About the book
Make your Christmas easier this year with this essential cookbook. It features a wide variety of festive recipes from Jamie's Turkey and Leek Pie to Gordon's Maple and Mustard Glazed Ham, and Mary's Cranberry and Apricot Fruit Cake.
Alongside traditional favourites come recipes from many of your best loved chefs, from Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsay, Mary Berry and Angela Hartnett to James Martin, Michel Roux Jr and Ainsley Harriott and even a brand new exclusive recipe from Michel Roux Sr, published here for the first time.
With 90 new full colour photographs, this gorgeously produced book brims with ideas for starters, main courses, side dishes, sauces and stuffings, puddings and cakes, party food and drinks - even how to make the best of leftovers!
There is also a planner to help you get ahead for Christmas - chutney in October, the cake and pudding in November - a step-by-step countdown to help you cook the perfect Christmas meal and dishes you can freeze in advance. Then there are menu ideas for all the key days of Christmas from Christmas Eve right through to New Year's Day.
From pre-Christmas build-up to New Year celebrations, your star chefs have it covered, and will make sure that you do too.
