From the BBC1 presenter and bestselling author of Eat The Kitchen Diaries and Toast comes a new book featuring everything you need for the winter solsticeThe Christmas Chronicles is the story of Nigel Slater’s love for winter the scent of fir and spruce ghost stories read with a glass of sloe gin and beeswax candles with shadows dancing on the ceiling With recipes decorations fables and uick fireside suppers Nigel guides you through the essential preparations for Christmas and th. Such a beautiful book I read it over the course of a few months taking my time with each page It's a winter book but I began it when New Zealand was experiencing some very hot weather and though this made the recipes themselves unsuitable the words and images offered a lovely respite from the heat It was nice to imagine eating hearty winter meals tucked away inside away from the cold⛄❄ I first discovered Nigel Slater through his autobiography Toast which I picked up on a whim and thoroughly enjoyed I have since read of his work online and watched a few of his TV specials and find myself very drawn to him I am not very interested in food but the way he talkswrites about it fits well with me and my approach to things This is actually the first cookbook or perhaps accurately book about food that I have read by him I saw it in store a week or so after Christmas 2018 and instantly wanted it But due to my previously mentioned lack of general interest in food I decided not to buy it That seemed a reasonable decision Besides Christmas was finally over I didn't need a book that centered around a time of year that I'm rather neutral towards It was a week before I got back into town and I'm barely exaggerating when I say I spent that entire week thinking about this book Of course it wasn't my only thought but something in me was adamant that I should read this book As soon as I had the opportunity I rushed back to buy the book there were thankfully a few copies left amongst the general dissarry of books I felt the shopkeepers were just piling things where ever there was space Organisation didn't really return until well after the New Year I think with the endless sales they just gave upOne of the things I like best about this book is that it isn't just recipes listed There are stories fascinating insights into Christmas traditions and where the originated from Why we eat this dessert at this particular time I learned so much And the book itself is gorgeous The paper is thick the gold on the cover catches the light prettily the photos inside are wonderful it has a built in bookmark something I always appreciate This is a lovely book to read and use and would also be a very nice gift option for a lot of people I've loved reading it and shall miss dipping into it each day 🍰
