this year) then the big turkey-and-all-the-trimmings in the evening. Plus the odd piece of Lindor and Terrys Chocolate Orange… I’m salivating already!

  8. I’m a Christmas-oholic, and it’s still got to be traditional on the day. Bacon sandwiches on crusty white bread with bucks fizz, mince pies and clementines through the day, then the biggie: hot smoked salmon and prawn terrine followed by brined turkey, cranberry and orange stuffing, sage, onion and sausagemeat stuffing, pigs in blankets, roasties, mash, roast parsnips, carrots, peas, sprouts, cranberry sauce, gravy. Then, when everyone can summon up the space and energy, caramelised orange trifle and/or Christmas pud with cream or custard. (Those still not hospitalised get mince pies with brandy butter to finish them off!). Whoop!

  9. We will have turkey and beef as some people don’t like turkey and all the traditional trimmings. My cousin’s cooking this year and has so far mentioned about 10 different desserts so I’m not sure what we’ll get!

  10. Turkey turkey turkey. People who don’t like eating turkey are probably hanging out with people who are cooking it wrong (so I’ve had a few converts tell me over the years).


  11. Prawn cocktail starter, dinner with all the trimmings (first sprouts and chipolatas of the year!) then christmas pudding or jaffa cake trifle to end. Yum.

  12. will be steak and chips christmas eve (tradition!) Then on Christmas morning it will be canapes and drinks till 2pm, followed by full turkey roast with profilaroles and hot chocolate sauce for pudding! The evening will be spent divided between chocolate and cheese!

  13. I will be eating a luxury stuffed Turkey crown (not all of it) with Cranberry jelly, pigs in blankets, Orange blossom coated parsnips and roast potatoes – oh la la – im hungry now x

  14. anything that doesnt move quick enuf , ive been on a diet and intend to eat my now lighter body weight in xmas goodies !!

  15. I take full responsibility for the missing sausage BUT in my defence I did cut it into four so we could share it! That venison was fabulous, as was the sauce that went with it, and the parnsip potato mash was also good. Actually, so was our roulade, and the honey mustard sausages and those salmon crostini. TEAM 4 FTW! πŸ™‚

  16. I am going to my daughter’s for Christmas Dinner so it will be huge as my son in law cooks that day and he always puts too much on the plate! It will be: Turkey with pigsin blankets, carrots and turnips, briussel sprouts, roast potatoes, cauliflower, swede and gravy. For pudding we will have either Christmas pudding with brandy or rum sauce or a mince pie with cream. I don’t normally drink so it will be an Irish coffee to round it off and then I will be stuffed and unable to move for several hours. It is always delicious though he is such a good cook.

  17. This year I will have a large number of the family to cook for, so I’m planning a 3 bird roast, stuffing, roast potatoes, carrots, parsnips, pigs in blankets, yorkshire puddings. Lashings of gravy because well it is Christmas after all. With Christmas pudding and brandy sauce for desert… Perhaps a glass of something fizzy to wash it all down. Now if only Santa could send me the chef to do it all for me, a woman can dream.

  18. this year is my first year as a vegetarian so Im going to make myself a nut roast and mushroom stuffing with all the trimmings,,,, still cooking turkey, gammon and all the trimmings for the family.. plenty of home made goodies cakes pies sweets etc.. coconut ice honeycombe etc all goes down a treat in the evening x

  19. I think we will have either turkey breast or turkey crown, with the usual – roasties, sprouts, carrots etc etc and then christmas pudding and cream

  20. I’ll be having curry for Christmas dinner, a chicken tikka masala. Hopefully I’ll have some room later for my favourite cheese (Wensleydale with cranberrys) and wine. I’ll be finishing each course with Rennies πŸ˜‰

  21. Far too much. Croissants and parma ham for breakast. Traditional turkey with all the trimmings for lunch. Then party food for tea. Lots of chocolates in between.

  22. Bringing a bit of Britain to Italy, I’ll be making a Christmas turkey with all the trimmings over there! I will have to take all the ingredients in my suitcase though…bacon, cranberry sauce and obviously a nice Christmas Pudding with brandy sauce to finish off the meal!

