Christmas Taste Awards 2016

I don't know about you, but I have already spotted Christmas food appearing on supermarket shelves, but which mince pies, salmon or party food to buy can be something of a lottery as food stores compete to offer the best prices. But it's not all about price - quality at Christmas time can be a key component in a successful festive meal. So which is the best to choose?

A panel of food experts have already been testing out the 50 best supermarket buys. Good Food's tasting experts asked 10 top supermarkets to send in their star products to be judged in 18 categories from smoked salmon to mince pies to beef joints. They came with up the best buys to make Christmas special and here they are. The results were compiled by an independent adjudicator.
