The pressure to entertain during the holidays can put a bit of a damper on the cheer of the season. But have no fear...that's where celebrity chef (and NPR Morning Edition regular) Nigella Lawson steps in. Lawson has a new book titled Nigella Christmas.
As part of Up to Date's continuing Culinary Expeditions series Steve Kraske broadcasts live from Webster House in Kansas City's crossroads district where we spend the hour with Lawson talking about her suggestions for elegant yet easy-to-make recipes for Christmas.
Nigella talks about local ingredients, cakes and sweet treats, tips for making dishes ahead, and much more.
