stress-free roast dinner and Christmas cooking companion
Recipes, videos, time plans and get-ahead tips
Gather the people you love around the table to enjoy the ultimate roast dinner. One you'll enjoy making and feel proud to serve. It will be more delicious and a fraction of the price of going out.
Once you've made this roast, you can use the new skills and recipes you've learned to make an equally amazing Christmas dinner. Just add in the extra sides I'll teach you - most of which can prepped ahead and frozen so you can enjoy Christmas day as much as everyone else.
“I don't think I'll every go out for a roast again! This is much better and not stressful. The roast potatoes are the best I've ever had and my kids now eat the brussels and carrots all the time as I make them with all sorts of meals. The Christmas time plan was a game changer and I love the extra Christmas recipes. I'd recommend this to everyone." - Angela
“Thank you so much! I'd never made Christmas dinner before but following your guide made it so easy. I think my mother in law was mad she enjoyed it so much and that I was so calm!” - Claire

“I've resented making Christmas dinner for years and was tempted to just buy everything ready done. But I'm so glad I bought this instead. It was the best Christmas dinner I've ever had and I made it! I reckon I saved a fortune - not just because I made everything in the run up from scratch, but also because we used the leftovers to make lovely meals after. I know what I could freeze and what to add to make things taste fresh and exciting.” - Simon

Hey, I'm Gemma
Hi I’m Gemma but all my friends call me Gem.
I’ve spent 10 years teaching thousands of busy people to become confident, organised and creative home cooks.
You can now buy my stress-free Christmas cooking guide, containing all my recipes, time plans and tips.
I cover everything from the Christmas Day dinner, cocktails and party food, a dinner party menu and what to do with leftovers.
All my recipes are written for any level of cook and my years of teaching, answering all sorts of questions, means I explain everything so you can confidently recreate everything yourself.
I’ve spent years creating and testing these 36 recipes and writing the detailed handouts, prep-ahead guides and time plans.
All the recipes have had the ultimate test of being cooked live and served in my classes. So, you can confidently cook up a storm without stressing out.

There is an option to download a US or UK version of the guide once you get onto the download page. The US version has American measurements, oven temperatures and ingredient names.
This is for any level of cook - that may sound vague but my 10 years of teaching mixed ability classes means that I demonstrate and explain what I'm sharing in a way that allows everyone to get value from it. Often the people who have been cooking the longest are the ones who don't realise they have not been doing things in the most efficient or instinctive way!
In every recipe I demonstrate, I start from scratch. There will be no pre-peeled onions or ready chopped things.
If you are a really experienced cook, this will help you get out of a rut, expand your repertoire, freestyle with confidence and learn new ways to tackle things you've always done without questioning why.
If you are a less confident cook you'll have the reassurance of my support and experience as your confidence grows, knowing that what you cook will work.
Whatever your level, investing this money and time in yourself to learn in a fun and supportive environment will change the way you cook.
How lovely. I'd love that.
