This review is from: Nigella Christmas: Food, Family, Friends, Festivities (Hardcover)
Well really! If this is anything like the tv series Christmas with Nigella dont even go there. Slaving in the kitchen following this!(T V series) You must be joking!!! Add the turkey to a dustbin full of water and add every spice and herb known to man then put the whole lot in the back garden overnight. In our house the urban foxes would devour it or the local hoodies would pinch it!Slaved for hours over bread sauce and "Grannie Lawsons Ginger and bacon stuffing"which was simply inedible!Everything requires ingredints not available outside of London and quite frankly the effort is not worth the reult(give me The Kitchen Diaries-Nigel Slater every time and (ultimate insult to domestic godess) Delia!) Don't even go there unless you have a cook and staff in your home whom you can direct(grannie Lawsons family owned Lyons can you see her slaving over a stove?).
This says it all bought my Nigella (Domestic Godess) from the church jumble sale for 20p I rate this as expensive as I have now given it back!Most of the above applied to this volume.I do watch NL on the box from time to time and marvell that a small talent can be whipped to a frenzy by a lorryload of markrting and PR.The "Emperers Clothes" springs to mind not so with Nigel Slater (honest SIMPLE GOOD food)
