One in ten Christmas cooks openly admit to having committed Festive Fraud by passing off pre-prepared food as their own.

The shock survey shows:

 • 40 per cent of fakers pass off pre-cooked meat as their own

 •55 per cent admit using pre-prepared vegetables and

• A massive 80 per cent claim a bought-in pud is their own.

Now EBLEX has committed itself to fighting this heinous offence by launching a 24-hour Roast Rage freephone hotline manned by a team of professional chefs and offering round-the clock advice and tips on cooking the Christmas meal.

Brand Manager for EBLEX, Jane Ritchie-Smith, said: “We have made it our Christmas mission to fight Festive Fraud and make Christmas cooking a pleasure instead of an ordeal.”
