Christmas Dinner

This is Christmas dinner, Tom Kerridge-style. Tom is putting a spin on the traditional turkey dinner by filling a turkey breast with his amazing sage and onion stuffing then rolling and steaming it. Once cooked he covers it in a delicious crumble topping made from pistachios and dried cranberries. To accompany his Turkey Roll he demonstrates how to make the ultimate Rye Bread Sauce and then cooks Glazed Carrots with star anise and sprout tops with chestnuts. To finish, Tom serves a seasonal Spiced Orange Cake with Plum Sauce and Christmas Pudding Ice Cream, all washed down with his festive Mulled Cider.

Pub Classics

Tom shows us how to cook some of the nation's favorite pub meals at home and get them spot on. There's a classic Caesar Salad -- no frills, just some great ingredients that combine together to make a fantastic sauce. For some quirky beer snacks Tom goes old school with a selection of pub snacks including Pickled Eggs, Spicy Nuts and Pork Rind. Tom shows us his take on Pork Belly served with lentils and cabbage salsa -- a wonderfully balanced hearty meal. He heads to Suffolk to cook Fish and Chips with fresh local fish from a van in a pub then cooks one of Britain's favorites -- a Date and Toffee Pudding with toffee sauce that's full of dark, sticky, caramelized flavors. If you think you know and love these dishes already -- think again!

Sunday Lunches

Sundays are a time to relax over cooking and enjoy a hearty lunch with family and friends and Tom wants to show us how to make our usual Sunday roasts a bit more special. There's a classic Roast Beef that's marinated in treacle and served up with the best Yorkshire puddings. For an alternative to your classic meat roast Tom heads to Cornwall to get the star for his showy Turbot in Puff Pastry, a really classy dish. There's a lazy Sunday brunch of Scrambled Eggs and English Truffle and because Sundays are special there's room for two puddings; a Lemon Posset and a Chocolate and Ale Cake.
