Well, I guess the year is basically over, folks because Christmas content is officially being announced. First, it was early advent calendars and now it’s Christmas cooking specials. And not just any cooking specials. Donna Hay cooking specials.

Disney+ has announced that the queen of the Aussie kitchen, Donna Hay, is returning to tellies with Donna Hay Christmas. Here is everything you need to know about the show, and the treats that will come with it.

Donna Hay Christmas is coming

Donna Hay Christmas is set to be a four-part special, hitting Disney+ on November 2 (mark your cals). The food stylist and cookbook author will be sharing her favourite tips and recipes ahead of the festive season so all you home cooks can feel prepared to put on a show this year.

From glazed ham to pavlova and edible gifts, the show is set to walk audiences through some of the most popular Christmas dishes, and share advice on how to pull them together quickly.

On the new program, Hay said: “Christmas at my house usually consists of my three favourite things – family, laughter and super-delicious food. It’s these things we all treasure, and it’s what I’ve learnt to focus on when preparing and planning for the big day”.

“This year, through my new series Donna Hay Christmas premiering on Disney+, I’ll be bringing you into my world for a Christmas special like no other. I’ll share all of my best tips and tricks, creating show-stopping recipes and beautiful food styling ideas that will make for the most delicious, stress-free Christmas yet. Edible gifts are made with love and the planet in mind, and I’ll up the deliciousness and reduce the fuss on all your Christmas favourites, including show-stopping desserts that will put the ‘wow’ in your Christmas celebrations,” she added.
