The Best Christmas Food Ever

Series 1: 1. Martine McCutcheon

Paul Ainsworth and Catherine Fulvio are joined by actor and singer Martine McCutcheon, as they share their culinary secrets, perfect for creating delicious festive flavours throughout Christmas.

Today it's all about that wow factor as they rustle up mouthwatering dishes like the ultimate roasted rib of beef and an indulgent sticky toffee pudding. Christmas is all about pushing the boat out, whether that's the food, the decorations, entertaining or giving gifts and we meet people who, in their own way, go the extra mile to make Christmas superspecial.

Paul and Catherine have also selected their favourite 12 tastes of Christmas, and they create brandy-cured salmon with drop scones to showcase brandy, and rum, chocolate and marzipan truffles to highlight marzipan - for them, absolute must-have Christmas ingredients. As the kitchen fills with the aromas and flavours of the season, the fun and festivities begin.
