Work Christmas Party Starters Thread

Our options are:

  • Loch Fyne smoked salmon roulade with herring caviar, citrus vinaigrette and toasted sourdough

  • Jerusalem artichoke veloute with chestnuts

Please don’t discuss the inferior courses, such as mains or desserts, in this thread.

The artichoke for sure


The salmon for sure


I would order the salmon but I would prefer a third option

Mac and Cheese


That’s a main meal

Prawn cocktail please

Weird how determined Christmas lunch places are to make unpleasant food, had to swallow chunks of salmon roulade whole last year

All a bit posh for my liking. Where is the pate and toast, with added peanut butter?

I ate a lot of jerusalem artichokes last year after never eating them before and they made me so ill with really bad trapped wind.

Never again. I’ll take the salmon.

I don’t like soup for a starter.

I do, so imagine my disappointment at the ingredient “bacon”.

We’re going to Dishoom.

I say we but really I’ve invited myself onto another teams xmas lunch because I am a team of one.


Haven’t had a work Christmas meal in years but being taken out for one this year by a supplier. Going Salmon - Turkey - Sticky Toffee Pudding and I’m VERY happy with that.
