Christmas is a time for family and friends, for tradition
and treats. But, let's face it, when the pressure to feed
and entertain builds up, the festive season can start to
lose its sparkle . . .
That's where Nigella comes
in. With her no-nonsense approach, her inspirational ideas,
and her empathy for the practical realities of the
season--combined here with reliable, easy-to-follow recipes
and reassuring advice about planning and cooking
ahead--Nigella Christmas is guaranteed to bring
comfort and joy and make sure the season of good will stays
Here is everything you could wish for to
make your life and your Christmas easy and enjoyable: from
party canapés, cocktails, and manageable mass catering, to
scrumptious Christmas cakes and puddings; from no-fuss
brunches to quick-and-easy homemade presents (chutneys,
preserves, and other delectable standbys) and edible tree
decorations. There are mouth-watering recipes with a
seasonal twist, and simple menus for feeding friends and
family over the extended holiday season with minimum stress
and maximum enjoyment.
And, of course, exciting
and inspiring variations for the Main Event itself--from her
traditional super-juicy turkey with all the trimmings, to
festive ginger-glazed ham and the Ultimate Christmas
Pudding; from goose, rib of beef, and stuffed rolled pork,
all the way to a special vegetarian Christmas feast, a
chocolate pudding, a French Yule Log, an Australian
Christmas Pudding, and The Boozy British Trifle.
Nigella's cakes, as always, gladden the heart--and, like
many of the recipes here, are at home all year round--but
her At-a-Glance Christmas Lunch Countdown, together with
make-ahead and freeze-ahead tips throughout, can help take
the stress and strain out of the season. With its glorious
illustrations, Nigella Christmas will surely be a
perennial favorite--the book we will all reach for, for
inspiration and reassurance, when Christmas comes around
