Jessica Alba to cook Christmas meal for 84 people

Sydney: Actress Jessica Alba has revealed that she will be cooking a Christmas dinner for 84 people.

Alba, 29, is hosting Christmas at her Los Angeles home for her huge family, which includes more than 30 cousins, and unlike other celebrities who hire caterers she will be in the kitchen.

“It is an 84-person sit down dinner. I’ll be cooking for three days,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as saying.

“We rent tables and chairs, have a big tree and sing Christmas carols,” she revealed.

This is the third year Alba and husband, producer Cash Warren, have hosted the yuletide festivities at their home, but this time their house has been renovated to cope with the 84 family members and friends.

“I just renovated my kitchen so it is much more functional this year,” Alba explained.

“I have two ovens in the house, a roaster outside and a pizza oven outside where you can cook roasts and steaks so I think we have all bases covered,” she added.
