Fortunately I paid little for this book. I was expecting a nice book full of pictures and recipes, instead it is more of a history of Christmas, with a few very 'olde tyme' recipes and black and white sketches. I was hoping for tips and tricks and secrets of the Ritz's Christmas preparations, but was sorely disappointed.

By Eleni TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 4 Aug. 2010
Format: Hardcover
This is a lovely festive little book about Christmas. The first chapter; "Christmas at the Ritz", describes with detail how the Christmas season is celebrated at the London Ritz, from the week before Christmas until Boxing Day. The traditional and lavish celebrations described, make one dream of a perfect Christmas and provide excellent ideas for new family traditions.

The second chapter; "The Customs of Christmas Past", presents Christmas customs from around the world. Traditions are presented, like carolling, Christmas trees, house decorations, and the sending of cards, with their origins and how they were incorporated into British Christmas celebrations.

The third chapter; "The Twelve Days of Christmas", deals with the celebrations of the days after Christmas from Boxing Day to the Twelfth Night. There are detailed descriptions of the festivities, poems, trivia and lovely traditional recipes like "Glazed Ham" and "Celeriac and Stilton Soup".

The next few chapters; "Christmas Diners", "The Food of Old England", "Festive Cakes and Biscuits", and "Yuletide Cocktails", provide recipes for the above categories. The excellent recipes, among others, the "Roast Turkey with Chestnut and Sausagemeat Stuffing", the traditional "Mince Pies", the "Roast Goose with Prune Stuffing", the "Twelfth Night Cake" and the wines, cocktails and canapés served at the Ritz ,are great and accompanied by lovely Christmas stories, poems and trivia.

Wonderful addition to this book are the home made gift ideas from the last chapter; "Stocking Fillers". Various preserves and truffles can be beautiful and special Christmas gifts for loved ones.
