Want a Stress-Free Christmas Day? Planning ahead and being organised is the key. Here are our top tips for a calm Christmas... Check in advance if any of your guests (or their partners) are vegetarian, vegan, gluten free or have an allergy. It’ll save you from any last-minute requests.

If you’re cooking a large turkey, make sure you have a baking tray that’s big enough to fit the turkey but not too big to go in your oven.

Do a stock check of your plates, bowls, glasses, pans, cutlery, serving dishes and spoons. Buy more now, if needed.

Write a menu for Christmas Day and create a shopping list. Make a time plan working back from the time you want to eat. Break it down hour by hour – and factor in time for a shower and a glass of bubbly!

Plan seating arrangements checking you’ll have enough chairs for everyone and how you want the table to look. Perhaps choose a theme or colour.

Keep starters simple. Our smoked salmon (page 28) is perfect because it doesn’t need cooking.

Make sure your carving knife is razor sharp and ready to carve your meat perfectly.

Lay the table on Christmas Eve so that you can get up on Christmas morning knowing one job is already taken care of.

How to Carve a Turkey

1 Remove the turkey from the oven, cover and rest it for 20 minutes. Use a sharp knife to remove the legs, by cutting the skin that links them to the breast.

2 Separate the drumstick from the thigh. Feel for the joint with your fingers, then use the point of the knife to cut through it.

3 Cut the thigh in half to serve, or slice the meat parallel to the bone. Leave the drumsticks whole or carve them down their lengths.

4 To slice the breast meat, hold your knife at a slight angle and carve diagonally. Arrange the white and dark slices on a platter to serve.
