The original version of this, with just the recipes, was the first Sainsbury cookbook I bought in the late 70s, and I used it for years. This later expanded edition includes loads of suggestions for games, presents, planning timetables etc., and while it isn't quite as patronising as Delia Smith, this added material is a bit of a waste of space.

The recipes are excellent and fairly foolproof. There is a turkey stuffing with chestnut puree and pate which has become one of my standards. The starters and side dishes are innovative, especially considering the recipes are at least 25 years old. The desserts are simple but still make an impact. It's one of those books which helps you do a traditional Christmas, with variations if you want them, rather than focusing on the snazzier alternatives. ( )
