Author information

Delia Smith is Britain's bestselling cookery writer, whose books have sold over 21 million copies worldwide. Delia's first job as a cookery writer was for the Daily Mirror in 1969 - numerous phenomenal best sellers and television series followed including Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course in 1978 and Delia's Christmas, Summer & Winter Collections in the 1990s. Towards the end of the decade Delia commenced work on a new major project - Delia's How to Cook, publishing three separate volumes and the accompanying TV series. The Vegetarian Collection and The Delia Collection followed. After a five year break concentrating on Norwich City Football Club (where she is a director) and Canary Catering, Delia returned triumphant in 2008 with a new BBC TV series and the fastest selling cookery book of all time 'Delia's How to Cheat at Cooking' - which sold over 800,000 copies. Delia is married to the writer and editor, Michael Wynn Jones. They live in Suffolk.

Editorial reviews

This book endeavours to take the stress out of preparing food over the festive period and the 36-hour countdown to Christmas does prevent a lot of last-minute panicking. And, as Delia points out, 'unless you are superhuman' everybody could do with some sound advice on how to succeed on one of the most difficult, and most memorable, meals of the year. She even gives you some shopping lists, a choice of three full exotic vegetarian menus, and ideas on how to use up those leftovers. Both the traditional and unusual are here; of special interest are the fantastic sweets like Mulled Wine Sorbet, Caramelised Orange Trifle, Irish Coffee Pudding and Cinnamon Ice Cream - no more chewing through dry Christmas pudding!
