The perfect Christmas dinner


Who doesn’t love Christmas Day? The presents, the television, the opportunity to start drinking Buck’s Fizz at breakfast. And then there are the mountains of food, which everyone has pitched in to help make. It can be disheartening, however, if the dish you’ve carefully crafted is not consumed with gusto. But ShortList can put an end to those feelings of resentment as your mushy sprouts are scraped into the dog’s bowl. Or, more accurately, two-Michelin starred head chef of Marlow’s The Hand & Flowers, Tom Kerridge, can put an end to them. Choose one of the recipes, follow his tips and your contribution will be superbly gourmet.