  23. A very traditional turkey and xmas pudding meal at my home ! I try to do something a bit different each year – this time its baked parmesan parsnips – but I always get the same response – ‘dont change it because we love it the way it is’.

  24. A full English breakfast followed by chocolate then a late dinner of roast turkey and all the trimmings and plum pudding and brandy sauce and then later perhaps more chocolate!

  25. definitely turkey and all the trimmings, I especially look forward to the pigs in bacon – my favourite πŸ™‚ I always buy loads of chocolates thinking that I’m going to be a piggy but I never touch them!

  26. This year I will be eating Turkey, best roast potatoes, sausage stuffing, pigs in blankets, sauteed cabbage, other trimming and Pecan Pie! Oh, and lots of Baileys, Port and Wine.

    I can’t wait!


    P.S. How did you manage to ONLY eat one? I’d have scoffed a lot more.

  27. we will be having turkey and lamb,got fussy eaters in the family! , we have gammon for boxing day and i treated myself to some baileys mmmm cant wait and of course lots of chocolate ! lol

  28. Thus year I’ll be having my first christmas dinner cooked by myself….wish me luck! I hope I don’t end up in a&e with food poisoning and come to think of that I hope that the three men in my life tha I’m cooking for don’t end up Ill either!!!

  29. Chicken (haven’t had turkey in years because I cook and therefore cook safe – usually I can burn beans), roast potatoes, cocktail sausages, sprouts (its tradition we have to eat at least four – barf), mixed vegetables, apple sauce, stuffing and a bottle of wine (2, 3 or 4 depending on how my cooking went)

  30. Scottish Smoked Salmon to start, a traditional turkey lunch with all the trimmings with Christmas Pudding and brandy sauce for dessert

  31. Mother is coming over from the USA; so I’ll be cooking a USA/UK hybrid of dishes….Gammon for Christmas Eve plus some other undecided sides, then on the big day: Turkey + stuffing, roasties, mash, sprouts w/ crisp pancetta, glazed carrots, a couple types of cranberry sauce, gravy, pigs in blankets, some other veg as well, and then haven’t yet planned the puds (but they will be numerous and appropriately winter-y). Probably a terrine or similar for starter – basically anything that can be prepared a day or 2 before. Hungry now.

  32. The plan/menu so far:
    Breakfast: scrambled eggs, mushrooms, baked beans, sausages, bacon & toast
    Snacks till Lunch: Pick at Christmas goodies, chocs etc
    Lunch: Turkey Christmas dinner with everything, piggies in blankets, yorkshire puddings, my hubby cooks it all and he makes a lovely gravy.
    Pudding: Christmas pudding or chocolate gateau or both with cream
    Dinner: Something very, very light such as Turkey rolls.

  33. A full traditional Christmas Spread but with lots of extra treats and nibbles about the family will all be there so we will make sure there is something for everyone and thats all thats important!

  34. I will be having my mums gorgeous Nut Roast with all the wonderful trimmings. But i really cannot wait for the christmas pudding and cream after! My Favourite bit! xx

  35. Nom nom nom! I will be eating roast beef with all the trimmings (I hope), and at some point there will be Christmas cake πŸ™‚

  36. I’m still a bit undecided- either a traditional but veggie feast, or Indian celebration food. If the latter I’m going for a full on biriyani with loads of ghee, and lots of side dishes. Whichever option it is will be followed by several Lindt Lindors and then a lie down!

  37. My first British Christmas – no idea of what exactly it will consist of, but I have been assured that we will have a vegetarian version of a traditional Christmas dinner! Plus loads of cheese, including Cornish Blue, one of my favorites.

  38. All very traditional – special recipes that we have each year – we do not like change !

    Champagne and smoked salmon blinis at 11.00 Then at 1.00 Turkey wirh coriander and walnut stuffing, pigs in blankets, butter forcemeat balls, orange and ginger carrots, roast pots, yorkshire puds ( I know not traditional but we love them). Filo butternut squash, vegetable and pinenut pie, cranberrry sauce & gravy.

    Mince pies & cream with satsumas

    Trifle in the evening with turkey & coleslaw sandwich ( if room !)

