It divides up into:
spicy nuts, mulled wine, and some really lovely canapé ideas that I will definitely be trying. Little pumpkin tartlets, marinated beef skewers, little stilton gougères. Nothing obvious, just very delicious-looking. He has a wonderful imagination for dishes, I think.
FIVE CHRISTMAS MENUS
Vegetarians will be weeping at this point - it's turkey, goose, beef wellington, ham or sea bass.
Top marks here, actually. Anyone who has read the normal drag of Christmas books knows how hard it is to invent new recipes for traditional meals, but... Great stuffing ideas, intriguing gravy suggestions, good pudding recipes (pomegranate panacotta... mmm) There's a pear and saffron chutney for eating with ham that i'm making while writing this... smells delicious so far.
BREAKFAST AND BRUNCH
Personally, almost my favourite bit of christmas, and some good muffins (with chestnuts!), delish sounding ham and potato cakes, a provençal christmas bread.
LUNCHES AND SUPPERS
Actually, finally some good things for the non-meat-eater! Pumpkin soup with wild mushrooms and a fantastic shallot and goat's cheese tatin would make an amazing Xmas menu. Also some excellent and original non-clichéd suggestions for using up smoked salmon, stilton, turkey and ham.Read more ›
I have collected quite a few cooking books over the years and this one is a great addition. Plenty of great Christmas dishes. Some classics with modern twists and some completely new ones for me. The book is very beautifully presented with lots of mouth-watering pictures and clear, detailed preparation instructions. Typically for Gordon you get some very fancy and complicated dishes that take time and some skill to prepare. However, there is also plenty for the occasional inexperienced cook. What I like is that there are complete Christmas menus to choose from with dishes that go together very well. Each menu has a planning section to help you prepare ahead and organise your time efficiently. Again, typically for Gordon there isn't much faffing about just straight to the point to get things done. Just how a cooking book should be.
Very happy with my purchase and I cannot wait to try some of the recipes so Christmas might come early this year.Read more ›
And, for the best part, the book delivers with around 78 recipes, typically GR - some on the simpler side; some far more fancy!
So, if 'Roast Potatoes with Chilli & Turmeric' and 'Turkey with Gravy & Walnuts' is your thing, then this could be the Christmas recipe book for you!
Having said that there are a number of recipes which are also suitable for any-day cooking, e.g. the 'Pan-fried Sea Bass' on pages 68 & 69, which is subtly flavoured by a 'Lemongrass Velouté' and carries a one-page, simple four-step photograph set. Served simply with broccoli florets, as suggested, this is a lovely dish to serve in both formal and informal situations.
Another great everyday recipe, and not just for Christmas, is 'Scrambled Eggs & Smoked Salmon on Toasted Croissants', from pages 88 & 89, which makes a great tasting brunch!
First published in 2010, my review refers to the latest release :
Quadrille Publishing edition/2011, by Gordon Ramsay, with Emily Quah/ISBN 978-1849490931
◄O►TO AVOID POSSIBLE BOOKSHELF DUPLICATION IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE COVER PICTURE(& Dustjacket, if included) CAN VARY!◄O►
(Some dust-jacketed editions mention the Channel 4 TV series of the same name on the front cover and on the inside flap.)
From the back cover of my edition:
~ 'Christmas with Gordon presents Gordon's secrets for achievable, affordable and stress-free Christmas cooking. Based on classic ingredients with a modern twist and some surprising new tastes, his recipes will add a new dimension to your festive food.Read more ›
