Jamie Oliver offers his stress-free guide to enjoying the build-up to Christmas and the festive feast. Jamie demonstrates his fool proof master plan by showing exactly what to cook, and when, across Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

There is a luxurious smoked salmon pâté; pork stuffing crammed with silky leeks, sweet peaches and roasted chestnuts; and goose-fat roast potatoes that are fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside. 

Jamie mixes it up with a cauliflower and broccoli cheese topped with ciabatta breadcrumbs and flaked almonds. Of course there’s gravy and some get-ahead dishes, with glazed clementine carrots and the best Brussels, with gnarly sausage and sage.
