Finally a spiral bound cook-book with large print and clearly outlined recipes where the pages lay flat and allow the busy gourmand easy reading. This collection of holiday recipes is the latest addition to the Best of Bridge recipe series which emphasizes holiday preparations and treats. Following their mottoes of ‘simple recipes with gourmet results” the inclusions from casual to festive will tickle the taste buds. Recipes are included for buffet parties, brunches, traditional holiday meals, special Christmas and New Year’s Eve banquets and includes dishes for the vegetarians at the table. Unfortunately, no gluten-free instructions are included. Especially nice for this festive season are the sections on desserts, cookies, and food gifts. I especially want to try the Tiger Butter made with melted white and dark chocolate mixed with peanut butter. Variations of many of these recipes can be found in other cookery books, but it is nice to have a concentrated holiday collection at hand. While the pages are filled with many colored illustrations of the completed cuisines, the harsh brassy colors of the illustrations diminish the attractiveness of the recipes.
Classic, nostalgic recipes fill this cookbook. The hardcover, spiral binding is a nice touch. Enjoy classics like Artichoke Dip, Green Goddess Salad, Poached Salmon, Christmas Cheese Balls, Shortbread, Ceasar Salad, Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding. Whether you are cooking for a Holiday Brunch, Cocktail Party, Buffet, Potluck, Sit-Down Dinner or just using up leftovers, you are sure to find something here. I used the Cranberry Muffin recipe substituting milk for the orange juice and Chopped strawberries for the cranberries. My kids demolished them! The cookbook ends with a section on Food Gifts. This is a lovely chapter of Candied Almonds, Spiced Pecans, Cranberry Pistachio Bark, Toffee, Marmalade, Chutney and more. The "Novel Nuts" were a huge hit at the family Christmas dinner!This is a great, nostalgic cook that is great fun to read through and to cook from.I received a copy of this cookbook from Robert Rose, Inc. for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
When a group of ladies gets together for bridge, it’s always a great time to bring delicious food and swap recipes. These ladies turned their favorites into a cookbook. The food in it reminds me of the foods I ate as a child at family and church get-togethers. The ladies’ motto is “Simple recipes with gourmet results” and I can tell these are the kind of recipes that are hard to make them wrong. It also has a lay-flat binding and large text which makes it really easy to see and read while cooking. I had turkey left over from Thanksgiving so I made the Quick Turkey Curry, which their addition of mango chutney made it really good. Since it’s holiday time, I also made the Good Old-Fashioned Gingerbread which was baked in a loaf pan. I sliced it and topped it with a lemon sauce and whipped cream, yum! Lots of good recipes and I also really enjoyed their fun and funny sayings that are the end of each recipe!
We love this cookbook! It's filled with recipes you need for holiday entertaining. This cookbook is great because it has tried and true recipes that will be a lifesaver come holiday time when you simply don't have time to test out recipes. I already have tried a few recipes ( Pomegranate and Feta Salad...amazing) and I'm hooked! It will be my go-to book this holiday season.
