YULE LOVE THIS
Many a tasty morsel is dished up in The Christmas Chronicles by Nigel Slater
Nigel Slater loves winter: from cold, frosty mornings crisp with the scents of fir and spruce trees, to firelit evenings reading ghost stories “with a glass of sloe gin, and beeswax candles with shadows dancing on the ceiling”.
This lovely, evocative book celebrates all the best bits of the festive season, with recipes for every occasion – from a “jolly good” mince pie which won’t collapse in “the carol singers’ mittens” to a hotsmoked fish and leek pie to serve on Christmas Eve, to the big day dinner, and finally to Boxing Day and his suggestion that there is “no finer sandwich than the one built from the contents of the fridge on the day after Christmas”. Delicious in every way.
