Part of the J Salmon booklets on British cooking this covers many traditional Christmas recipes that should have you thinking of a Dickensian holiday. With winter dishes that can be made all through the colder months

This book includes a mixture of sweet and savory dishes in no particular organization so you’ll need to hunt around but they include
Apple and prune stuffing
Mushroom sauce
Honey roasted turkey
Roast Goose
Marmalade glazed ham
Venison and chestnut casserole
Spiced beef (what Americans would call corned beef.)
Plum pudding (the tradition Xmas pudding)
Egg nog
Butter rum tarts
Trifle
Port wine jelly (not for the kiddies)
Chocolate log cake
Short bread
Various spice cakes and others.
The pictures are all of 1840’s revelers in carriages and snowy scenes and just waiting for Uncle Ebenezer to walk by.

I wouldn’t suggest you go all out with this as you’re holiday dinner but it certainly gives ideas for things to add to it, especially the baked good that can be done days in advance. And if you were curious about such classics as Trifle or exactly how to cook a goose if you spring for one of those instead of a turkey this year you are in good stead.

The recipes are easy to follow, each one being just a page and while there might be a slight problem in translation form the English (a dessert spoon of sugar comes to mind) this is easily sorted through and you find you have a lovely book to work with. At the low cost if you only like one or two of them it will be well worth the cost. The size and low cost of this also makes it a great stocking stuffer for the Anglophile cook you know.

Just received my "Favourite Christmas Recipes" and am very pleased with the selection of recipes. You can have a regular "Christmas Carol" feast out of this one small volume, starting with the "Christmas Goose", and winding up with the "Wassail Punch". The "White Christmas Candy" is a little weird here--this variation on Rice Krispies Treats seems a bit un-Dickensian. But I am looking forward to trying the "Crystallised Chestnuts" and "Carol Singing Pepper Cake". A fun & festive little book.

As a British ex-pat, I have been collecting these lovely little books every time I go back home to visit, and especially when I travel to places in Britain other than my home town. Each book is a selection of traditional recipes accompanied by lovely old pictures of country life in past times. I have used recipes from these books probably more than any other cookbooks I own, as they are so easy to use and bring back memories of my grandmothers cooking. I have about 20 of these tiny books at the present time, and am still collecting them.

This little book is great for someone who is planning a traditional English Christmas meal, there is something for everyone from traditional puddings to savory apple and prune stuffing. The directions are easy for the most part (some terms have to be looked up), but it is a lovely little book for a great price!
