A Collection of Casual Christmas Menus Curated For You

A Collection of Casual Christmas Menus Curated For You


Dunch is a lunch / dinner combo much revered in my household.  Great for big groups (especially if there are kids who still nap), leaves plenty of time for a swim, playing with presents or in-laws in the morning before the main event and there is always time for a quick snooze on the couch between courses.

Start with drinks and nibbles and linger on through the evening to dessert, it’s designed to be casual. Loads of colour and choice with a sense of indulgence and abundance.

The best part of Dunch though, is of course you can stuff yourself stupid on Christmas ham at breakfast then work up an appetite for a 3pm kick off.

* All these menus are designed as feasts (Christmas is generally a pretty big and indulgent affair in the Tulloch household), but if you only have a few or too few hands to pull off a feast, just choose one or two from each course.
