When it comes to Christmas TV, Nigella has always been a staple on our screens and now the BBC has confirmed a magical one-off Christmas special that sees Nigella visiting Amsterdam and sharing her love for this beautiful city at Christmastime.

Nigella has been going to Amsterdam at this time of year for decades and her Amsterdam Christmas Special will explain why.

From visits to Christmas Fairs, artisan food shops, and her favourite spots, the chef and TV personality will pick up ingredients for her festive feasting, finding moments of calm and reflection among the lights and happy hubbub to bring the Christmas spirit home!

Nigella says: “There is nothing better than being able to share enthusiasm and joy, and I look forward to showing viewers the unique magic of Amsterdam at Christmas and unveiling new recipes that, while drawn from the history, culture and ingredients of this breathtakingly beautiful city, give ideas for fabulous, fuss-free feasting here at home!”

Dates and times have not yet been confirmed but once they are we’ll ensure to update on this page.

This is not the first Christmas special to have been announced by the BBC as the comedy show Ghosts has now also been confirmed, see details here.

We can’t wait for more festive TV shows to be confirmed.
