FOOD TELEVISION – Tuesday 25 December, 1.30pm, 5.30pm & 9.30pm
Nigel Slater presents a nostalgic celebration of well-loved Christmas dishes, past and present. From a sea bass starter to a roast duck feast and a dazzling party trifle, Nigel demonstrates how special dishes can be made simply, especially when it comes to feeding family and friends over Christmas. Nigel also prepares some winter warmers, inspired by his own festive memories and gives his dad’s annual contribution – the Christmas casserole – a tasty makeover. Plus, there is a bold and bright winter slaw inspired by the Slater festive cheeseboard. Finally, an invitation to a venison supper in a Scottish castle completes the celebrations and gives Nigel a great excuse to create a new cocktail to toast Christmas and the New Year.
