I have a confession to make: I have NEVER cooked dinner on Christmas Day. Mine is a charmed life: living only a hop, skip and a jump away from my parents house, turkey and all the trimmings has ALWAYS been served by Mum- and this is a tradition that doesn’t look like changing anytime soon as we are dealing with a woman apparently happy to spend Christmas day steaming in the kitchen with all offers of alternative venues and cooks quickly dismissed!

Be it on her own paper crowned head, but let it be known Dear Housekeepers that if I was obliged to take the culinary reigns on Christmas Day, I’d be doing it in this scrumptiously festive little pinny from Cath Kidston.

Who’s in charge of your Christmas meal?
