This is my go-to book for the festive season and in my humble opinion, no other Christmas book has ever come close to delivering the feel-good and reliable comfort that Nigella does for me and my family, time and again. The things I love about this book are really more about Nigella and the confidence her writing and recipes have always instilled in me. I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that no matter which of her recipes I choose to recreate, it will work and turn out perfectly no matter what... As ever, Nigella retains her rightful crown at the Queen of the cookery scene