  39. I’m still trying to decide. We always have turkey and it’s always the least appealing thing on the plate. Knowing me, I’ll probably still go traditional, but I am genuinely considering doing a little nut roast, just for me. The irony is that I would still have the pigs in blanket and everything else with it. I think of myself as an apprentice vegetarian, clearly still with some work to do ;o)

  40. I’ll be eating way too much! Including Butternut squash wellington with all the veggie trimmings and lashings of gravy, then Christmas pud and custard, followed by chocolates!

  41. Hello!

    We are having turkey, braised red cabbage, roast potatoes and parsnips, pigs in blankets, brussels with chestnuts, swede and carrot mash, bread sauce, gravy, cranberry, then christmas pudding with brandy butter and clotted cream. If we’re still alive after all that we’ll have cheese!

    I’d write a list of what we’ll wash it all down with but it’s almost as long? πŸ˜€

  42. Turkey, pigs in blankets, stuffing, roast pots, brussels, carrots, cauliflower cheese and gravy. No bread sauce. Tried it once and it reminded me of wallpaper paste. For pudding either christmas pud or mince pies with extra double cream. Oh lordy, I could it eat it now πŸ™‚

  43. chocolate, bacon butties, turkey, roasties, parsnips, pigs in blankets, cranberry sauce, veg, xmas pud, xmas cake, more chocolate, party food, cheese and crackers, more chocolate. just a few things ill be eating lol

  44. Smoked salmon and goat’s cheese tartlets, goose and mountains of veg, homemade mince pies and Christmas cake, buckets of fizz! Can’t wait!

  45. we haven’t yet decided between a turkey or a three bird roast – but it will definitely be accompanied by stuffing, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, carrots, brocolli and sprouts……… well as whatever else gets cooked!

  46. Were having slow roasted lamb for lunch as were really not turkey fans. The dog has never forgiven us after 2009 where he pretty much had the whole thing! Then Im making a HUGE sticky toffee pudding with dates and a homemade vanilla icecream. Delicious! – if it all goes to plan.

  47. A roast dinner haven’t chosen the meat yet but will be having carrots roasted potatoes and parsnips , sprouts peas and mashed potatoes,Trifle, Christmas cake, mince pies . Pork pie , cheeses, sausage rolls meat pickles etc later in the evening. and not forgetting lots of chocolate which will be fitted in between everything else.

  48. We are only two so we’ll be having stuffed turkey breast (if we cooked a whole bird we’d still be eating it in September!) with honey-roasted parsnips, brussel sprouts, roast potatoes and, to follow, caramelised oranges (the Christmas pudding comes in the evening, when we’ve digested the rest!

  49. Home-made French Onion Soup to start (made by my brother in law), then turkey and beef with all the trimmings for the main course. I’m doing dessert and I haven’t decided what to make yet. I quite fancy a chocolate orange cheesecake, or something with Baileys in it. There’ll be masses of food as there’s16 of us including the children. And I’m hosting this year – eek!

  50. Turkey crown with sausagemeat stuffing,roast potatoes,homemade orange and honey covered parsnips and lots of veggies..oh and not to forget lush thick gravy :))…If i can fit it in christmas pudding and cream for dessert :)))

  51. We will be eating traditional Christmas foods – roast turkey, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes, roast parsnips, carrots and sprouts, drenched in gravy. Followed by a mince pie (I hope!)

  52. I’ll be eating a barbecued turkey…we’ve been talking about doing it for years and it’s finally going to happen πŸ™‚ (with our usual american style stuffing of course). MMM!

  53. Tiger Prawns to start, followed by a Traditional Turkey Dinner, Followed by Cheese and biscuits, all courtesy of a nearby restaurant!

  54. We shall have a houseful at Christmas so will serve Turkey and Ham, loads of vegetables and a few special things like pigs in blankets.

  55. Turkey, I just love it! I buy one far bigger than necessary just because I can’t get enough..first a proper traditional roast dinner, roast and mashed potatoes, sprouts,carrots,peas, etc and delicious gravy, then in the evening turkey sandwiches with fresh white bread..I can’t wait!!

