Christmas is a time for family and friends, for tradition and treats. But, let’s face it, when the pressure to feed and entertain builds up, the festive season can start to lose its sparkle . . .
That’s where Nigella comes in. With her no-nonsense approach, her inspirational ideas, and her empathy for the practical realities of the season-combined here with reliable, easy-to-follow recipes and reassuring advice about planning and cooking ahead-Nigella Christmas is guaranteed to bring comfort and joy and make sure the season of good will stays that way.
Here is everything you could wish for to make your life and your Christmas easy and enjoyable: from party canapés, cocktails, and manageable mass catering, to scrumptious Christmas cakes and puddings; from no-fuss brunches to quick-and-easy homemade presents (chutneys, preserves, and other delectable standbys) and edible tree decorations. There are mouth-watering recipes with a seasonal twist, and simple menus for feeding friends and family over the extended holiday season with minimum stress and maximum enjoyment.
And, of course, exciting and inspiring variations for the Main Event itself-from her traditional super-juicy turkey with all the trimmings, to festive ginger-glazed ham and the Ultimate Christmas Pudding; from goose, rib of beef, and stuffed rolled pork, all the way to a special vegetarian Christmas feast, a chocolate pudding, a French Yule Log, an Australian Christmas Pudding, and The Boozy British Trifle.
Nigella’s cakes, as always, gladden the heart-and, like many of the recipes here, are at home all year round-but her At-a-Glance Christmas Lunch Countdown, together with make-aheadand freeze-ahead tips throughout, can help take the stress and strain out of the season. With its glorious illustrations, Nigella Christmas will surely be a perennial favorite-the book we will all reach for, for inspiration and reassurance, when Christmas comes around each year.

Nigella Lawson - Kitchen
A big, compendious, comfortable, informative and utterly engaging book, "Kitchen" brings us feel-good food for cooks and eaters, whether Express-style and exotic-easy during the week, or leisurely and luxuriating (in the spirit of How to be a Domestic Goddess and Feast) at weekends or for occasions. Divided into two parts - Kitchen Quandaries and Kitchen Comforts - Nigella gives us the wherewithal to tackle any situation and satisfy all nourishment needs. But real cooking is often about leftovers, too, so here one recipe can lead to another...from ham hocks to pea soup and pasties, from chicken to Chinatown salad. This isn't just about being thrifty but about demonstrating how recipes come about, and giving new inspiration for last-minute meals and souped-up store cupboard suppers. As well as offering the reader a mouthwatering array of new recipes, both comforting and exciting - from clams with chorizo to Guinness gingerbread, from Asian braised beef to flourless chocolate lime cake, from Pasta alla Genovese to Venetian carrot cake - Nigella rounds up her kitchen kit must-haves (telling us, too, what equipment we don't need) and highlights individual ingredients - both basic essentials and modern-day life-savers. But above all, she reminds the reader how much pleasure there is to be had in real food, and in reclaiming the traditional rhythms of the kitchen, as she cooks to the beat of the heart of the home, creating simple recipes to make life less complicated.

Hitvallása, hogy a finom, könnyű ételeket a legjobb alapanyagokból, a legkisebb felhajtással kell készíteni. Az ...és egyszerűen csak főzz! című szakácskönyv a fantasztikus saláták, tészták, húsok, halak, kenyértrükkök és desszertek tárháza. A könyv "Kényelmes kaják" fejezetében például bemutatja, hogyan készíthetjük el a tökéletes currymártást, ha úgy döntünk, otthon vacsorázunk, de megismerkedhetünk itt néhány régebbi Jamie-kedvenc átdolgozott változatával is – kipróbálhatjuk a Guinnessben főtt marhahúspástétomot, vagy kényeztethetjük magunkat pazar Jamie-palacsintákkal! A Hamari falatok receptjeinek segítségével a munkából későn hazatérve is összeüthetünk egy igazán egyszerű, ínycsiklandó vacsit. A Kölyökklub fejezet a gyerekeket csalogatja a finom falatok világába, arra buzdítva őket, kalandozzanak szüleikkel bátran a könyv ízvesztőiben – lapítsanak paradicsomot, loccsantsanak olívaolajat, magvaljanak olajbogyót, készítsenek röpke percek alatt kenyeret. Imádni fogják. Élvezd az életet, kóstold meg… a boldogságot!

Every Sunday, the whole clan gathers to cook and eat Sunday Gravy—their family recipe for hearty tomato sauce. These nourishing meals are the glue of their family. Cooking Italian with the Cake Boss shares 100 delicious Italian- American recipes beloved by Buddy’s family, from his grandmother’s secret dishes to Buddy’s personal favorites, with Buddy’s own signature touches that make dinner a family event.

It’s what we’re known for. But there’s another side to our family and our relationship to food, and it’s just as personal, maybe even more personal, than what we do at the bakery. I’m talking about the recipes and dishes, meals and traditions that nourish our bodies and souls when we get home. Just like any other family, we enjoy chilling out and spending time together, and there’s no way we’d rather do that than around a table, a place that keeps us grounded and connected to each other as well as to the relatives who came before us. As proud as I am of our professional success, I’m just as proud that we’ve been able to continue making time for our family and extended family—and we’re talking a lot of people— to meet several times a week and eat together. And now I’m honored to share with you my family’s favorite recipes and to tell you the stories of what makes them so near and dear to our hearts. I hope they might become favorites for your family as well, that they help you create memories to last a lifetime, the same way they’ve done for us Valastros. -- Buon Appetito, Buddy Valastro
