The inspired Italian Christmas by Nigella, in tonight’s Christmas special when she throws a Nigellissima buffet party inspired by Venice.

It is off to the magical city of Venice to soak up the atmosphere and gain inspiration for dishes for a Christmas party with her Italian twist. It is a hard life for Nigella!

The book Nigellissima is wonderful, read about Nigellissima  – reviews and book information.

Returning home she creates a tasty buffet, including a Venetian cocktail with canapes that include Parmesan shortbreads and panettone stuffing squares.

Recipes include a crisp radicchio  “Renaissance salad”, Nigella’s Italian take on the traditional roast bird is to use turkey breast stuffing made from Italian sausages and cranberries steeped in Marsala and desserts include a marshmallow cappuccino pavlova using espresso powder and a Christmas pudding cake adorned with chocolate chips and pomegranate seeds.

Bill Granger Easy

Bill Granger Easy and 10 free recipes

100 strong and laidback recipes from the easy going chef, Bill Granger. View details of the book – Bill Granger Easy. Also a free Kindle edition Discover Bill Granger: 10 Delicious, Taster Recipes from ‘Easy’.

The most important comment made by Bill in his introduction – relates to the fast pace of life – yet the need for relationships – and how food and cooking can bring these seemingly incompatable environments together in a wonderful and meaningful way.

The essesnce of this blog is to help promote family time together, cooking, baking and eating. So we agree whole heartedly with these sentiments.

The cookbook is subdivided into food type -sections, piece of chicken, slab of steak, leg of lamb etc.

Within each section Bill provides a number of recipes that can be prepared from the food type.

Fish as a type can be cooked as –

  • baked fish with capers, potatoes and lemon
  • Spanish fish stew
  • yellow fish curry and cocnut rice
  • pan fried salmon with cucumber and lemon salsa
  • chunky fishcakes

An interesting approach that allows a cook to return to each food type from time to time, but a different style of recipe can be selected and prepared.

The cookbook is beautifully presented with amazing photography!

Comfort food with sausages, pastas, sphagetti, salads with chorizo, cumin and tomato rice.. wonderful fresh, healthy and the best of different countries, sometimes mixed – but always inventive.
