Maggie's Christmas

Stuck for ideas for what to buy your favourite foodie friend for Christmas? Well our most loved celebrity chef, Maggie Beer, has released a Christmas cook book!

Here is a synopsis from Maggie’s Christmas :

Christmas is Maggie Beer’s favourite time of year, a time for everything she loves – for hugs from the grandchildren, for giving, and for creating special memories. But most of all, it is a time for family and friends to gather around a table groaning with delicious food. With her hallmark generosity and warmth, Maggie invites you to join her Christmas celebrations in South Australia’s beautiful Barossa Valley. From roasting the perfect turkey and transforming leftovers into fabulous meals, to turning ripe summer fruits into luscious desserts and creating a glamorous formal dinner to welcome in the New Year in style, Maggie shares her most cherished recipes. With plenty of advice for stress-free entertaining, Maggie shows you how to celebrate this special time of year with panache and joy.’I have never lost the excitement of Christmas and all it entails. From by earliest memories, it’s always been about celebrating the season and the pleasures of a bountiful table with family and friends. In sharing the recipes and rituals that make this such a special time of year for me, I hope to inspire you to create your own traditions.’

Bookworld has this wonderful full colour cookbook available for $37.99.

Here are a couple of teasers for what you can find inside this book (click on the image to see full size)… I’d love to try the Blue Swimmer crab omelette myself!
