Armchair Cookery

I read a feature about Delia in a magazine and it mentioned that she had a new Christmas book. I love cookery books and Christmas cookery books are so inspiring. I can sit and study them for hours and just savour those gorgeous photographs!

I came across a copy of Happy Christmas for one third of the list price, so I decided to treat myself to a copy. I haven't had a lot of time to enjoy it, but I have left it out so that I can sit down and dip into it whenever I have a few minutes to spare.

Another favourite is Nigella Christmas. I saw her Christmas cookery programme of the same name on television last year and this book is beautiful. How I long to collect the reindeer crockery and have my own set to use at Christmas! This dream is a little impractical, as most of it is sold in the U.K. and the shipping is prohibitively expensive. No matter, I can dream and maybe one day I will stumble across a whole set of it...
