Review

Peter Rose is a national treasure, a rare writer who understands history and a very specific place, and in this book she uses that knowledge to leave me wanting nothing more than Christmas (or a holiday if you prefer, or a long, snowy afternoon) in the Hudson River Valley and beyond. This is a wonderful book! Molly O Neill, author of "One Big Table: A Portrait of American Cooking: 600 Recipes from the Nation s Best Home Cooks, Farmers, Fishermen, Pit-masters, and Chefs"
What a treat! Not only does Peter Rose provide us with an enjoyable history of Santa Claus but also with seasonal recipes of treats to enjoy while reading. Now, when asked about St. Nicholas, Sinter Claes, or Santa Claus I can safely refer people to a reliable source. Charles T. Gehring, Director, New Netherland Research Center
"Delicious December" is really two great books in one, revealing the little-known Dutch origins of American Christmas traditions, while also bringing into American kitchens dozens of lovely, festive Dutch recipes that few American cooks have ever heard of. Like a wonderful Christmas present, this book gives us historical insights we have long wished for as well as delicious surprises we did not even know to ask for. Stephen Schmidt, food historian and author of "Master Recipes: A New Approach to the Fundamentals of Good Cooking"
Peter Rose knows more about Dutch life and lore than anyone I ve ever come across, and she s done it again! This exuberant excursion into the world of Christmas reveals the Dutch roots of many of our holiday traditions and, best of all, provides us heaps of richly tempting recipes to make everyone s favorite season even more memorable. Nach Waxman, owner, Kitchen Arts & Letters, Inc."

Food historian Peter Rose s latest book is delightful reading I highly recommend it for blissful reading, for gift giving, and for easily getting one into the Christmas spirit. Firth Haring Fabend, de Halve Maen
Delicious December, for many, will be a new look at (and taste of!) a favorite holiday. Kaatskill Life
...I remember fervently reading [Rose s] books during my student years, so you can imagine how delighted I am to have her share some of her food recollections If you re interested in Dutch cuisine and its history, you might want to add her new book titled Delicious December to your Christmas wish list.
