Take inspiration from Mary Berry this Christmas time when hosting for friends and families.This cookbook is packed with classic meal ideas ranging from salmon salsa verde en croute to mouth-watering bakes including lovely lemon soufflés.
Tuck into plant-based dishes this year. Vegan food is becoming ever more popular and this book has tantalising dishes full of flavour – from roasted nuts to cardamom buns and pulled jackfruit ‘pork’ and gingerbread biscuits.
Fancy tucking into something different this Christmas? Wok On has recipes for dumplings, curries, stir-fries and so much more from Asian countries including Hong Kong, Vietnam and Taiwain. All of the recipes use ingredients that are easy to find.
We all love watching The Great British Bake Off and this companion to the latest series will have you enjoying show-stoppers all over the festive season. It has tasty recipes for celebration cakes, traybakes and cupcakes.
Jamie Oliver shares drool-worthy vegetarian recipes for everyone in his latest cookbook. From suppers to weekend feasts, these hearty dishes will delight even the hungriest carnivore.
Ok, Christmas is the time to indulge but let’s not forget about the January diet that comes oh-so-shortly after… Kate Allinson and Kay Featherstone’s Pinch of Nom blog has helped millions lose weight while still eating the tastiest dishes and this book gives you the chance to work through 100 of them. You could even try one for that post-Boxing Day comedown when stodgy food is decidedly not on the menu.
Bake Off favourite Kim-Joy shares cute and creative bakes to make you smile in this brilliant baking book. She shares ideas for iced biscuit creatures, big occasion cakes, character macarons and meringues – and many are accompanied by feel-good messages!
