This book blends the traditional with the innovative in a very exciting way. There are all the old favourites - mince pies, Christmas pud, brandy and rum butters, sweets, cakes, stolen, turkey, goose, chipolata and bacon rolls, veg side dishes etc etc - but also a lot of interesting alternatives as well. Packed full of starters, mains, deserts, vegetarian dishes, alternatives to the traditional fare and lots of interesting ideas for the leftovers, there is plenty to inspire a truly mouth-watering Christmas.
What I loved about this book is that there will be something to come back to year after year - whether for the old favourites, or to try something new. My Christmas table will never be dull!
As a reasonably competent cook, I haven't had any problems with this book. The recipes are not complicated and all are well laid out with lots of tempting photographs. This is a Christmas cook book and therefore all of the recipes have the feel of something a little special, a little out of the ordinary. They are not the sorts of things you would want to cook every day - but who wants everyday recipes for Christmas?
I highly recommend this book. But it may be for the more dedicated cook who enjoys being in the kitchen at Christmas, as opposed to snoozing in front of the TV.
This book has lots of fun things to make and do with the whole family in the run up to this festive time.
