Delia Smith's Christmas
About this deal
This copy is a gift for a New Yorker who has lived in the Uk he wanted to be able to reproduce our Christmas in NY NY. For some reason my family has always used dried pears instead of fresh, using half the amount of dried, and halving the simmering time.
What chocolate mousse had been to the 1960s, creme brulee was to the 1990s, suddenly appearing on almost every restaurant menu.

There are 100 new Christmas recipes added to this book and I think they are totally characteristic of Delia’s excellent style.
Plenty of things have changed in the two decades since the first book was published and the new recipes reflect that. There are also ideas for festive occasions from drinks parties to dinner parties, with dishes such as Roast Goose with Potato, Sage and Apple Stuffing, Caramelized Orange Trifle, and a Terrine with Four Cheeses.
