I wouldn't describe myself as a great cook, but in the colder months I do like experimenting in the kitchen and giving new dishes a go, so I couldn't wait to open the book and get stuck in. And after trying various recipes, without burning the house down in the process, I can say that I'm very happy with my copy of Season's Eatings - I particularly recommend the various gnocchi dishes & the mole enchiladas, and the pasta dishes are popular in my house. I am working up to attempting the delicious looking desserts…

The book opens with a short intro, then is spilt into nine sections, covering Halloween, Bonfire Night, Thanksgiving [no idea why - Gizzi hails from Cardiff], Christmas and it's lead up, and New Years. You get recipes for every part of a sitdown dinner - starters, main meal, desserts, and drinks. Of course you can use the recipes whenever you want, but it's nice to know that you're covered if you plan on inviting family and friends over for dinner over the next few months.

The how-to steps for the recipes are easy to follow, most of the ingredients are a lot easier and cheaper to find then they were in some of Gizzi's other works, and there are plenty of full-colour photographs providing illustration. Also the general layout is eye catching, so this is an attractive book, and would be something that would make a pretty and useful gift for someone, as well as a gift for yourself.

Gizzi's Season's Eatings: Feasts & Celebrations from Halloween to Happy New Year - Gizzi Erskine

This cookbook is from TV cook (eg 'Cook Yourself Thin'), trained chef and prolific food writer Gizzi Erskine, and she is in her retro cool element with this charming book of food and tips providing a complete guide for the festivals celebrated throughout winter. From hallow'een to bonfire night, from Christmas Eve to New Year's eve, Ersksine provides a package of recipes and guidance for each celebration to take you through hosting enjoyable events at home. As she says in the introduction: "I want to take the stress out of any gathering you will be hosting, while focusing on seasonal ingredients. This is not a book about healthy eating, this is a book about indulgence and bringing people together." She achieves her aim with both substance and style, with the book including guidance including a Christmas countdown, how to lay the table, stuff a bird, handle firewords and play charades.

Each chapter begins with a page on the history and background on the festival covered, and contains up to 10 (or, in the case of Christmas, double that) recipes including hearty main dishes, desserts, seasonal food novelties and snacks. Each recipe follows the same format, starting with a little paragraph of introductory text followed by number served, prep time and cooking time, ingredients then method. Many recipes also have a good quality photograph to illustrate the end result you're aiming for. Overall, the format is clear and informative and entices you to want to throw a big party just to have an excuse to cook them all! The contents is listed in more detail below.

I'll be honest, I don't buy cookbooks very often. I find most of them are too complicated to fit into the busy whirl of modern domestic life. It's not just the cooking time; it's the washing up. I usually find the internet is perfect for finding a new recipe when I need one, and it doesn't clog up my kitchen with unused books or millionaire barrow boys.

Christmas and New Year is something of an exception. There's a bit more time to create something special, and more of an inclination to do, so I thought I'd take a look at this book. Like all modern cookbooks, it's very well put together, lots of swish photos to entice you to eat, and a few art projects to help complement your festive morsels - glitter pumpkins for Halloween anybody?

As for the recipes, some of them look lovely, a few of them look incredible. A large percentage of them have something in them that one or more of my brood won't eat. Ok - this can be worked around, but a great deal of the recipes appear to have been created for the village of Stepford. Maybe if I lived in a idealistic version of the fifties, I'd have the time and inclination to cook these, but I'm not sure they're going to fit into our chaotic Christmas. (I should point out the recipes themselves are very contemporary and not at all from yesteryear.)

This book probably isn't aimed at me. If you're a modern, middle class, chef, with a decent kitchen, and a well stocked larder, you'll love this book. If it was just myself, my wife and some other adults for Christmas, the range of the book would be hugely expanded. For us, it's probably Aunt Bessie's, in between being whacked with a newly arrived lightsaber.

So a star rating? I've given it four, because I can see its appeal to the right person. Like all of these things, go to a bookstore and flick through the pages before deciding if this book is for you.

From Halloween to New year's breakfast - all of the festivities are covered in this heart-warming and belly-filling book from Gizzi Erskine. I have one other of her books, Skinny Weeks and Weekend Feasts which I enjoyed reading, but didn't really work for me as an intermittent fasting book when I was trying to do that last year.

There is a great selection of recognisable dishes, each with a Gizzi twist. So, if you are bored of plain mince pies, then try orange Earl Grey mince pies; if you want to make a different take on a pavlova, then try the grapefruit pavlova. In her other recipe books, some of her recipes are difficult to make because the ingredients are too obscure/difficult to source. In this book, she has taken this on board, for example, she says that the West Indian Curry Lamb Shanks should be made, where possible with goat shanks, but she is trying to make things more accessible for the average cook!

This is a celebration of not only festive food, but also the days of celebration themselves so that alongside the recipes there are other suggestions like some different ideas of halloween pumpkin ideas; how to make a herb wreath, cranberry wreath or a pompom wreath; a selection of charades suggestions or "who am I?" as well a planner for preparing for your Christmas Day meal.
