I got this DVD, as, in a moment of madness, we invited both sets of parents & some of the in laws round for Christmas dinner & then as it got nearer, panic ensued (in the end there were eleven people wanting fed on the day)
This DVD was indispensible - I didn't use all the recipes but those I did use were excellent. However, where this DVD really scores is the hints,tips & excellent advice Jamie gives in terms of preperation & organisation.
I followed his suggestions as far as possible & it made life so much easier - I really appreciated how much easier on Christmas morning when I had the goose in the oven & then had almost no food preperation to do until about an hour or so before the bird was ready to serve (as I had,as Jamie directed, done most of it the day before !)
Great DVD (very reassuring - you really CAN cope !!) & the recipe / advice cards are also tip top.
My advice (if you are doing Christmas dinner this year ) is buy, buy, buy !! I really can't emphasise how helpful this DVD is. I think even if you are a seasoned veteran of preparing Christmas dinner, then some of the recipes will still be a revelation (the herby butters are a lovely idea). Worth getting a little in advance of Christmas, to allow you to use it to it's optimum - Thanks Jamie, this helped make my Christmas a rip roaring success.
