Cracker of a Christ­mas feast

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Television - TAY­LOR AUER­BACH Rick Stein’s Cor­nish Christ­mas, ABC1, to­mor­row, 8.30pm

WATCH­ING Rick’s at­tempts at skat­ing around the fa­mous Eden ice rink in Corn­wall, well, you can’t help think­ing that he’s lucky he can cook. And boy can Rick Stein cook. The pa­tri­arch of Bri­tish cook­ing now calls Syd­ney home, but in to­mor­row night’s fes­tive spe­cial we’re treated to a de­lec­ta­ble white Christ­mas in his na­tive coun­try.

The show kicks off with a warm spiced punch called a ‘‘ smok­ing bishop’’ served by an open fire that is sure to make even the staunch­est beach bum jeal­ous.

But with his trade­mark abil­ity to turn seafood into gold, Stein will leave you lick­ing your lips in an­tic­i­pa­tion of prawns and oys­ters on Christ­mas Day.

Oh and there’s a pear souf­fle this re­viewer would die for.
