5 fabulous festive cookbooks for Christmas 2017
Christmas gift guide: Cookbooks
Everyone knows a self-confessed foodie and there’s no better gift for them then a cookbook! I’ve selected my favourite 5 new cookbooks which will delight any foodie!
1. Cook Yourself Happy
Caroline Fleming’s first loves are food, family and Denmark, and this beautiful cookbook, shot in entirely in Denmark, celebrates the very best of Danish cuisine.
Drawing on her age-old family recipes, Caroline shares over 100 of her delicious and authentic recipes, each of them able to boost your sense of wellbeing, both inside and out - perfect for the damp and cold winter months!
2. Good Together: Drink and Feast with Mr Lyan and Friends
Good food, good drink, good company – it’s an easy recipe for a good time. Good Together sees Ryan Chetiyawardana (aka Mr Lyan) call on his many friends from the world’s best restaurants to share dishes they love to make.
He pairs them up with his stunning cocktails resulting in dishes and drinks which will wow anyone and everyone.
3. The Palestinian Table
There’s nothing better to cheer up a cold winter’s day than warming colourful Middle Eastern food. This collection of 150 recipes are easy to follow and authentic, all inspired by three generation of family traditions.
Reem Kassis not only shares recipes, but personal anecdotes and local traditions too, adding context and warmth to the book.
4. The Modern Preserver: Chutneys, Pickles, Jams and More
Preserving is an ancient technique which is well suited to the winter months. The Modern Preserver takes you through every aspect of preserving: from classic chutneys and jams, through pickles and fermentation, to cordials and compotes.
Preserving is an ancient technique which speaks to a modern sensibility. It puts you in step with the seasons, you can use up leftovers, and it helps you rediscover a timeless kitchen craftsmanship – all aspirations of the thoughtful modern cook.
5. Where Bartenders Drink
Following on from the coveted (and one of my favourites) Where Chefs Eat, this book takes 300 expert bartenders and spills their secrets, resulting in 750 recommended spots spread across 60 countries. Venues range from late-night establishments and legendary hotel bars to cosy neighbourhood 'locals'. This makes the perfect gift for foodies who love to travel...and drink!
Let me know what your favourite foodie cookbooks are! :)
