Jamie’s Easy Christmas Countdown is a stress-free way to enjoy the build-up to your festive feast by giving you a foolproof masterplan to follow.

Jamie mixes it up with a beautiful cauliflower and broccoli cheese topped with ciabatta breadcrumbs and flaked almonds. Of course, no Christmas is complete without the most succulent, show stopping turkey complete with herby butter and the crispiest skin.
