I have been cooking Christmas meals for the better part of 20 years. I have perfected the "art" of preparation for a stress free Christmas. I am going to share my recipes, tips and secrets here with you for a succulent turkey, the best roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding! Which I believe is the best accompaniment to a Christmas roast.
