Your order: The pork belly cassoulet.
In the immortal words of ice philosopher and rapper, André 3000, “What’s cooler than being cool? Ice cold!”. But there is one thing even colder than ice cold André, and that’s a British winter without a slow-cooked casserole. British restaurant Sussex are delivering an oven-ready pork belly and English pulse cassoulet, topped with smoked cheddar and chorizo crumb. Somewhere out there Jamie Oliver definitely just screamed ‘pukka’. But if slow-cooked meats aren’t your thing, there’s also venison lasagna, boulangere potatoes, pie, and a crab thermidor we’ve got our eye on.
For: A big old turkey and everything else you need.
