Nigella Christmas is good - there's some fantastic cakes and drinks in there

Thank you TheLost. I didn't explain myself properly - I meant cookery books about anything, not specifically Christmas recipes!

I've just ordered James Martin and Jamie Olivers books. They do stuff I can cook for everyone.

Delia's Christmas book is thorough and reliable.

Honey and Co. is great. Fantastic recipes, and well written, and a lovely story of a terrific couple. Who cook. And eat. And work. And live together.

Hairy bikers Christmas one (can't remember the exact name its a few years old) is £5 on Amazon at the mo and is excellent and very easy to follow

Oh. For Christmas, not about Christmas? This year I have asked for Persiana, Tom Kerridge and Made in India.

I fancy Tom Kerridge this year, and I need to have a browse for another.

This year I'm asking for Momofuku and Plenty More.
In fact, I'm asking for the Plenty More "set" from Sous Chef - probably a bit of a rip off, but it's a treat - you get the book and 7 (I think) hard-to-find ingredients from it smile
Sous Chef do lots of things like that! smile

Ah didn't read the Op properly

On my Christmas.list is Jerusalem by Ottolenghi and probably a Madur Jaffrery book (an early one)as I'm in a Jamie Oliver curry rut at the moment.

Thanks for some great ideas - I'll put them all on my list and see what happens!!

Think Persiana is my top one though!

It's funny, Jung, but I was going to suggest Persiana, but thought it might be a bit too non-Delia on here, iykwim.

happy Christmas.