  56. Prawn cocktail to start then Turkey with all the trimming stuffing, pigs in a blanket, roast potatoes, honey glazed carrots, cranberry sauce and gravy yummy then lots of sweet treats till i cant move!!!! followed by a hyper two year old, and lots of family fun and games lol cant wait : )

  57. Toasted muffins with scrambled egg and salmon for breakfast (a big treat for us)
    A traditional roast turkey dinner with all the trimmings and lashings of vegetables and gravy.
    I’m going to have a go at cooking a chocolate mousse cake this year for pudding – fingers crossed it turns out ok – but I’ll also cook the Christmas Pudding with Custard.

  58. Seeing your picture of sausages I am tempted to say those, but I guess it will be the traditional turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings with a glass of something bubbly to toast absent friends.

  59. Turkey crown with pork and apricot stuffing, sprouts, parsnips,roasties etc, followed by Hester Blumenthals candied ornage christmas pud – can’t wait!

  60. Turkey, Gammon, loads of nice veggies, my hubbies special roast potatoes, and yorkshire puddings…. mmmmm.. no pud for me but I will probably make room for a mince pie or two and quite a few chocolates x

  61. I will be attempting a five bird roast this Christmas with roast potatoes, glazed parsnips, brussles with chestnuts, carrots and some spiced red cabbage.

  62. We will have bacon butties in the morning.
    For lunch we will have roast beef (salmon cut) and turkey with all the trimmings
    For tea we will have butties from the leftovers.

  63. Not bothered about turkey so will be having chicken and duck, roast potatoes, creamed potatoes and lots of yummy veg ( my 7 year old daughters best part of the meal is sprouts) Yorkshire pudding, little sausage and bacon wraps, stuffing and cranberry sauce. Followed by a Xmas pudding that everyone will be too full to eat. Cant wait my hubby will be cooking and we are having my family over this year, so happy i have got day off as I work in a hospital and thought i would have to work this year.

  64. I have all the family for this year so with age ranges from 1-90 I will have to cater for everyone. I will be doing a Turkey with all the trimings,rosted veg and christmas pud or jelly and ice cream

  65. I will be sticking to the traditional Turkey dinner, although some of the food on display here will make me think twice about going for boring fayre.

  66. I’ll be eating …. far too much! We’re all going to my brother’s house for Christmas Day, so we’ll be eating whatever he has prepared, along with mince pies and mulled wine. mmmmmm, mulled wine ……..

  67. Turkey, turkey and more turkey with roasties in goose fat, sausages wrapped in bacon and a little bit on veg (husband doesn’t like too much – he prefers the rest!) and of course cranberry sauce and the homemade chestnut stuffing my mum gives us every year. Then later on turkey or gammon butties!

  68. will be eating free range goose from our local farm with fresh organic vegetables also from our local farm ,roast potatoes made with goose fat and my mum lovely homade gravy ,followed by my mums homade christmas pudding πŸ™‚

  69. We normally go to our local chinese on Christmas Day (I know, random, but it’s become a tradition!) but they are closed this year so we are reverting back to turkey.

  70. I’ll be eating gammon with roast potatoes, yorkshire puds, carrots, peas, parsnips etc. Followed by Christmas Pud. I am driving so the drink will have to wait until Boxing Day

  71. If eating/drinking on christmas day was an olympic sport – I’d be on the top of that rostrum no bother. It will be bucks fizz in the morning with scrambled egg/toast/bacon – later on it will be the full Christmas Traditional fare – vegetable soup followed by the ‘xmas works’ – turkey, ham, roasties etc. etc. smothered in gravy & cranberry sauce – guzzled down with a glass or 3 of rose wine. Once I’ve changed into the old jogging bottoms to make room for more …, it will be a few glasses of baileys on ice with stilton, crackers and some grapes (to keep up my 5 a day). Finally it will be a few turkey/cranberry/stuffing sarnies washed down with a mug of tea and 1/2 a selection box….. wish it was Christmas Day already!!!! Then come 1st January… its off to slimming world!!!..

  72. This xmas I’ll be eating as much as I can of the loveliest food!! Somked Salmon, prawns, mussels to start – then turkey and all the trimmings and cheese and crackers for puds – lovely!! Diet starts in Jan!

  73. Turkey, with all the usual trimmings. I am most looking forward to the roast potatoes, the one time of year that they are made in my household!

