 Bored with brussel sprouts?  Tired of Turkey? Just not fussed about eating the same old festive fare? Then listen up because apparently you’re not alone. According to research released today one in 5 of us lack the confidence to be more adventurous when it comes to choosing what we cook (and eat) at Christmas – even though we’d like to.  And surprisingly it’s younger people who feel the need to stick with tradition while the over-55s are more open to the idea of doing something different.
