TELLY chef Tom Kerridge is charging £215 for a Christmas box which serves four people — but includes no turkey, roast potatoes or vegetables.
Instead, customers get a beef wellington “wrapped like a present”, red wine sauce, pigs in blankets, sticky toffee pudding and “little treats for after”.

It is £20 more than his same cook-at-home offering last year and works out at £53.75 per head.
Online critics pointed out many families would need at least two or three. One joked: “All for the price of a medium sized car.”
Another said: “It would cost me £1,000 then for Christmas dinner.”
Kerridge, 50, said: “Let me introduce you to this year’s Christmas box, the beef wellington box.
“Inside we have the beef wellington, wrapped like a present.
“And to go with that, your red wine sauce.
“You also have pigs in blankets.
“Then pudding, sticky toffee pudding and Christmas spiced butter.
“And to finish it all off once you’ve made coffee you’ve got salted caramel fudge.”
“Little treats for after.”
Kerridge, 50, has picked up three Michelin stars and runs eight restaurants including the Hand of Flowers in Marlow, Bucks.
Last month, he hiked the price of his posh fish and chips at Harrods by £2 to £37.
