Tom Kerridge mocked for his £16 PARSNIPS and BRUSSEL SPROUTS Christmas burger


Tom Kerridge has been mocked for his £16 Christmas burger with PARSNIPS and BRUSSELS SPROUTS in it.

The festive dish – which has a turkey, chicken and duck patty – has gravy poured on top of the bun.

Foodies slammed the veggie combo being inside.

Others said the gravy would make it hard to eat and also turned their noses up at their being brown sauce in it.

Some slammed the price which is £20.50 when served with chips.

The Festive Three Bird Burger is new to Kerridge’s The Butcher’s Tap and Grill pub in posh Marlow, Bucks.

Mark Norman said: “It’s beginning to look a lot like profit.”

Tom Courtney joked: “That’ll be £95 please.”

Chef Lee Hutchinson fumed: “Parsnip on a burger, definitely not for me.”

Erik Stevens said: “Eat that with a knife and fork?

“Would be messy by hand with the gravy on the bun.”

Callum Main echoed this adding: “It looks amazing.

“But how do you even eat it?”

Another – named Jack – added: “Too wet mate.”

Nic Bideau said: “Brown sauce, no way.”

Simon Hoare said: “Oh, my.”

Rosemary Fagen said: “Jeez Tom, what is the low cal version of this?”

Yet Darell Kettley gushed: “Oh my God, that looks amazing.”

Robbie Cave said: “Looks proper handsome.”

Elaine Ames joked: “I’m hungover and hungry, this has made me very emotional.

“Any chance you could pop one over to Nottingham in the next 20 minutes?”

The TV chef, 50, said: “Get ready for the Festive Three Bird Burger, now available at The Butcher’s Tap and Grill, Marlow.

“A three bird patty of chicken, turkey and duck with Wensleydale cheese and wrapped in bacon.

“Topped with a honey roasted parsnip, creamed sprouts and brown sauce.

“Complete with a jug of gravy – it’s one partridge short of a pear tree.

“Guaranteed to bring the festive joy this December.”

Kerridge owns eight restaurants in the UK and has three Michelin stars.

A month ago he was blasted for increasing the price of his cook-at-home Christmas dinner.

It contains no turkey, roast potatoes or vegetables but at £215 is £20 more than last year.

In October, he was criticised for hiking the cost of his posh fish and chips at Harrods by £2 to £37.
