The inspired Italian Christmas by Nigella, in tonight’s Christmas special when she throws a Nigellissima buffet party inspired by Venice.

It is off to the magical city of Venice to soak up the atmosphere and gain inspiration for dishes for a Christmas party with her Italian twist. It is a hard life for Nigella!

The book Nigellissima is wonderful, read about Nigellissima  – reviews and book information.

Returning home she creates a tasty buffet, including a Venetian cocktail with canapes that include Parmesan shortbreads and panettone stuffing squares.

Recipes include a crisp radicchio  “Renaissance salad”, Nigella’s Italian take on the traditional roast bird is to use turkey breast stuffing made from Italian sausages and cranberries steeped in Marsala and desserts include a marshmallow cappuccino pavlova using espresso powder and a Christmas pudding cake adorned with chocolate chips and pomegranate seeds.
