Tom Kerridge Cooks Christmas
The chef puts his own spin on a variety of festive fare, giving a twist to the traditional roast by steaming a turkey breast filled with sage and onion stuffing and then covering it in a crumble topping made from pistachios and dried cranberries. He gives advice on how to liven up vegetables by cooking glazed carrots with star anise and sprout tops with chestnuts, and makes a spiced orange cake with plum sauce as an alternative to Christmas pudding
