Nigella is back in her kitchen at a time when the nights are drawing in and most of us are up for a bit of extended kitchen work. Christmas is after all the last bastion of traditional cooking, it’s a time when we are more than prepared to spend whole days stirring, stuffing and marinating and the reward is a legitimate excuse to have a glass of wine at lunchtime! As always Nigella’s mantra is that cooking should be fun, if it becomes stressful then you’re not doing it right. In addition to the content of this three part series will be an element of travel, to provide some inspiration for the recipes Nigella cooks. A trip to a Salzburg Christmas market is the inspiration for Cinnamon biscuits, Christmas Stollen and a brandy infused Hot Chocolate.

Episode summary:

Nigella reveals how to enjoy the run up to Chistmas and how some of her sanity-preserving short cuts can make even the most routine recipes redolent with festive sparkle. Nigella begins by gathering inspiration at the Christmas Market in Salzburg and adds a few twists of her own back in the kitchen with her aromatic spiced ham and Christmas cake. Dealing with large numbers of hungry people invading our homes, all capable of defying the laws of nature by being perpetually hungry, is a Christmas challenge. Although the idea of canapés seem to resonate 1970s, they are always greeted with gratitude and Nigella presents some simple guides to getting them right. Salty combinations of Parma ham, creamy goats cheese and figgy wraps are quick and simple to assemble as are Nigella's spicy mini ribs are and her irresistible crab cakes. Saving the day is Nigella's never-failing hangover cure, a Cuban Chorizo and Black Bean soup.
