When you read the introduction about Christmas at Fortnum & Mason, it seems like you're drifting through the land of plenty - or are you in the middle of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory? Not only children are fascinated by the fairy tale world that will be offered from November 5th, the Guy Fowkes Festival. The book immerses us in a Christmas wonderland, presents recipes from the beginning of November to New Year's Day, tells stories about tradition and customs and invites you to do some laps on ice skates. The book is very inviting. A story is told about the respective festival before the traditional recipe ideas are found. Each dish is complemented by a wine recommendation, so even a non-sommelier can score points with the guests with the right wine accompaniment. The recipes range from simple baked potatoes to sophisticated game dishes. You can find sweet and savory, feast on Christmas drinks or discover a lot of leftovers. Stories and ideas, tradition, customs, pagan lore, Boxing Day, New Year's Eve, and much more are the topics Tom Parker Bowles dedicates himself to. The book is of very high quality, lovingly illustrated and you will find many photos of the individual recipes, all of which make you want to try them out. A great work that is also perfect as a gift for “Very British” lovers. Essential for anyone who wants to make Christmas the British way. 5 Stars
