Joy to the World. I was really looking forward to my new Delia Happy Christmas book and it doesnt disappoint. I have the original Christmas book too so was probably wondering at first, like others, would this be much different? Well Delia has really managed to ring the changes with this one, and it has brought us right up to date. It looks very elegant, very cool, calm and collected. This is one book to have with you before, during and probably after Christmas too, so many excellent entertaining recipes and ideas. New and old recipes, classic favourites and new twists all in one place. Lots of hints and preparation tips which will be particularly handy for the generation that Delia refers to, who havent cooked Christmas dinner before (and still a good reminder to those of us who have, many times!). I love the armchair shopping section too - if like me, you like to shop online, lots of great sites for your Christmas essentials.
Christmas just isnt Christmas without some of Delia's mums sausage rolls, hot from the oven, so do yourself a favour and make up a batch soon, grab a pad and pen and relax and plan your festivities. Cheers!

Format: Hardcover
Delia Smith's first Christmas book (published 1990) is the King of Christmas Cookbooks. Now she has brought out a new cookbook, containing some recipes from the old, and a hundred new ones too. Does this short-change her readers?

I think this book is a great acquisition. Unlike some of the other humbug-ish reviewers here, I relish the chance to try some new Delia Christmas recipes, and I think they are totally characteristic of her excellent style. (One reviewer complains many of the recipes here appeared in a WHSmith Xmas special Delia did in 2003 and 2004 but for those of us who don't have copies handy, most of what's in this book will be new.)

Plenty of things have changed in the two decades since the first book was published and the hundred new recipes in this book reflect that. For example, people eat a lot less meat. Out of eleven recipes in the vegetarian section, only three come from the 1990 book. A new watercress soup, a vegetable pie, a different cheese terrine, a macadamia and pistachio nutroast. These are just one example.

The sections with the most duplication are the classic sections like Christmas cakes and puddings and the preserves, which is sort of understandable as it is difficult to think up innovation there. But even in cakes modern life has arrived - the Dundee cake recipe has disappeared, and there are two delicious sounding recipes using Panettone, the Italian Christmas cake now widely available in supermarkets.

Lists of suppliers have been updated, as have menu suggestions now stretching to every meal from Christmas Eve to New Year's Day.

As the weather changed at the weekend I was inspired to sit down with my Delia's Happy Christmas in front of a roaring fire and had an afternoon of indulgence. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I'm now in the mood for planning my Christmas menus. There are 150 excellent recipes, I've earmarked loads and I know I'm going to have difficulty deciding which to do.

I don't have Delia's other famous Christmas book and so I was particularly looking forward to receiving this one. I've not been disappointed. This book is such good value for money. Even if you have some of Delia's Christmas recipes, you won't have the 100 new ones !! Some cookery writers would have just published a book on the strength of those new ones alone... but Delia is so generous and has included some of her original Christmas recipes too. This is excellent, 150 recipes, like two books in one ! Now I don't feel that I've missed out by not having all the Delia classics that my sister in laws rave about. I've got them too. It even has a last minute section that I will make good use of as I'm inclined to be a last minute Johnnie so this will help me no end.

Well done Delia on another cracking book. I just know it will be yet another No.1.

The origonal christmas book was great , the new one is fantastic.
It includes all the favourite recipes from the first book plus a whole load of new stuff to help us get through the cooks toughest time of the year.
Lots of helpful advice about what can and what cant be frozen plus details of companies who can deliver all those christmas essentials to your door.
Plus of course , many of the recipes are ideal for any family meal during the long winter months not just at Christmas.
Having used the origonal book for the last 18 years i shall look forward to Delia "holding my hand " through Christmas for many more years to come.
Dont take my word for it , buy the book and see for yourself just how incredibly useful this book is.

As a Delia fan, I have not been dissapointed by the book.

50 classic Christmas recipes, along with 100 new ones, plus some essential information to enable you to keep calm, and also enjoy yourself like everone else!

The thing I like best is that this is not a normal christmas cook book thet you only dig out once a year, there are plenty of recipes in the book that can be used at any time, and some lovely ideas for entertaining friends

Beautifully produced as always from Delia with stunning photography. I have already made several dishes with great success.

Far superior to the original Christmas book from Delia, now including sea food recipes too.

A must have to your cook book collection.
