“CHRISTMAS is a time when we relax the rules, eat what we want and snack throughout the day as family or unexpected guests arrive. It’s also a time when we may over indulge so a quick snack can often be a replacement for yet another rich meal. The chefs at Primula Cheese know all too well how popular quick and easy ‘posh’ snacks are at Christmas so they’ve come up with their very own ‘Santa’s snack hacks’ including the Avocado dip Christmas Trees guaranteed to challenge any shop-bought nibbles.”
