those expecting a Christmas on a tight budget can look forward to caviar, whole crab and king prawns after discounter Aldi announced it had taken inspiration from “the menus of Michelin-starred restaurants”.

It follows a report in May that found the UK’s increasingly-popular budget supermarkets are “falling over themselves” to cater for middle-class tastes.

Aldi customers will find king scallops in garlic butter, a hidden-centre Christmas pudding, and the choice of smoked salmon flavoured with whiskey and honey, champagne and orange, or gin and tonic.

The German chain has not revealed prices for its products, but says its UK buying team had taken inspiration from the finest restaurants to offer “a luxury Christmas that every family will be able to afford”.
