Weekend Cooking – Nigella Christmas

Nigella Christmas: Food, Family, Friends,…
I am cheating ever so slightly and writing this post in January! Just before last Christmas I caught on the television the end of Nigella Christmas the TV programme. I was inspired with one of her recipes and had to watch. Whilst watching, I reached for my iPad and located Nigella’s website

A few weeks later I was in the library and wondered if they had the Nigella Christmas book in. They did and what a whopper as I carried it home.

I spent a few hours reading and enjoying the recipes and pictures. The text is quite like Nigella having a conversation with you, it is like welcoming an old friend. There is a degree of familiarity and I liked that.

Back to the book. The book is a delight. It oozes quality and it is simply one of those books that says pick me up and buy me!

    I will have to look for one of her books at my library as I am not familiar with her works. I'll be looking forward to your posts.

    Nothing like being prepared! I like Nigella's books too, but haven't seen this one. I've been sorry to see all the trouble she's in at the moment.


  3. What a great idea! I love how you planned this ahead for us. Looking forward to your posts.
