Nigella’s Amsterdam Christmas | Preview (BBC One)

Nigella Lawson’s love of Amsterdam’s food and culture at Christmas can’t be tamed, and this year for BBC One and iPlayer she’s bringing Dutch joy to viewers back home with Nigella’s Amsterdam Christmas.



Amsterdam is entrancing at the best of times, but Nigella wants to bring its special festive atmosphere and sense of enchantment to viewers cosied up at home this winter.



She has a long history with the city and her family ties go back generations. Her many visits to the city bring up fond memories of lights reflecting in the canals, the sights of people huddled against the cold drinking Claret Cup, the smells of spice-sweet and fruited breads, the crunch of icing-laced cookies.


With visits to Nigella’s favourite places in Amsterdam, this special will follow the tried and tested Nigella approach – alongside her unique narrative storytelling which viewers love.




Filmed in both London and Amsterdam, this festive special delivers the much-loved charisma, unique storytelling, and enchantment that viewers have come to expect from Nigella.



With delicious and accessible recipes along the way that will give a festive twist to Christmas this year, buckle in for a very personal journey through the Dutch capital this Christmas.

Nigella’s Amsterdam Christmas Special is made by BBC Studios (1 x 60’) for BBC One and BBC iPlayer. Airs Thursday 21st December.
