In the chaos of the run-up to Christmas, Nigel Slater’s zen-like north London kitchen becomes a very soothing place. For a brief while, we can join him in an aromatic bubble where he’s only likely to be interrupted by the cat. Into this serenity, Nigel will gently set free a dozen of his favourite Christmas flavours, including cranberries and mulled wine. In two programmes, tonight and next week, he’ll cover snacks and treats
as well as his trademark simple ideas for the big day.

He also finds time to visit Norway, which is having a foodie “moment” thanks to clean, natural flavours and strong traditions. He’s there to eat, but is also looking for a special Christmas tree. Aren’t we all!


The food writer presents the first of two programmes in which he creates a selection of festive dishes, getting into the spirit of the season with ideas for both self-indulgence and entertaining. Nigel also makes a culinary trip to Norway, during which he goes in search of a special Christmas tree.
