    Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge is offering takeaway Christmas dinners for £95-per-head – but you have to cook them yourself.

    The TV cook is cashing in on coronavirus uncertainty this festive season with his three-course boxes, which customers will still have to spend an hour and a half in the kitchen cooking.

    The 47-year-old – who owns seven restaurants – is doing traditional Roast Norfolk turkey with cranberry, chestnut and sage stuffing, which comes with hand and flowers carrots, roast potatoes, honey glazed parsnips and cauliflower cheese.

    The yuletide classic also comes with sprouts with chestnuts, lardons and sage brown butter, pigs in blankets and roast turkey and bread sauces.

    There will be canapés of Cumberland sausage roll, Kerridge’s brown sauce, truffle cheese cougère, potted Loch Duart salmon tart and pickled cucumber chutney.

    Dessert includes Christmas pudding with brandy butter, petit four, caramelised white chocolate pebbles and mince pies.

    However, there is a drawback for many customers facing Christmas on a shoe-string due to the pandemic.

    The boxes, which feed between four and six people, cost £350 plus a £30 delivery charge which has left some fans unhappy.

    Kerridge – who has appeared on Masterchef and Saturday Kitchen – is also offering other meat alternatives of Beef Wellington or Slow Cooked Shoulder of Cotswold Venison.

    He said: ‘Do you fancy making Christmas extra special this year?

    ‘Well why not try my Christmas Dinner home delivery box – it includes everything you need for a smashing Christmas Dinner to feed four to six people.

    ‘My Pirates have prepared everything for you, from the meat, veg, Christmas pud and mince pies. All you have to do is finish off the dishes on the day, lay the table and dig in.

    ‘Just pick between Traditional Norfolk Christmas Turkey, Beef Wellington or maybe try Slow Cooked Shoulder of Venison.’

    Dessert includes Christmas pudding with brandy butter, petit four, caramelised white chocolate pebbles and mince pies

    The offer is available for a limited time and in limited areas and postcodes.

    His website reads: ‘Everything in your box has been pre-prepared and par-cooked, which means the hard work has been done, so no fuss and stress on the day.

    ‘Simply allow approx. 90 mins to finish off and reheat everything by following a cook-along video with Tom, he takes you through what you need to do step-by-step.

    ‘Once you’ve completed the order form below, one of our team will call to confirm the details and take full payment.

    ‘Your box will be delivered on December 22 or 23.

    ‘Or you can collect from The Hand and Flowers in Marlow on Christmas Eve between 9.00am and 11.30am.’   

    One potential customer posted that she thinks they are too small. Michael Chapple said: ‘Presumably you are just showing the option for ”feeds one person”.

    ‘The plates shown are definitely not Christmas-sized portions for most households that could afford this.

    ‘You need enough roasties to sink a battleship.’

    Another said: ‘That’s a lot of money, and people like me don’t have it to spend.’

    Steve Stopforth said: ‘Hey Tom, any chance of doing a half portion for me and the Mrs?’

    Others were angry he couldn’t deliver across the whole country.

    Kay Fogg said: ‘Boooo! Tom, how about us in Essex?’

    David Price added: ‘Ignored the midlands area completely! Merry Christmas.’
