Jonathan Ross & Christmass recipes, two books at the right time!

Why Do I Say These Things? – Jonathan Ross

Irreverent, tangential, witty and outrageous, Jonathan Ross is our best-known television personality for good reason and his take on growing up, and the world around him, is laugh-out-loud funny. With stories that range from discovering B-movies to fashion, from diets to childhood sweetshops, favourite presents and from sex to pets (and back to sex) he explores everyday life with all his customary energy, lasciviousness, self-deprecatory humour and random meandering, revealing that in short trousers he was as irrepressibly exuberant as he is now in those suits...


Nigella Christmas: Food, Family, Friends, Festivities – Nigella Lawson

Nigella Christmas comprises reliable, practical, easy-to-follow recipes and reassuring advice about planning and cooking ahead, presented in a gorgeous glittering package which will make this the ultimate gift for yourself and for family and friends, illustrated with 150 fabulous full-colour photographs by Lis Parsons. It includes everything from Christmas cakes and puddings, to quick and easy homemade presents (biscuits, preserves and other standbys), recipes for feeding friends and family over the holiday season with minimum stress and maximum enjoyment (cook and freeze ahead or slow-cook in the oven), as well as Christmas party food and drinks. And, of course, exciting and inspiring variations for the Main Event itself - from traditional turkey, festive ginger-baked ham and special trimmings to a Swedish Christmas a la Nigella, or a vegetarian Christmas feast. Nigella Christmas will surely be a perennial favourite, the book we will all reach for - for inspiration and reassurance - as soon as the Christmas lights start going up.
