I put this in 'food' too but now i see there is a Christmas topic! Any good cover-all books that will help me with all kinds of christmas grub? Or is there a winning combination?

i have used my Delia Smith Christmas book every year and have made loads from it. I love it.

Delia hands down every time. I did make Nigella's ham and one of her chutneys one year and both ended up in the bin. They were disgusting.

Nigella's is great. DH didn't like turkey until he tasted a brined one.

I loathe Delia's style of writing. She's very patronising.

another fan of nigella.. mostly because each recipe has make ahead/freeze ahead advice. Delia is also quite good but not to my taste flavour wise iykwim
