Cooking for Christmas

by Josceline Dimbleby


Originally published as part of a cookbook series from UK supermarket chain Sainsbury's way back in 1978, this cookbook retains a devoted following to this day and has a host of ideas for a seasonal feast. The legendary mince pies, their crust enhanced with a subtle note of orange zest and the filling enriched with cream cheese, are raved about by fans including Jay Rayner.
