Have you ever had a Christmas cookery disaster?

If you follow the Christmas Planning advice on our blog I’m sure this won’t apply to you but even the best planned Christmas can go wrong. For example one year I fell over quite badly on ice and couldn’t move on Christmas Day so I had to leave my husband to cook Christmas lunch for our dozen or so guest. Luckily for me he is an amazing cook but it could so easily have been a disaster.

With this in mind I was interested to hear that freshone.tv, the production company founded by Jamie Oliver are working on a Christmas show for channel 4. The programme will feature home video footage of peoples Christmas cookery disasters. If you’ve ever had a Christmas cookery disaster they want to hear all about it… whether you fought for hours to fit the oversized turkey into your oven on Christmas day, or poisoned your in-laws because of an undercooked turkey, perhaps you’re one of the four million households whose cooker broke down at that crucial moment – Whatever the mishap they want to hear all about it … From the funny to the tragic, and the stressful to the very familiar. They want to see your home footage and will pay a fee for any footage they decide to include in their programme. For more information Email: christmas2011@freshone.tv or phone 020 3375 5099.

The early signs of Christmas.

I’ve just been watching the Last Night of the Proms after having enjoyed several of the Proms this summer, for me this marks an unofficial end to the summer.  Meanwhile today Jamie Oliver has been tweeting about starting work on his Christmas Special for Channel 4.  Also is it me, or have you noticed how early the perfume companies have started to advertise on television this year?  Somewhat like hearing the first cuckoo in Spring, I get the feeling that these are the first signs of the Christmas seasons.
