Celebrate the 12 Days of Kittchmas
Join Kittch for 12 days of fun holiday recipes with your favorite celebrity chefs
The holidays are about family, friends, and the spirit of giving. It’s also the season of eating: Christmas cookies, eggnog, potato latkes, and glühwein are just some favorites we’ve been enjoying — and will continue to enjoy until the start of the new year.

If you’ve been spending time in the kitchen baking cookies or you’re planning a festive cocktail party for friends, why not get some of the best chefs to help you with recipes, and entertaining tips?
Broken Palate is partnering with Kittch to bring you the 12 Days of Kittchmas. Throughout December, Kittch will celebrate the holidays with live-stream cooking demos, party tips, cocktail recipes, and more.
During the 12 Days of Kittchmas, some of the country’s best chefs will stream live, sharing their homes and recipes with you. Cook along with your favorite chefs like Ming Tsai, Joe Sasto, Lorena Garcia, and Josh Capon — and ask them questions in real time.
From December 16 through December 29, your favorite chefs will demonstrate everything from how to make and decorate a gingerbread house to perfecting a brisket for your Hanukkah table. Other recipes include vegan sweet potato spice cake, chocolate peppermint cupcakes, and an octopus salad for your Christmas Eve Feast of the Seven Fishes.
