Across the course of five episodes, Jamie Oliver shows us simple ways to get the main elements of Christmas dinner absolutely perfect; the best turkey in the world, the best gravy, the best roast potatoes and the best stuffing. Then, he pimps the classic basic recipes with exciting new festive ideas, as well as offering practical tips on what food can be prepared in advance, great ways of turning leftovers into delicious meals and some amazing DIY party food. Jamie welcomes us into his home and shows us how, by getting the whole family involved, cooking at Christmas can be stress-free and fun. Jools, his Mum Sally and Dad Trevor, Nanny Betty and Sister Anna-Marie all get involved with chopping, peeling and telling stories about Oliver family Christmases. And when Jamie hosts a party, he gets his mates Gennaro Contaldo, Dexter Fletcher and Jason Fleming to muck in with the food. That way, the host gets a chance to have a drink and join in. And that's Jamie's Christmas message; if everyone mucks in, no-one gets stuck in the kitchen on their own and you can spend Christmas as it was meant to be spent; with your family and friends.
