Heston Blumenthal’s Perfect Christmas Dinner

Heston Blumenthal takes on what for many of us is the biggest meal of the year, the one we all look forward to, incorporating all of his Christmas memories into one glorious meal.

Yes, Heston, voted one of the world's best chefs and the proud winner of three Michelin stars, brings his multi century approach to cooking and delivers a once in a life time Christmas meal unlike any other ever seen.

Watch as six special friends, including Terry Wogan, Richard E Grant, Rob Brydon, Kirsty Wark, Sue Perkins and Dara O’Briain, enjoy a Christmas experience like no other.

This fantastic BBC episode sees Heston visit Santa’s little helper all the way in Siberia in his quest to make reindeer milk ice cream; he then lovingly rears two special geese on a feed mix containing essence of Douglas fir Pine to capture the tradition of Christmas past; and he travels to the Middle East in the footsteps of the three wise men to create a dish with Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh.

Furthermore, it’s not just the meal that makes this episode so extraordinary! Heston's creativity stops at nothing, turning a local car park into an incredible Christmas dining room complete with stone entrance and a magical forest of Christmas trees.
