Christmas with Gordon - Rosana McPhee from Hot and Chilli guest blogs for us…

Quadrille have released a very festive Christmas book by celebrity chef and TV presenter Gordon Ramsay. Deep red with white letters, the hardcover is glossy, and the book itself contains 141 pages filled with colour photographs by London based photographer Chris Terry. The book jacket has a portrait of Gordon Ramsay carving a turkey.

 

The book was written with the help of food stylist Emily Quah and is divided by chapters:
INTRODUCTION
PARTY FOOD
CHRISTMAS MENUS
BREAKFAST AND BRUNCH
LUNCHES AND SUPPERS
PUDDINGS
INDEX
The recipes are not overly complicated, I tried some of the recipes specially the side dishes. Easy to find ingredients, even though some ingredients are a bit expensive. However, it’s Christmas time so let’s indulge a bit.   A good variety and modern take on the traditional dishes.  This book is great addition to a food lovers book collection. I am looking forward to try the puddings recipes.

Pear and saffron chutney, truffle mash and creamed cabbage with thyme


I made the creamed cabbage at least three times in the last two weeks - simple and tasty. I lovethe piquancy and texture of the pear and saffron chutney so much, that I have made some to give as Christmas presents. It’s delicious - what a treat!  Another good suggestion for a Christmas present too.
