The Good Food Team and their favourite celebrity chefs have been planning and cooking Christmas for their readers for ten very successful years. This book is the culmination of all that experience and the definitive guide to all the seasonal cooking and entertaining over this most important time of the year. Full of tips and secrets to ensure that every dish is a rip-roaring success, the cook will be relaxed in the knowledge that all the dishes are practical and easy to follow. Time is of short supply during the festive season so the book shows the reader what can be done ahead, what can be frozen and how to cheat successfully when the chips are down. Step-by-step photographs will reassure first-timers, while new ideas and twists on old favourites will inspire veteran cooks throughout the season. Readers will find over 80 recipes, all photographed, and features also include the complete Christmas day feast with timeplan, and guest contributions from all the top chefs.
