Aussie chef Curtis Stone will be showing people how to cook both classic and casual Christmas feasts in two festive TV specials which will air on Seven.

The programs complement Coles’ existing support for regular cooking programs including the partnership with My Kitchen Rules. They have been created and produced by Red Engine TV, Coles, Ensemble and UM.

The first program, A Guide to a Classic Christmas features Stone in partnership with Karen Martini preparing a traditional European-style Christmas meal, set indoors on a beautifully decorated table featuring dishes including a delicious pork roast, salmon gravlax and Curtis’ mum’s mice pies, all using delicious Australian produce.

In the second special, Curtis Stone and his long-time friend, Ben O’Donoghue, are back together again filming in picturesque Byron Bay and showcasing A Guide to a Casual Christmas. Most of the cooking is done outside with the dishes reflecting a relaxed summer inspired menu including BBQ prawns, mango parfait and a quadruple smoked ham that’s finished on the BBQ.

“These shows are a unique way for us to spark some serious foodie inspiration for Aussie families getting into the Christmas spirit and looking for that little bit of help with their menus,” said Coles marketing and store development director, Simon McDowell. “At Coles, we love food and the festive season, so we’re excited to be able to show Australians how to make delicious quality meals for their families this Christmas without breaking the budget.”

The first special showing the classic Christmas goes to air on Seven this Tuesday, December 9 at 8pm. The second special is on Tuesday, December 16, also at 8pm.

Justin Ricketts, CEO of Ensemble, said: “These are airing at a time that is truly relevant as people plan their family get-togethers. They are designed to both help people prepare their Christmas meals and also be excited about the forthcoming season.”

Seven, Ensemble and UM’s collaboration on the show follows the successful launch of the Style the Nation special produced for Target, which aired in mid-September.
