From perfect party food and beautiful buffets, Aldi has everything shoppers need to raise a glass to the new year and celebrate in style, all at everyday prices.
Kick things off with a bang! Aldi’s Specially Selected Pulled Pork & Pancetta Cracker (£3.99, 400g)is made with British pulled pork and succulent smoky Italian pancetta, combined with seasoned British pork sausage meat in a buttery, flaky and light pastry, which is shaped by hand and sprinkled with a paprika crumb, giving it that special finishing touch. Available to buy from the 10th December.
The Specially Selected Antipasti Platter (£3.49, 290g) is an irresistible vegetarian collection of Mediterranean-inspired bites including gourmet olives, tangy sundried tomatoes and fresh cheese cubes! And what could be more luxurious than a plate of Specially Selected 24 Month Matured Parma Ham (£3.99, 150g). New for 2020, the incredible ham is gently matured on the bone to give it a sweet and succulent flavour.
Aldi’s Specially Selected Sharing Bread with Camembert (£3.99, 800g) is a stunning buffet centrepiece. A tear-and-share sage and onion bread wreath, studded with festive cranberries, with a whole French Camembert in the centre. Just bake the cheese in a hot oven and voila, an instant oozing sensation.
Give the festivities an Oriental with a selection of savoury treats, including Aldi’s brand new, delicate handcrafted Specially Selected Thai Roses (£2.99, 170g), Aldi’s Fusion Vegan Skewers (240g, £1.99), which are filled with either Sweet Chilli, Satay or Thai Green Curry or Aldi’s Specially Selected Thai Style Fishcakes (230g, £2.99), hand-made and responsibly sourced, served with a sweet chilli dip. Alternatively, embrace the return of the Oriental Vegetable Selection (212g, £1.99), and Vegetable Gyozas (210g, £1.69), served with a delicious chilli and soy dip.
Moving to miniature this year, Aldi’s Specially Selected Mini Pies (360g, £2.99) come in two flavours; British Chicken & Wiltshire Ham, and British Steak & Slaters Ale. Aldi’s classic Specially Selected Mini Beef Wellingtons (272g, £2.99), are also back; a delicious puff pastry with British Fillet Beef and a Mushroom & Thyme Duxelle. Or grab the perfect slider for any Christmas party; Aldi’s Specially Selected Mini Hot Dogs (268g, £2.99), and Aldi’s Specially Selected Mini Cheeseburgers (268g, £2.99) are in store from 10th December.
Toast the occasion with Aldi’s award winning Veuve Monsigny Champagne (£12.99) produced by the consistently excellent house of Philizot & Fils, exclusively for Aldi. According to independent wine critic and TV personality, Jilly Goolden, Aldi’s Veuve Monsigny champagne is worth double (£25) its £12.99 price tag, offering staggering quality for such a reasonable price. Its tart apple and citrus are great at cutting through the richness of the smoked salmon. And since its breakfast, a little glug of freshly squeezed orange juice couldn’t hurt. Available in store now, cheers!
