How to cook Christmas dinner? These are celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay's recommendations:
- Put a timetable down: According to the fabulous Gordon, it is not important to follow a minute-by-minute schedule, but it is helpful if you know exactly what to do during the day
- Prepare your veggies: Gordon Ramsay says you can actually blanch carrots and potatoes one day in advance so it would take only 45 minutes to cook them
- Let the turkey rest: This is Gordon's ultimate tip. According to him, the best way to cook the turkey is by putting it in the oven at 8 am, taking it out at around 11:30 am, turning it upside down and letting it rest -covered- for about 45 minutes!

- Keep it simple: Parsley, lemon, and garlic butter, are the only ingredients you need to make the turkey taste delicious!
