‘This book sits alongside turkey, chipolatas and stuffing as a Christmas essential.’ Tom Parker BowlesFrom the award-winning Ginger Pig butchers, here are all the recipes you need for the most important meal of the year, plus all the other get-togethers of the festive season. In addition to delicious dishes there’s a wealth of helpful advice, from how to stuff a bird to the art of building a festive cheese board. ‘Much though we love it, Christmas day is not just about poultry, so although this book has recipes for turkey and goose, we’ve included plenty of alternatives, like stuffed porchetta, rib of beef or celeriac steaks.
Because families and friends get together before and after the big day, we have included ideas for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, canapes and puddings for the days between Christmas and the New Year, together with advice on alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. For New Year’s Eve itself, choose between our recipes for a formal dinner or a more relaxed get-together.’ Tim Wilson, Founder of Ginger PigPacked with recipes for every possible Christmas, whether you’re feeding a crowd or cooking for just a few, this is the ultimate culinary guide for a stress-free, luxurious Christmas.
