From bread sauce to gravy to pickles and more, Christmas condiments have become as much a staple part of the traditional Christmas Dinner as the main affair itself. If you’re planning on cooking this year’s Christmas dinner we caught up with our Exec Chef, Wayne Pike to find out his top recipe ideas for the most festive of sauces!
