Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Potato, tomato, and celery soup

    • veronicafrance on December 26, 2011

      This is a very nice, simple soup -- it would be good as a Christmas dinner starter, as ED suggests. I'd be tempted to use tinned tomatoes in winter, for better flavour and colour. Blogged here, along with a review of the book: http://www.larecettedujour.org/2011/12/elizabeth-davids-christmas-potato-tomato-and-celery-soup.php

  • The good daughter's mincemeat pudding

    • veronicafrance on December 26, 2011

      This was delicious. Basically bread and butter pudding with mincemeat in it; I used some stale brioche. Don't bother with the butter, you really don't need it with the fat that's in the mincemeat. Great solution if you have mincemeat left over and are either bored with mince pies or can't be bothered to make pastry. I blogged about it here: http://www.larecettedujour.org/2011/12/three-good-things-to-do-with-mincemeat.php

Publishers Text

The ultimate Christmas food book from the best-loved and most respected cookery writer of recent times, including previously unpublished material. Throughout her pioneering career Elizabeth David often talked about wanting to compile a short Christmas book. Over the years she collated recipes, articles and notes into a file and even went so far as to write an introduction for the book. Beautifully written and illustrated, "Elizabeth David's Christmas" contains the full file of around 150 recipes and is designed to take the strain out of providing festive food. All the classics are here: mince pies, stuffings and turkey, as well as simple first courses, party dishes and a range of desserts that make this book an irresistible festive fare.
