Christmas dinner this year is going to be better than last year. With the majority of Torontonians having been double-vaxxed, it’s safer to get together in small groups. Many of us look forward to a traditional turkey dinner with mashed potatoes, butternut squash, Brussels sprouts, cranberry sauce and gravy. This meal, however, doesn’t just appear on the table without a lot of behind-the-scenes work in the kitchen! For those of you who do not want to cook even a small turkey and trimmings, there are several Toronto businesses where you can pre-order your Christmas dinner in 2021 for pick up before Christmas.
