Lyn­dey’s Crack­ing Christ­mas

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Mon­day, 8.30pm, Life­Style Food We have a fea­ture about Christ­mas cook­ing pro­grams in next week’s is­sue, but for now don’t miss the first of two episodes of Lyn­dey’s Crack­ing Christ­mas. Chef and broad­caster Lyn­dey Mi­lan shows you how to make light of cook­ing for tribes of folk at Christ­mas, with some new twists and some old favourites. Like Nigella Law­son, Mi­lan has a ten­dency to be a lit­tle cava­lier about quan­ti­ties and in­gre­di­ents, es­pe­cially for those of us who like a pre­cise guide. ‘‘ Add some egg whites’’ (how many?) ‘‘ some sherry’’ (how much?) ‘‘ and some mus­tard’’ (what kind?) There are no gim­micks here, no scenes of ex­otic lo­ca­tions, no pop­ping out to se­duc­tively chat up a shop­keeper, as Nigella fre­quently does mid-pro­gram. It’s just a woman who knows what she’s about do­ing what she does best in her own kitchen. If it seems like an in­struc­tional video at times then that’s a small price to pay for such a ban­quet of really use­ful in­for­ma­tion.
