'Exactly the kind of person you want to lead you through Christmas... a comprehensive volume' Diana Henry, Sunday Telegraph
Christmas at River Cottage encapsulates the very best that the season has to offer, guiding you from the autumn equinox, through advent and Christmas, and merrily into the new year with inspiration, traditions and indispensable recipes for every festive occasion.
These are recipes that have been honed over the years and are rooted in the River Cottage foundations of tradition, seasonality and sustainability. As well as the ultimate versions of all the classics, there are a whole host of new ideas for showstopping centrepieces, sparkling cocktails, prep-ahead canapes, edible gifts, livening up leftovers, as well as some of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's festive favourites. And accompanying all of this are tips from Lucy and Hugh on planning ahead, making natural decorations, effortlessly feeding a crowd and orchestrating the great Christmas Dinner so you'll also be able to find the magic along the way.
