Christmas sorted: festive fare delivered

3rd November 2020 | Eativity editors

What, it’s November already? That means one very important thing – Christmas is coming! Of course, Christmas celebrations are likely to look a little different this year, and while most people will be glad to see the back of 2020, absent friends and family members at the Christmas table could make for a slightly less festive occasion.

But however you choose to spend your day, Christmas is always a great excuse to indulge in your favourite Yuletide foods. To help make your Christmas catering a little easier this year, Marley Spoon has released a range of new Festive Fare recipes, gifts and special offers. With plates to share, easier ways of cooking and a special limited edition offer from one of Australia’s most beloved food icons, you can relax and enjoy with the knowledge that, while it might not be the most merry Christmas on record, it will still be a delicious one.

Maggie Beer presents… delicious cheese boards

For those who are more of the eaters than the cooks, Marley Spoon has partnered with Maggie Beer to deliver everything needed to create a high-quality, low fuss cheese board, with the popular cook hand-selecting a range of her delectable cheeses, preserves and crackers for customers to order.

“Christmas has always been very special to me, and while it might be harder this year to have all your family and friends together, delicious food to share is such an important part of my world, and never more so than the festive season,” Beer says.

“2020 has been a tough year for every Australian, and while we’re all still doing our part to stay safe and protect one another, I’m so happy for this opportunity to partner with Marley Spoon to help bring people together and share delicious food.”

With different selection of cheeses, preserves, and crackers available for two-person and four-person boxes, the Maggie Beer cheese packs are made to share.

Festive feasts delivered

Marley Spoon’s new menu is filled with creative takes on the Christmas classics you know and love. With a full array of entrees, mains and desserts, each option has been designed to be shared with friends and family, so they’re perfect to bring to any festive celebration.

The Christmas-inspired recipes will rotate each week, and the special dishes will be available for 6 weeks in the lead-up to Christmas. The first menu includes options such as:

• Christmas tomato, basil and olive salad with garlic croutons
