Nigella Christmas by Nigella Lawson, Hardcover £5 at Amazon

Found 2nd Dec 2011
This suddenly dropped in price yesterday (according to from about £12.50. From the looks of things it's never gone below around £8.50.

If you have other Nigella books, there are apparently quite a few recipes that are repeated in this (hence the reason I never bought it before), but since it's going so cheap I thought I might finally snap this up - great to have all her Christmas recipes in one book, and there are few in there I haven't come across before. Rather looking forward to putting it into action - there's a Hot Honeyed Vodka waiting out there with my name on it!

Product Description
Nigella Christmas comprises reliable, practical, easy-to-follow recipes and reassuring advice about planning and cooking ahead, presented in a gorgeous glittering package which will make this the ultimate gift to yourself and for family and friends.

Illustrated with over 250 fabulous full-colour photographs by Lis Parsons (photographer of the bestselling Nigella Express), including method photos and lavish spreads, Nigella Christmas is in a new, larger and irresistible format. It includes everything from scrumptious Christmas cakes and puddings, to quick and easy homemade presents (biscuits, preserves and other standbys) and edible tree-decorations, recipes for feeding friends and family over the holiday season with minimum stress and maximum enjoyment (cook and freeze ahead or slow-cook in the oven), as well as Christmas party food and drinks. And, of course, exciting and inspiring variations for the Main Event itself - from traditional super-juicy turkey, festive ginger-baked ham, special trimmings and the Ultimate Christmas Pud, all the way to the special vegetarian Christmas feast, by way of goose or pork-and-cranberry options and a Prodigious Pavlova...

Her cakes, as always, gladden the heart, and her 'At-a-Glance Christmas Dinner Countdown' helps take the stress and strain out of the Big Day itself. Nigella Christmas will surely be a perennial favourite, the book we will all reach for - for inspiration and reassurance - as soon as the Christmas lights start going up....
