The Christ­mas Chron­i­cles BY NIGEL SLATER

Dish - - Books -

Oh, how we love Nigel. And yes, this book is all about a win­try fes­tive sea­son but it’s so well writ­ten and evoca­tive, we’d be pos­i­tively rapt to un­wrap it any time of year. Nigel es­pouses his love of winter and its con­se­quent cel­e­bra­tions, hark­ing back to his child­hood. While the recipes have frosty days in mind, there’s plenty here that lends it­self to Christ­mas in ei­ther hemi­sphere – de­li­cious vari­a­tions on clas­sic treats, much heart­warm­ing fare and fes­tive in­spi­ra­tion. Grinches may be swayed. Fourth Es­tate – $55 (hb)
