Jamie Oliver’s new culinary title is the only cookbook in ‘The Mail on Sunday’ weekly UK bestsellers list of non-fiction hardbacks.
‘Jamie Oliver’s Christmas Cookbook’ is described as ‘packed with all the classics you need for the big day and beyond’.
The Essex-born writer, chef and restaurateur said: “I’ve got all the bases covered with everything you need for the big day and any feasting meals over the festive period, as well as party fare, edible gifts, teatime treats, cocktails and of course, exciting ways to embrace and celebrate those leftovers.
He continued: “I haven’t held back. This book is the greatest hits, all wrapped up in one Christmas parcel, and I hope you have fun looking through, picking your recipes, and building your own plan.”
Chapters include Smart Starters; The Main Event; Veggie and Vegan Plates; The Wonderful World of Potatoes; Scrumptious Vegetables Gravy, Sauces and all the Trimmings; Incredible Leftovers; Spectacular Festive Puddings; Afternoon Tea and Sweet Treats; Cute Edible Gifts; Super-Fantastic Salads; Dips, Bites and Handheld Nibbles; Perfect Christmas Drinks; and a Guide To Roasting Meat.
The publication also features technical information, such as cooking charts, and wherever possible, Jamie has designed the recipes to be cooked at the same oven temperature, to help with timings and oven space.
