Christmas is a time when we are prepared to spend whole days stirring, stuffing and marinating – and Nigella’s mantra is that cooking should be fun – if it isn’t, then you’re not doing it right! Domestic Goddess Nigella Lawson presents a new series of Nigella’s Christmas Kitchen. It covers everything she loves, food, entertaining, home and family. Across this five-part seasonal special Nigella brings to viewers some very special and delicious Christmas recipes. Nigella believes that Christmas is both a season to be treasured and a state of mind that has to be achieved by relishing long established routines and welcoming new ones too. It’s so much more than just one ‘fractious’ meal. It is also the opportunity of re-discovering slow cooking, preserving and the unhurried joy that Christmas can be. In these five festive programs Nigella shares her Christmas culinary short cuts and tips, plus recipes that can be prepared in advance, frozen and revived at Christmas time for stress-free suppers, topped off with the Domestic Goddess’ tips for throwing the best Christmas party!
"Christmas food is the best sort of food because it's about proper, unpretentious home cooking. Feasting isn't about formality: it's about providing friends and family with good things to eat." Nigella Lawson
