EatWell Christmas 2022

This Christmas, we’re focusing on what really matters: love, connection and good food. The holidays are a time to bring family and friends together.

To swap stories and smiles around the Christmas table. To celebrate your wins and share your learnings from the year. And, of course, to raise your glass and give thanks to the beautiful bounty of food you’re about to devour.

This Christmas forget “perfect”. Don’t buy into the hype of a flawless Christmas day. There’s no such thing. Forget trying to create the perfect day with the perfect table setting and the perfectly cooked Michelin star feast. Life doesn’t work like that and that’s a good thing. There’s magic in the moments of chaos. There’s mess in the madness. A half-peeled prawn shoots across the room and lands in uncle Bill’s drink, dear old great granny loses her teeth yet again, the champagne cork hits the roof, the pine nuts burn, the cheesecake doesn’t set … but guess what? That’s a real Christmas. An authentic Aussie hoot. A true cracker of a Chrissie.

Our favourite host, Emma Dean, is back this year with a star line-up of Australian chefs such as Eamon Walmsley, Clinton Weir, Honey Child, Frida Deguise, Hamed Allahyari and Thomas Schnetzler. Together they bring you a flawed, fabulous and fun Christmas with all the meaning and all the mess.

Enjoy the celebrations!
