Christmas is a rare opportunity for the entire family to get together, usually around a festive dinner table filled with delectable treats that will undoubtedly play havoc on your waistline.

P&O CruisesOf course, this is all part and parcel of the wonderful traditions of the season but if you fancy doing something a little different or adding an extra sense of glamour, we have just the answer- or shall we say- some certain celebrity chefs do!

P&O have called upon their culinary experts, Marco Pierre White, Olly Smith and Atul Kochhar, to produce some yuletide videos for cruisers everywhere to enjoy…and we have all three ready for your viewing pleasure! These guys have been making waves in  the kitchen for years and have topped the charts in our Cruise Food Reviews. Hopefully, their videos will help you prepare the perfect dishes before Father Christmas (and your guests) arrive.

Firstly, here is Marco- whose menus are available aboard the P&O Ventura, Oceana, Aurora and Adonia– to show you how to wow everybody on Christmas Eve with a beautiful seafood platter.

Next is Atul with his scrumptious Boxing Day feast. Atul’s innovative talent in the kitchen can be sampled on the seas aboard Azura but with this fantastic tutorial, it’s as almost good as being there!

What is food without good wine? Here, Azura‘s wine connoisseur, Olly Smith, tells you how to decide on the ideal bubbles this Christmas.
