Jamie Oliver reckons if there’s one time of year we should all treat ourselves it’s at Christmas. However, some may baulk at spending three hours cooking their spice-rubbed goose and almost as long preparing the accompanying gravy – even though the end result does look amazing.

Of course, you can just pick elements from his Christmas menu: his roast potatoes are definite winners and if you’ve ever wondered what people do with an Italian panettone once they’ve admired the gorgeous packaging, a sumptuous chocolate-studded bread and butter pud is the answer.

There are also tips for using leftovers (a fragrant Thai curry), avoiding a soggy bottom on your beef wellington and making dynamite cocktails. 

Failing that, you can just gaze in wonder at his Christmas jumpers.


Jamie Oliver whips up a selection of festive, easily prepared dishes in his own kitchen, showing viewers how to impress friends and family with a menu full of delicious treats. Recipes for some of the chef's personal favourites, including beef Wellington, roast goose with all the trimmings, cocktails, steamed goose buns, and chocolate and marmalade panettone bread-and-butter tart, are certain to help keen cooks raise their Christmas spread to the next level.
