Editorial Reviews


Wolfgang Puck
"Eating at any of Bradley Ogden’s restaurants has always felt like a celebration. So a holiday cookbook from Bradley is ideal. And if you aren’t a personal friend who is lucky enough to be invited to Bradley’s own home for the holidays, Holiday Dinners with Bradley Ogden is the next best thing: You get to cook his recipes, and serve them to your guests as your own holiday creations!"

Jacques Pépin, Chef, cookbook author, and PBS-TV cooking series host
"Your holiday meals may never be the same. Superbly illustrated, classic and modern at the same time, Holiday Dinners with Bradley Ogden has taken American classics and modernized them in thorough, intelligent, and innovative ways. I have enjoyed Bradley’s food for years from Campton Place and One Market in San Francisco and the Lark Creek Inn in Marin County. This genuine American chef from the Midwest has never been better than in this straightforward, honest, and splendid homage to American Cuisine."


Colman Andrews, editorial director,
“We want our holiday meals to turn out perfectly, and I can't think of a more practiced and trustworthy guide to easy, satisfying, successful special-occasion cooking than Bradley Ogden — one of the original "new American" chefs, and still one of the best.”
Library Journal,  Katie Dunneback, Bettendorf Public Library, IA  Sep 15, 2011
In his introduction, Ogden (Bradley Ogden's Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) addresses why he has added to the abundance of holiday-themed cookbooks. His reasoning is sound in that he clearly expresses an appreciation for "farm fresh" produce and offers up sophisticated recipes for the adventurous home cook. Broken up into sections on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's, the recipes take center stage and are followed by suggested menus and preparation schedules. The especially helpful "Special Note" sections offer tips on identifying fruits and vegetables, and one even tackles hangover remedies. The book is finished off with a coda on warm-weather holiday meals. Home cooks looking to take their dinners and parties to the next level will appreciate this collection.
Personal Favorites: Chive-Onion Popovers with Toasted Cardamom requires a certain mastery of technique, but the dish is simple and delicious. And the Grilled Marinated Flank Steak with Spiced Plum Barbecue Sauce is a sure-fire year-round favorite, with a sauce that is just outside of the ordinary.

Format: Hardcover
Bradley Ogden presents his versions of several holiday dinners. They are very elegant, but in many ways not that much different from what most prepare or that are in other cookbooks.

The dinners are for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years and have 8 recipes for warm weather holidays. He has information included on subjects such as setting a holiday table; but no real illustrations on placement of silverware, or plates, which would have been better than the close-up photo of stacked china and a crystal goblet.

The recipes are elegant, not simple, but a bit different. There are 57 recipes for Thanksgiving ranging from apple juice with cranberry and ginger to turkey or chicken stock, with recipes for sole and lamb and ham and turkey.

Christmas has 58 recipes including eggnog, caviar potato puffs, and red onion and parmesan crackers,and Kahlua sabayon. The cinnamon bread with brown sugar swirl is really wonderful and if you've made bread before, is a snap to make. There are menus for various combinations of recipes and preparation schedules.

New Year's contains 37 recipes, including ones for various drinks, desserts and main dishes.
Some pictures of the recipes are included, but they are mostly close ups, not really giving a comprehensive picture of the whole dish. An index is included.

This would be suitable for someone who wants some very elegant meals to fix for a gourmet, instead of a traditional holiday celebration.

I just met Chef Ogden last month for the first time. I love his food! He has an amazing ability at combining flavors we know and love to create a taste/texture explosion in the mouth! These "holiday dinners" are not all holiday only. Most of the recipes can be used for anytime... I highly recommend this book!

Bradley Ogden's recipes are complex but not daunting. The results, from the turkey, potatoes, gravy and sauces, to the desserts are beyond amazing. And the eggnog - it is to die for.