  74. We be at in laws .
    So minestrone soup to start.
    Roast turkey and all the trimmings
    Trifle for dessert ( just FIL will have xmas pud)

    All washed down with Prosecco, cava and sparkling rose

  75. turkey, stuffing, roast potatoes, carrots, those little cocktail sausages with bacon wrapped round, gravy, parsnip maybe, definitely no sprouts, mince pie and cream, loads of chocolates. i absolutely cannot wait.

  76. Turkey and all the trimmings cooked by my dad!he is a veggie but makes the best roasts ever!looking forward to not having to cook (though I’ll help with the dishes!)

  77. I’ll be having the full monty!!! Yummy turkey and all the trimmings!!! I’ll even have a brussel sprout on my plate (you have to at Christmas!!) although I won’t be eating it!! I’ll be sneaking it on to someone elses plate halfway through the meal!!! Haha!! It makes my mum laugh that I insist on having a brussek sprout even though I won’t eat it!!!

  78. Boiled ham and eggs for breakfast. Roast turkey for dinner….with a mountain of brussels for me because I love em and the rest of the house hates them! lol so I eat their share too! I should imagine that I will eat an absolute tonne of chocolate somewhere in between all of that too! lol

  79. My mum usually cooks a selection of meats, excluding the traditional Turkey since noone likes it that much apart from me. It’s just me, my mum and dad this year, Since my Brother and Sister both have other plans. So were just having Lamb =) Which I will no doubt cover in mint sauce haha.

  80. Well, I will be starting off with a chocolate orange, followed by Cadburys Roses, quality Street, then on to Roast Turkey, Roast Beef, roast spuds, veg and all the trimmings, pavlova, cream and more and more chocolates. Oink Oink but its only one day and then off to diet for the rest of the year

  81. On Christmas Day, I’ll be having a light breakfast of smoked salmon and poached eggs in white wine vinegar and water, with juice. This will be very early, as I’ll be cooking dinner for everyone.

    Then, for dinner, I’m cooking roast duck, parsnips, brussel sprouts glazed in lemon oil, yorkshire puds, gravy, and potatoes. We’ll be having a selection of side dishes, including sausages wrapped in crispy bacon, and we’ll be having a homemade Christmas pudding for dessert!

  82. Chicken!! We have chicken & topside beef. I don’t mind turkey, but for the price I would have to LOVE it πŸ™‚ So, we have chicken, beef, two kinds of gravy. All the trimming, 100’s of Yorkshire puddings (home-made of course) & my absolute favourite… Pigs in Blankets. Asda’s are the very best!!

  83. Traditional for me….my kids would not let me do anything other than a full turkey dinner with all the trimmings best part of christmas πŸ™‚

  84. Just found out that i’m pregnant so trying to stick to a healthy balanced diet! No over indulgence! Well thats the plan anyway! Lots of cabbage and spinach full of folic acid which is good for the baby!

  85. Organic free-range turkey and organic vegetables – will be sharing this with my rescue greyhounds – then pink blancmange for desert!

  86. Turkey dinner with all the trimmings – homemade stuffing, parsnips, sprouts etc! There’ll be 11 of us there, so a big family meal (though luckily I’m not cooking!)

  87. Prawn and Crab terrine, Turkey Crown with loads of roast spuds, veg, pigs in blankets and my own cranberry sauce, followed by Christmas pud and brandy butter….if we have room….if only I didnt have to cook it all!!

  88. Traditional Christmas dinner – hopefully with a few sprouts (I am the only one that eats them so they often get overlooked), Christmas pudding and then the day will be interspersed with far too many Quality Street chocolates and the row about who has eaten the most delux toffees!

  89. Every year we ruminate about having something different and every year we stick with the tried and tested traditional turkey Christmas dinner. I will probably have my annual foray into my favourite cheese – stilton (banned the rest of the year as my wife cannot bear the smell of it) and then hopefully Father Christmas will bring me some After Eights – sorted!

  90. I’m going to have the usual suspects in the veg department , plenty of flurry , mashed potato made with loads of butter and I think I’ll be trying an alternative to Turkey this year … A nice nut-roast maybe !

    Thanks for this delish competish !


  91. Being a proud Veggie, I’ll be eating Linda McCartney roast with all the rest. Tastes divine. And sticky toffee pudding because Christmas pudding is not nice πŸ™‚
