What is Jamie’s Christmas Show About?

Jamie’s Quick and Easy Christmas is all about simple and effective cooking tips and recipes.

The one-off 60-minute show will cater to the busy lifestyles of the general public without sacrificing on flavour.

Jamie told Channel 4:

People are busy nowadays, so the idea was you could flick through the book, find something you fancied and you’d probably have three out of the five ingredients at home already, so you’d just need to pick up a bit of salmon or some mushrooms on the way home from work.

Some highlights from the show include Jamie’s top tips for the perfect Christmas turkey and his game-changing homemade stuffing that comes in the shape of a crown.

“The purple one!”

Is there any festive food you would say is overrated?

Controversially, Christmas pudding. It doesn’t work for me. It’s too heavy, like an edible cannonball. But by fixing my hatred of it, I came up with my version: I introduced stout, chocolate and more breadcrumbs, which means lightness. And I’m telling you, my one’s badass.
