All of the recipes in the show can be created in the final countdown to Christmas. There are tips, cheats and ideas that are bound to impress – even if you have left everything until the last minute.
Lorraine demonstrates how to add your own twist to mince pies, with a handful of shop-bought ingredients, and how to create an accompanying velvety Irish cream liqueur. She cooks up a spicy yuletide roast lamb, as an alternative supper dish. But turkey and all the trimmings form the centrepiece for the family meal, enlivened with herbs and some special wintery ingredients.
For anyone looking for last-minute gift ideas, Lorraine has a hamper of edible goodies – including stained glass window cinnamon cookies, dark and white chocolate bark and mulled wine sachets. And there is still time to bake a Christmas cake. Lorraine has created a tray bake fruit sponge, topped with sparkling meringue peaks.
