Award-winning Christmas food

From a turkey that's been crowned the best bird of them all to the chocolate dessert that's won the top sweet spot, discover the M&S festive food that's won awards and accolades this year

The fabulous festive starter

Smoked salmon is a festive essential, and this year, our Scottish Lochmuir™ Spey Bay Sweetcure smoked salmon was Taste Approved by the Good Housekeeping Institute, meaning it's been given the seal of approval by their rigorous testers. Twice-smoked, then cured with muscavado sugar and finished with a savoury dulse seaweed dressing, it's heaven on rye bread with a glass of fizz come Christmas day.

They said it, "has a great texture with rich silky mousse, bitter chocolate and cherries and a hint of booze. It’s also a practical shape to slice and serve"
