The Christmas Chronicles is the story of Nigel Slater's love for winter, for the scent of fir and spruce, for ghost stories read with a glass of sloe gin, and beeswax candles with shadows dancing on the ceiling. With recipes, decorations, fables and quick fireside suppers, Nigel guides you through the essential preparations for Christmas and the New Year, with everything you need to enjoy the winter months.
Taking you from the first of November all the way to the end of January, The Christmas Chronicles covers everything from Bonfire Night, Christmas and New Year to Epiphany. Throughout the season, Nigel offers over 100 recipes to see you through the buildup, the celebrations and the aftermath. Here are much-loved classics such as goose and turkey (and making the most of the leftovers), mincemeat and the cake; recipes to make the cold months bearable, like ribsticker bread pudding with Comté and Taleggio, salt crust potatoes with blue cheese and goat's curd, and hot-smoked salmon, potatoes and dill; as well as bright flavours to welcome the new year, including pink grapefruit marmalade, pear and pickled radish salad and rye, linseed and treacle bread.
Packed with feasts, folk tales, myths and memoir and all told in Nigel's warm and intimate signature style, The Christmas Chronicles is the only audiobook you'll ever need for winter.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

Once again Nigel Slater triumphs .
A delicious absorbing listen .
I found extra reasons to go out in my car so that I could luxuriate in listening to each pages over and over again .
It's like sitting with a dear friend sharing memories and a few grumps among the charming shopping in markets and warm kitchen cookery , even before actually eating a single morsel ..
One thing though , A166 page PDF , No Index !
how can I locate my favorite recipes ?
