Padstow Christmas Festival - Friday 7th December

Olly is busily applying glitter to his beard in readiness for this year's Padstow Christmas Festival. Woo hoo! He’ll be on stage at 1pm on Friday 7th in the Sharp's Chef's Theatre with the one and only Paul Ainsworth.  It's always a complete hoot so do pop along if you're in the area.

New BBC Show - River Walks BBC South, Monday 10th December

Look out for Olly’s new show 'River Walks' next Monday 10th December 7.30pm on BBC South and then on iPlayer.  He’ll be sampling the utter delights of the River Itchen with his buddy Busby, from icy wild swimming to the delightful tradition of the Wayfarer's dole. 

Radio 2 Olly's Taste of Christmas, Christmas Eve

Set your reminders for Christmas Eve 12-2pm, Radio 2 - Olly will be on air sharing a veritable Christmas feast with Tom Kerridge, Prue Leith, Atul Kochhar, Candice Brown and Andi Oliver cooking up some delicious Christmas goodies and plenty of festive music to match.

Saturday Kitchen

Olly will be popping some corks this Saturday on BBC1's Saturday Kitchen with special guest Hugh Dennis and regularly over Christmas and New Year.  There are lots of festive flavours and tipples for you to enjoy and even an out-of-studio special where Olly and Matt get wild about cocktails....

In the meantime, let’s ramp up the festivities with Olly’s Hot Bottles:

BARGAIN WHITE: Cape White 2018 (12.5%) £5 Marks and Spencer - the only party white you’ll need with sharply defined refreshment.

SUMPTUOUS WHITE: Paul Cluver Gewürztraminer 2016 (12.5%) £11.99 Waitrose. South African splendour here from cool Elgin - scented and sumptuous this is a belter with Christmas curries.

PARTY RED: Spar Languedoc Red 2017 (13.5%) £6.50 All the sweet fruity fun of a cola cube with some warming wintery spice. Superb value for money - seek out a Spar and savour it!

BOLD RED: Le Grand Retour Malbec de Cahors, George Vigouroux 2016 (13%) £8.99 Majestic. Memorable as a blackcurrant boxing glove and punching well above its price.

GO POP: Tesco Finest Premier Cru Champagne NV (12.5%) £19. Fizz with focus! A rapier blade of rich citrus precision and a magnificent all-rounder for the festive season.

STICKY TREAT: For your Christmas pud this year, pour a glass of Morrison's The Best Pedro Ximenez Sherry (17%) £6 - outrageously sweet and deep, if you could drink Christmas pudding it’d taste as splendidly sweet and rich as this delicious drop. Serve chilled and save some to pour with your chocs after lunch. 

Keep in touch and here’s to a fun filled December!
