'Delia's Happy Christmas' Delia's Happy Christmas is another wonderful example of her precision. Nothing is left to chance in this book as it not only gives recipes for Christmas day but for the whole holiday period. Each recipe is explained in detail, as always, a real boon to the beginner and experienced cook alike. As well as the very traditional recipes the book includes some alternatives to try. Many of her recipes are not new but have been updated to include shortcuts such as bought pastry and instant stock, two things that may well have put off some readers of her previous books. To make life easier for the host or hostess, Delia also includes how to plan the whole holiday, what ingredients need to be in the store cupboard (they may not be necessary in every store cupboard but it does give all of us a starting point), and explains which items can be made ahead and frozen.
