Waitrose Christmas brings festive cheer (and recipes) to your iPhone

What’s that? Less than one month until Christmas? Jeepers! And this year, YOU’RE hosting. No, there isn’t a turkey-with-all-the-trimmings delivery service near you.

Fear not. UK supermarket Waitrose has just released a free iPhone app that claims to have everything you need to make Christmas a tasty treat.

That includes more than 100 recipes for starters, mains, sides, desserts, baking and even drinks. Although what you need to know besides ‘Buy port. Open port. Drink port. Ignore gout-like symptoms’ we can’t imagine.

The recipes include nosh from Delia Smith and Heston Blumenthal, who are the stars of Waitrose’s TV ad campaign. And the app also includes cooking tools, including a Turkey Timer, and a Christmas Day planner to ensure nobody’s left waiting for their sprouts on the big day.

Naturally, the app also wants you to spend some money in Waitrose, with wine and gift guides, and details of your nearest stores, including opening hours over the festive period – good if you run out of port. Or sprouts.
