The home of buttermilk fried chicken, Yard & Coop, has launched its Christmas menu with some dirty old favourites making its way back onto the menu, for a limited time only.

This Christmas, Yard & Coop is all about bringing the festive feels, with Manchester folks having the chance to taste Santa at his dirtiest with the return of everyone’s favourite to the menu, Dirty ‘Santa’ Fries.

Diners to the Edge Street Restaurant can expect a plateful of loaded fries with three buttermilk chicken thighs, stacked high with Monterey jack cheese, maple syrup bacon, cranberry sauce and grilled sprouts, with lashings of homemade chicken gravy.

Not only will Santa be getting dirty this holiday season, also finding its way onto the menu will be Chicks in Blankets. As a nod to the Christmas Dinner staple, tuck into five super succulent buttermilk chicken drums wrapped in bacon, smothered in amaretto and maple syrup.

 Carl Morris, co-owner of Yard & Coop, comments: “At Yard & Coop, we clucking love a good Christmas feast and we get that it’s all about the turkey and the trimmings on December 25. But with Dirty ‘Santa’ Fries back on the menu, for a limited time only, this is your chance to get involved with the dirtiest bird in town – it is Christmas after all

“Or for those who are all about enjoying as many Christmas Dinners as possible in the run up to the Big Day, our Chicks In Blankets definitely beats its piggy roots. So what better way to get into the holiday spirit than tucking into your favourite buttermilk fried chicken, of course with our very own festive twist.”

Throughout the holiday period, the restaurant will be acting as a food bank collection centre for Manchester Central Food Bank. This Christmas, Yard & Coop wants to help provide those low-income families throughout the city with a variety of food staples.

Anyone looking to donate, Manchester Central Food Bank is looking for; bags of rice (500-1kg), Milk (UHT), Long life fruit juice, tinned tomatoes, tinned fruits, tinned rice pudding, tinned potatoes, biscuits, cereal and any ‘snack items’. Yard & Coop will be collecting until Friday 22 December.

Laura Morris, co- owner of Yard & Coop, adds: “We all can get so swept up in the Christmas madness, and it can be so easy to forget about those less fortunate. Of course, we can’t wait to see all our diners come through the door to try our new Christmas menu, but it means so much to us to help those less fortunate in the city and if all our diners just brought a couple of items each we could really make a difference. All people need to do is bring one bag of their donated items, and in return for every bag given they’ll get one of our staff drinks at staff prices. Winner Winner.”
