Waitrose hosts a Heston Christmas

Waitrose has announced additions to its Heston from Waitrose range of Christmas fare.

This year, Michelin-starred chef Heston Blumenthal (who is a Waitrose ambassador) will introduce a luxury Venison Pate with Sour Cherry (£9). Made with three layers, it comprises coarse, smoked venison; smooth venison with chocolate; and a top layer of sour cherry and kirsch.

Also new is Heston’s Black Forest Panettone (£12.50/750g). This traditional Christmas sweet bread – inspired by Heston’s favourite dessert – is made with kirsch soaked cherries, topped with dark chocolate and decorated with sour cherries.

Heston’s range will also include the return of his famous Hidden Orange Christmas Pudding (£16/1.2kg), Persian Christmas Pudding (£14/800g), and Spiced Shortcrust Mince Pies with a Lemon Twist (£3/4s).

Also making a comeback for 2017 is the Chocolate Truffle Cake (£12.50). Returning in a smaller size with the addition of hazelnut pieces, the cake includes a nutty Belgian chocolate truffle with Christmas spices, hazelnut liqueur flavoured ganache and a festive gold shimmer.

Back again is Heston’s Edibaubles Chocolate Collection (£13.50/120g) – all made with the chef’s favourite festive flavours in mind; gingerbread, stollen, eggnog, chocolate wine, candy cane and Hidden Orange Pudding.

There’s also Heston’s Earl Grey Tea Stollen (£7) and 12 Mini Earl Grey Tea Stollen Bites (£4), plus a Turkey Brining Kit with Herb Butter and Poultry Jus (£59/4330g) and Sweet & Spiced Mincemeat Gammon (£13.99/1.32kg): a smoked, dry cured gammon with a mincemeat stuffing and ginger glaze.

Heston Blumenthal said: “Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year and I’m thrilled with the products that we are launching in the range.

“From a nod to the ’70s with the Black Forest panettone, to a rich and indulgent venison paté, this new range is perfect for sharing with family and friends this year.”
