My Christmas 2013 Kitchen Roundup!


Christmas Special 2013_3 Hi folks!

Things are seriously gearing up for Christmas in my world as I'm sure they are in yours. The presents are bought, the tree is up and now it's time to get cracking on the food!

The big news is that the annual Kitchen Hero Christmas Special airs this Sunday night on RTÉ One.  We filmed it earlier this month deep in the heart of the Arctic Circle in Finland!  As you can see I managed to meet the big man himself!

In this special Christmas newsletter, I've included lots of festive recipes to keep you going in the final countdown to Christmas and some leftover ideas for after.

Wishing you and yours the very best this holiday season!
