"This epic book is the culmination of seventeen years' work fine-tuning the ultimate in amazing recipes, tricks, and tips that will deliver for you at home, every time. I'll only do this book once, so I've made sure it's the best it can be. it would be a real honor for me to think that it will become part of your festive routine--supporting you, holding your hand, reassuring you, and guiding you to a really scrumptious Christmas. I hope you'll come back to it year after year.

I've got all the bases covered with everything you need for the big day and any feasting meals over the festive period, as well as party fare, edible gifts, treats, cocktails and of course, exciting ways to embrace and celebrate those leftovers. You'll also find all the deeply important technical info you need, such as cooking charts, and wherever possible, I've designed the recipes to be cooked at the same oven temperature, so you can be efficient with time and oven space, and it'll be super-easy for you to mix and match the different elements and build your own perfect Christmas meal.

I haven't held back. This book is the greatest hits, all wrapped up in one Christmas parcel, and I hope you have fun looking through, picking your recipes, and building your own plan.

Happy Christmas to you and yours, from me and mine." --Jamie Oliver

Admittedly, this is presented as a cookbook for special holiday meals, but I think most of the recipes are beyond what someone would prepare if not holding a formal dinner party. It is well organized and nicely illustrated though. I was a little surprised that his trifle recipe contained jello and not traditional English custard made from scratch (super easy) or worse from custard powder.

Super fancy; the pictures look great. He goes into a lot of detail on preparing a variety of meats. There are a lot of dishes and pretty much every one has a picture. The recipes are divided into sections like appetizers, meats, pastas, vegetarian, potatoes, salads, desserts, etc. I thought the 4 brussel sprout recipes looked good as well as the 4 flavored butters, but I wouldn't attempt much else from this collection unless I'm feeling extremely competent and want to try to make my own pasta dough and ragu sauce for homemade raviolis. Altogether, the book is quite large; there are two bookmark ribbons attached.
