Video: Marks & Spencer Christmas Food Commercial (2006)

"Lincolnshire red cabbage with apple and cranberries, slow braised in red wine and tawny port sauce." In print, that doesn't sound particularly tantalizing. Spoken by a breathy British female narrator over slow-motion footage of the cabbage being dropped out of a spoon, though, is another matter. This commercial from British retailer Marks & Spencer is probably the most food-porny Christmas-related video I've ever seen. Watch the video after the jump.
