Upcoming Christmas Cookbooks

One of the greatest joys of the holiday season is the chance to renew our many family and community traditions of cooking and sharing wonderful goodies from the kitchen. Here are some of the most interesting, and yummy sounding, holiday cookbooks coming out over the next couple of months...

I'm a sucker for the whole Victorian Christmas experience so I've already pre-ordered Charles Dickens - A Christmas Dinner. Elizabeth David's Christmas is a new American edition of food writer David's posthumous collection of Christmas related articles. I highly recommend it.

It goes without saying that I've already got my order in for Christmas Beer!

"The All-American Christmas Cookbook provides a state-by-state tour of America's favorite Christmas recipes from Alabama's Pecan Divinity to New York's Oyster Stew to Utah's Quick Peppermint Stick Cake. With classic regional recipes and beautiful vintage artwork from holidays past this cookbook will put everyone in the Christmas spirit from sea to shining sea."
