Nigel Slater knows how to re-create that post-blowout feeling with Christmas Day centrepieces that are hard to resist. The second part of his festive special deals with food for the big day and beyond.
As we’ve seen in his Dish of the Day series, Nigel is always delighted to refashion leftovers. Here he makes a proper one-pan meal out of the best bits of the big feast and insists that fresh fruit (in this case, oranges in a fruit salad) is the best remedy for excessive enjoyment.
In Norway, Nigel picks up the knack of home-made marzipan for turning into blueberry and marzipan cakes, and visits the fjords for some Scandinavian salmon.
The food writer presents the second and final programme of tips for a special foodie yuletide. He demonstrates how people can spoil themselves on Christmas Day and beyond with recipes for centrepieces and sweet treats, and makes clever use of leftovers. He also continues his journey in snowy Scandinavia to find out how Norwegians take full advantage of festive flavours.
