Lorraine’s Last Minute Christmas on BBC Two

12th December 2012

Tune into the BBC iPlayer now to catch up with Lorraine’s Last Minute Christmas, a festive feast of a show which sees Lorraine create tasty seasonal dishes, scrumptious edible gifts, and a stunning winter wonderland cake for a Christmas get-together.

All of the recipes can be whipped up even in the very last minute before Christmas, and are packed full of tips, cheats and ideas that are bound to impress – no one will ever know!

Learn how to add your own twist to mince pies and make a velvety Irish cream liqueur with only a handful of shop-bought ingredients. Bored of the same old dried-out turkey? Cook up Lorraine’s spicy yuletide roast lamb instead. But if traditional is your bag, enliven your turkey and trimmings with herbs and some special wintery ingredients.

If you want to give your loved one something special, try one of Lorraine’s edible Christmas goodies – including sparkling stained glass window cinnamon cookies, dark and white chocolate bark and mulled wine sachets. And of course, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without one of Lorraine’s trademark cakes – this year she’s created a traybake fruit sponge, topped with shiny meringue peaks. And she shares her secret for the perfect glossy meringue – what more could you want for Christmas?

You can catch up with Lorraine’s Last Minute Christmas on the BBC iPlayer
and visit their website for all her festive recipes. Happy Holidays!
