Rick Stein’s Christmas Specials {Giveaway CLOSED}

Winners: Michelle V, Angie B, Diana O, Waverlee F

• Cornish Christmas • Spanish Christmas •

Join Rick Stein as he prepares a variety of delectable Christmas dishes inspired by his gastronomic adventures in his beloved adopted county of Cornwall and his 2011 tour of Spain.


The people of Cornwall are proud of the fact that they do things differently, and the Christmas celebrations in this beautiful part of England have their own unique flavours and sounds.

Home for a while from his worldwide adventures, Rick Stein has a chance to enjoy Christmas in his beloved adopted county, joining in the ancient festival of Wassailing and cooking his own goose!

Rick Stein believes that no one celebrates Christmas in greater style than the Spanish, where the celebrations last for over a fortnight and the dishes they prepare are delicious alternatives to the usual Christmas fare.

Guests at Rick’s special Christmas party include two close friends who, together with Rick, cook favourite family recipes, and the Spanish ambassador.

This is a Christmas feast with a difference: clams with Serrano ham and oloroso sherry; lamb stuffed aubergines with Moorish spices; chicken with saffron and pine nuts and orange caramel creams.

SPECIAL FEATURES: Rick Stein Tastes the Blues: Rick combines two of his favourite passions in this evocative celebration of the music and food of the American Deep South.

RRP: $19.95

  1. We have a very traditional hot lunch followed by THE pudding! I always bake it early In November when as many of the family as possible can be around to give a stir for good luck. On Christmas Day we all eat way too much of it in an effort to get more of the coins which are slipped in just before we eat. My Dad is a Kiwi so we have a New Zealand 10c piece in the pudding, whoever gets that wins a prize.

  2. Fish and chips on the beach - Christmas Eve
    With grandparents holding the babies
    And cousins splashing in the waves
    Relaxing with the extended family!
