"A great sense of place and occasion in a recipe book... Nigella is a very talented and evocative food writer." -- Time Out
Feast, like so much of Lawson's work, is a voluptuous and delicious piece of food writing -- Tom Norrington-Davies, Guardian
We use food to mark occasions that are important to us in life. Feast is not just about the way we cook and eat at the great religious festivals or big- deal special occasions, but about how food is the vital way we celebrate anything that matters...it's how we mark the connections between us, how we celebrate life.' Essentially about families and food, about public holidays and private passions, about how to celebrate the small everyday pleasures as well as the big occasions, it includes everything from Christmas, Thanksgiving , Hanukkah and Eid, to Passover and Easter; from Valentine's Day to that first breakfast in bed and Sunday lunch fit for the In-Laws; from Meatless Feasts to Midnight Feasts, from Partytime to the ultimate Chocolate Cake Hall of Fame; from weddings to funerals, from Georgian and Venetian feasts to children's favourites. Heartwarming, passionate, informed, refreshingly uncomplicated and full of ideas, Feast is destined to become a classic like How to Eat.Written with the same enjoyment, sensuality and practical awareness, and packed with over 300 recipes from all over the world and from near to home, Feast proclaims Nigella's love of life and great food to celebrate it with.

I'm so pleased I bought this though as it not only has her best Christmas recipes, it also covers lots of other events too. She gives a little background on her experiences then the reason why she had progressed the idea.
I was pretty nervous about trying out a new idea for Christmas, but the recipe was very simple to follow and a great success!
All in all this was a brilliant book in my opinion, and was well worth the money spent on it, I would certainly wholeheartedly recommend it not only for the feasts but for special family celebrations.
Just one word of warning the book is not light, so be aware if giving it as a present.
