Merry Christmas 2008

Wasn't Nigella great in her new Christmas Kitchen programmes last week? Well, I thought she was. Jamie (oh the gravy!) and the Hairy Bikers (oh the florentines!) were great too. I also very much enjoyed Rachel Allen's Christmas Bake - two Christmas specials.

I have been asked by a number of readers what I cook of Nigella's on Christmas Day. Well, I do her maple roast parsnips, brussel sprouts with marsala and chestnuts, sausages in bacon and her Mother's bread sauce (Feast and Nigella Christmas). Also her brandy butter with the ground almonds in it, and this year the Ultimate Christmas Pudding from Nigella Christmas as well. On Christmas Eve I plan to do the Steamed Chocolate Pudding with chocolate sauce from the Christmas Day part in the middle of Nigella Chrsitmas.
I do also cook turkey, cranberry sauce, roast potatoes and other vegetables and stuffing, but from my notebook.

Well it's nearly upon us once more and whatever you all cook readers I hope all goes well in and out of the kitchen, and that you have a Happy, Peaceful Christmas time.

Happy Christmas! Hope you and the family have a wonderful time.

They were great programmes. We really wanted to eat Gennaro Contaldo's stuffed/rolled pork. Wow, that looked good.

Have a superb one!

Merry Christmas! Love you menu and number of Nigella ones on there too. I myself could easily get carried away and do an entire Nigella feast!

I've only just realised that I gave my blog post before Christmas the same same as your previous post, the curse of advertising!

Hope you had a great Christmas? I really enjoyed these programmes as well and though this year's Jamie Oliver one was much better than the last one he did. The Christmas pud went down a storm in my house so hope you liked it too. Have a very happy 2009.
