The Ricardo Christmas Special

For Ricardo, the holidays are all about bringing loved ones together. That's why the Ricardo Christmas Special features a gathering of friends and family at Ricardo's house. Combining tradition and innovation, Ricardo cooks up a varied menu that’s both simple and refined. He reveals his secrets for cooking a holiday feast without spending the whole night trapped in the kitchen. We also go shopping with him, visiting, among others, his favourite chocolate-maker and butcher. Ricardo’s three daughters join him to cook fritters they really love, and the whole family enjoys outdoor activities at Mont Tremblant.
