Watch as Luke Nguyen, Peter Kuruvita, Matthew Evans, Shane Delia and Gabriel Gaté get festive with their all-time favourites.

Join Adam Liaw at home as he draws on Asian traditions and childhood Christmas memories to create a mouth-watering spread for family and friends. As he prepares for the celebrations, all our SBS Food stars share their Christmas stories and recipes too.

Adam starts off his Christmas spread with a Japanese-inspired canapé of oysters with wakame and ponzu jelly. Then it’s over to the other side of the world to see what Luke Nguyen is cooking up in cold and windy Scotland. Holed up in Black Bull pub on the Isle of Bute, Luke prepares steamed scallops with whiskey soy for a roomful of merry Scots. Back in Sydney, Adam gets in the spirit of things with a special Christmas cocktail.

Down in Tassie, Matthew Evans continues the seafood theme with an entrée of snapper with tomato saffron sauce, while Adam whips up some incredibly tasty lobster rolls served on cute little brioche buns.

Things get serious on the other side of town when Shane Delia prepares his main dish of slow-roasted lamb shoulder with flavours of shawarma, and Adam makes an orange-glazed turkey with Scarborough Fair stuffing. Learn how to carve your cooked bird here.

Does your turkey end up like this? Maybe you should call the hotline.

We join Peter Kuruvita on the beach in his new home of Noosa for some super sweet coconut pancakes, while Gabriel Gaté presents a French classic: nougat ice-cream bûche de Noël. To top it all off, Adam takes a tip from his Asian upbringing and creates a light and fresh dish of watermelon with watermelon granita.
