Nigella: At My Table: Christmas
Nigella: At My TableChristmas
Nigella decamps to the countryside for her cosiest Christmas yet. Against a backdrop of crackling log fires and sparkling lights, Nigella shares her tips for relaxed entertaining, bringing new flavours to the festivities and the cosiness of familiar fare.
Inspired by the beauty of her surroundings, Nigella throws a party, serving platters of devilled eggs and a sparkling cocktail. She creates a feast of roast duck with orange, soy and ginger, alongside garlic and parmesan mashed potato gratin and sour-sweet soused red cabbage with cranberries, made in advance to make life that little bit easier. There is also an exotic take on brussels sprouts.
For dessert, there is a glorious sticky toffee pudding, made all the more delicious with an effortless, no-churn brandy salted caramel ice cream. For a simple fireside supper, Nigella rustles up a warmly spiced Moroccan vegetable hotpot with a dill and pine nut couscous, and chocolate pistachio meringue cookies for a sweet after-dinner treat.
