Win an edible Christmas wreath

Chilli Marmalade Wreath Clifton Nurseries edible wreaths


*This competition has now closed! A winner will be announced shortly.*

 Here at The Good Food Guide, even our Christmas decorations have to be mouth-watering. So we were delighted to discover the handmade edible wreaths at Clifton Nurseries; beautiful, colourful, and downright delectable.

Clifton are even hosting a pop-up Christmas café, run by The Gin Garden. Each dish on the menus has at least one ingredient with a botanical theme; we reckon the glazed pork belly, roasted yams and cucamelon salsa is definitely worth a taste...

But back to wreaths.

We've got one of Clifton's zingy, edible wreaths to give away – made up of a lush base of bay and rosemary, with a gloriously colourful array of chillis and kumquats, it's a feast of a wreath, a thing of beauty that's guaranteed to draw admiring comments from visitors and neighbours.


How do I enter?

To win a fantastic edible wreath delivered straight to your door, simply tell us your favourite Christmas food and why, in the comments box below.

The one that tickles Consultant Editor Elizabeth Carter's tastebuds most will be the winner! The closing date is Monday 10th December.

You will have to register or login in to leave a comment.

An abundant cheeseboard filled with cheeses from Borough Market and La Fromagerie served after Christmas dinner.

My mother's "Greek" stuffing from the 70's, with sausage, breadcrumbs, chestnuts, cinnamon, tomatoes and dried fruit. Best stuffing ever, easy...

Ooooo it has to be those fabulous little pigs in blankets! Can never stop at just one (read: 5...!)

For me it can only be the classic mince-pie and sherry combo. That's what we used to leave out for Father Christmas, and he finished the lot, every time. That's a man with taste.

My favourite is undoubtedly turkey and stuffing sandwiches with crusty bread. These always taste best on Boxing Day!

Fig pudding as it's much lighter than Christmas pudding

It has to be Roast Turkey with all the trimmings! Including lots of sprouts!!

Definitely a cheeseboard - as I don't really like sweets/desserts :) :D x

Mince pies and cold turkey on Boxing Day!

Love all the trimmings that come with the turket yummy :-)

Bread sauce (and mulled wine, though not together) - the slight aroma and taste of cloves is just Christmas to me.

Chocolate fudge yule log is my favourite.I'll diet after christmas lol.

You can't beat ending the meal with Christmas Pudding and lashings of cream!

I love having leftover gammon & turkey with chips on boxing day!

9th Dec 2012 at 18:04 by paulandrach:

My own bread sauce recipe, served warm with piping hot turkey, roast potatoes and veg. I can't wait!!!

9th Dec 2012 at 20:49 by allibaby:

All the leftover sprouts and roast potatoes all mashed up and made into bubble and squeak for boxing day.

gingerbread - it is warming, tasty and decorative

9th Dec 2012 at 22:07 by HannahLI:

I love roast potatoes because they are so crunchy and yummy!

Turkey neck is a particular favourite of mine and there never seems to be any competition for it. When I was quite a lot younger my portion of a roast chicken, being the smallest, was the wings and the chicken neck. At Christmas I would eat the turkey neck first then anything else if I had room. Sadly it is becoming harder to find birds with necks!

Pig in blankets, just love the flavour combination

10th Dec 2012 at 11:20 by jbcomp85:

Sprouts!! Yes honestly!! I'm the only one in my family that likes them so I only buy them at Christmas. It's now a Christmas tradition that everyone eats one with their Christmas dinner even if they have to hold their nose to do it!! I love them though

10th Dec 2012 at 11:25 by Kirbyginger:

Bread sauce! Because making bread into a sauce is just epic!!!

10th Dec 2012 at 19:09 by louiseacat:

After Eights - why only at Christmas?

10th Dec 2012 at 20:58 by tinkertink2010:

Sage and onion stuffing! Love it!

10th Dec 2012 at 21:02 by Mlock:

It has to be homemade brandy butter with christmas pudding for me. Absolutely classic!

10th Dec 2012 at 21:05 by nbrad1234:

Turkey- I never eat it the rest of the year and general don't like it, but something about eating it for Christmas dinner is magical.

10th Dec 2012 at 21:30 by dreamalittle:

My family isn't keen on Christmas pudding so I usually make a big bowl of trifle for dessert - boudoir biscuits, lots of sherry (hic!), loads of fruit, homemade custard and freshly whipped cream. Yum!

10th Dec 2012 at 21:49 by Bubbles17:

Turkey because it goes with everything - pickles, sandwiches, curries.

10th Dec 2012 at 21:57 by rmac:

I love the trimmings, I can forgo the turkey, but not the HM cranberry sauce!

10th Dec 2012 at 23:20 by herbertappleby:

Christmas pudding with Brandy butter and single cream puts the ultimate end and gut buster finish to a Christmas dinner.
