25 years on Darina Allen is back with a stunning new, revised and updated edition of A Simply Delicious Christmas


24-10-2014 09:15

You’ll still find all the traditional favourites here - Old-fashioned Roast Turkey, St Stephen’s Day Pie, the famous Christmas Pudding and the Chocolate Christmas Tree - as well as over 100 new recipes to suit modern palettes including succulent Turkey Crown with Exotic Mushrooms and Bacon, Christmas Quesadillas and a spectacular Plum Pudding Ice Cream.

 

A Simply Delicious Christmas caters to every need over the festive season, from planning ahead for the Christmas day feast, to suggestions for drinks and nibbles for entertaining, as well as recipes to accommodate those with food intolerances and ideas for edible presents.

 

It’s what Christmas memories are made of!
