"I go traditional when it comes to Christmas. I like honey roast parsnips, sprouts - steamed and simple. I cook my carrots with with half oranges in the water, add a touch of sugar and it sweetens the water. Roast potatoes in goose fat. Cauliflower cheese with leeks." Kevin

"Fresh salmon for starters with a squeeze of lemon. Roast potatoes - crispy. Sprouts, cauliflowers, broccoli and carrots. Parsnips glazed in honey and ‘Karen’s delicious homemade gravy’, which everybody loves. Red sauce! I have to have red sauce.

Followed by traditional Christmas pudding and a chocolate bomb. Oh and cheesecake and shortbread baked by my Granddaughter” Karen
