Taste of Christmas—

Some of the nation’s best loved chefs and cooks – Prue Leith, Tom Kerridge, Candice Brown, Atul Kochhar and Andi Oliver – join Olly for a fun filled two hours of sizzling, slicing, basting and baking for the whole family.

Recorded exclusively in their homes and restaurants, the chefs create a feast of a menu for friends and family to enjoy, and the great thing is that listeners can make the entire menu at home.

Each chef will take over a part of the Christmas menu. Prue Leith creates the perfect dish for Christmas Eve ready for when the family arrive; Andi Oliver shares her best recipes for party food, and dishes you can whip up quickly for those unexpected guests; Tom Kerridge cooks the turkey and reveals his secrets for the perfect Christmas dinner; Candice Brown bakes some delicious Christmas deserts and Atul Kochhar turns Boxing Day into a brilliant fusion of British ingredients and modern Indian cuisine.

Olly will also be chatting to the food maestros about their Christmas traditions, seasonal slip ups, festive fun and special Christmas memories. Plus Olly pairs up the delicious food with some affordable wine and creates a celebratory non-alcoholic punch.

And of course the chefs and Olly let rip with their favourite songs to make a playlist of festive favourites.

Join Olly – BBC Radio 2, Monday 24 December, 12pm-2pm
