Format: Hardcover
Most recipes in this book are quite simple. They are all delicious and many can be used throughout the year especially for cold climates.
the Chocolate log is so easy and yummy. Can be served as a chocolate roulade any time of year and always be a hit!
Photographs are excellent and encourage you to try the recipes.
I have used mine for years and have suddenly misplaced it. I think somebody pinched it who heard me talk about it! hence, buying another.

Format: Hardcover
I am of Irish heritage and I love the holidays. I wanted to know about what was served in the Irish culture and this certainly helped me understand. Though not a big book by any stretch there is a variety of information and recipes to make the holidays interesting.
