Housewife Kate Scutt commented,"Normally the whole family caters as if we are all going to spend the entire holiday season at each others house. As a result we buy far too much, and end upthrowing most of it away. This year we may not be able to visit each other at all, or get to the shops. Worse still Tesco may run out of food, so we may end up eating everything after all".
She added, "It's a complete disaster noboday actually likes filo pastry, and I have never eaten a mini Yorkshire Pudding with a rolled up piece of beef before. Then there are the capers,the red cabbabge and the celeriac, I never had any intention of eating any of it. I just bought it to look good. What am I going to do now? I haven't got a tin of spaghetti hoops in the house. This is worse than canabalism, we could all starve by twelth night." The goverment, or Heston Blumenthall, should do something to help us!".
