The 12 stars of Christmas

Tesco's Martyn Lee shares his pick of the best things to fill your basket with this festive season

"Nothing makes me happier than smiling faces around the table, so Christmas is pretty much the perfect time for me."

Martyn's kitchen secrets... "I keep space in my oven free for the all-important goose-fat roast potatoes. For the turkey, I always brine mine for 24 hours with herbs and garlic before cooking. It keeps the meat delightfully succulent. After cooking you can finish it off quickly on the barbecue – I love the subtle smokiness you get, and it also makes leftover turkey sandwiches incredible."

Martyn says...

"For an unusual but delicious touch, whisk a little miso into our Tesco Finest salted caramel sauce to serve alongisde."

Martyn says...

"The wreath makes a great centrepiece: the delicious herby stuffing with pigs in blankets is just heavenly."

Martyn says...

“Variety is expected in our house, and this is ideal for upping the choice and allowing everyone to curate their perfect plate.”

Martyn says...

"When choosing cheese, double on family favourites (blue for me!), but make sure you've got a variety of strengths and textures too."

Martyn says...

“Straight-to-oven with easy-to-follow timings, our party food range is developed with busy days in mind, for more time to enjoy!"
