Love, loveReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 November 2017
Love, love, love this book. It can't be classified as a recipe book; it's a history of winter traditions and facts, with interesting insights and memories from the author. Recipes are interspersed throughout in conjunction with an event or tradition, so that there's no disturbance to the flow of writing. I just couldn't put the book down and, having finished it, went back to the beginning and started to read it again. The book is the essence of winter and Christmas, with lots of interesting and unusual facts (I didn't know before reading it that tinsel's made in Wales!). My house will be filled with candles and branches this winter. If you are looking for something to revive the excitement of Christmas, this book is it.

This book is everything you want it to beReviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 March 2018
I bought this book for a night such as tonight, early March, I can't sleep and it is 3.30 am. The snow has gone now but oh how I love reading about it. Nigel Slater stirs my senses, so eloquent, so true. I always enjoy his programmes, the way he expresses himself, the way he shops and puts the various elements together. This book is fabulous and just what I need this Satnight/ Sunday morning. I shall move on now and be inspired with ideas for Sunday lunch. Nigel Slater never fails !!!!

A waste of moneyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 December 2018
This is such a pretentious and pointless book, how on earth did it get published? Included within its pages is the helpful advice on how to decorate a tree ‘the tree will be at its most splendid if the rest of the lights in the room are kept dimmed’ and how to decorate a wreath ‘the occasional slice of dried orange can look good, but they do bring a rather commercial look to the occasion’. If it was satire it would be funny, sadly I don’t think that was the intention. Dire.

This is the most beautiful, evocative and olfactory experienceReviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 December 2017
This is the most beautiful, evocative and olfactory experience! I am so happy that I bought this book as a gift to myself. It will last for years and from the first page throws you head first into the smells, senses and tastes of Winter and Christmas. Thank you Nigel Slater for making me fall in love again with Winter and Christmas :) This book shall come out every November and be a family heirloom!

Nostalgic and cosy and wonderful.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 November 2019
I got this a wee while ago and put it by til November with the intention of reading the segment for each day on that day. It's the18th of November and I'm away up in December purely because I'm enjoying it so much. I can hear Nigel Slater's voice in my head as I read so if you enjoy his programmes you'll probably enjoy this book. It's just a lovely way to immerse yourself in the season of winter and start prepping for Christmas. It's a kind of biographical recipe book that provides, for me anyway, a relaxing way of getting some me time (euch I hate that phrase too) while looking productive at the same time.
