Nigella’s Christmas

Revisiting Nigella Christmas

Recipe 2 – Chocolate Tiramisu
Whether is Xmas in December or July, Nigella’s Christmas is a book you can go to any time of year but when you do have to pull out a bit of tinsel and carols this is a beast of a book!

So who wouldn’t like Nigella’s chocolate tiramisu? Honestly, the easiest dessert to pull together ever, there is a decadent amount of Tia Maria going on, so no one should drive even after just licking the spoon on this one!! She is one clever lady and made me look pretty damn good at our recent Xmas in Jaugust!

Recipe 1 – Potato, Parsnip and Porcini Gratin

A whole heap of porcini, cream, potatos and parnips cooked for a super long time….. this is sensational!!

Enough to serve a family of 10! We do have some leftovers and they are not going in the bin that is for sure!!

I can never get over the picture on the front cover of this book! NQR!! But the recipes are lovely and it is full of an array of dishes for the festive season and this one is fabulous!

Book 30 – Margaret Fulton

Book 30 – Recipe 1 – Sprouts with Hazelnuts

Bit of creative license on this one as I forgot the hazelnuts!! Steamed and then pan fried with some butter and nuts – I think I steamed them for toooooo long, they went all British and over cook! Stick to stir fry or roasting I reckon!!

Book 30 – Recipe 2 – Gravy

Using Margaret’s guidance for a base I have finally beaten my gravy demons!! Gorgeous, thick and spiked with a touch of red wine and port!!

Book 30 – Recipe 2 – Pork Stuffing

Not a fan of stuffing the actual bird but this was a great recipe, simple and I just roasted it in a dish with the chicken in the oven. Slight deviation from the plan…. picked up physillium rather than breadcrumbs!! But it worked and we all got our fibre for the day!!

Book 31 – Recipe 1 – Potato, Parsnip and Porcini Gratin
