Product Description

Product Description

The essential guide to successful festive entertaining, covering a wide topics and including Delia's famous 36 hour countdown to Christmas lunch.

From Amazon.co.uk

It's never too early to start planning a Christmas dinner extravaganza and Delia's guide covers every essential aspect of yuletide festive fare, from turkey basics to brandy trimmings. Over six programmes she outlines all the preparations and planning you'll need to think about well in advance, along with guides to shopping for ingredients and, of course, the recipes themselves. You'll learn how to glaze a ham, stuff a goose and make mulled wine, and how to choose the right Christmas cake and the best dessert wines to accompany it. The emphasis throughout is on taking the stress out of the whole process and producing a feast to be savoured and enjoyed by everyone, including yourself.

The recipes cover all the basics, including Baked and Glazed Whole Ham, Traditional Roast Turkey and Bread Sauce, Christmas Pudding and Lattice Mice Pies, but there are also more unusual offerings, such as Mushroom and Quail Egg Tartlets with Hollandaise and Champagne Jellies with Syllabub Cream. Full details for all ingredients are presented clearly and can also be found in the corresponding book. Other subjects covered include mail-ordering luxury and gift foods, food to serve at drinks parties and vegetarian Christmas fare such as Cheese and Parsnip Roulade with Sage and Onion Stuffing. Whether you're planning to buy a hamper, pickle a pear or roast a pheasant this Christmas, the answers are likely to be in Delia's guide somewhere. --Steve Napleton

Having seen the original series back in the day and I have used the recipes in the book over many christmas's. I hadnt realised you could get this on video so when I did I treated myself and I am now sat in front of the TV watching an expert at work, they always make it look so easy!

Forget the modern remake of this, in its nasty cold silver/grey box and modern music. This is everything a Delia Christmas video should be - packed full of good recipes and with plenty of Christmas flavour and background too. And you'll have a snigger or two at the wine expert's shoulder pads....
