Cooking for Christmas - yes, it is only 15 weeks away!

New Zealand’s best-loved cooking-duo, Simon and Dame Alison Holst are
publishing their updated, revised and new look ‘Cooking for Christmas’  to be released to stores nationwide in September. The original publication has been out of print for two years but not before selling an incredible 38,000 copies!

Most of us remember fondly the traditional foods which our mothers and grandmothers produced each year. Simon and Alison are confident the recipes in this book will inspire the reader to cook their own Christmas meals and treats and enjoy the experience! Many of the foods can be made some time before
Christmas and there are great recipes for attractive food gifts to put under the Christmas tree.

“To Simon and me, Christmas means happy family gatherings, the exchange of pretty, gift wrapped packages beside a decorated tree, and food to be enjoyed with friends and family,” says Alison.

The recipes all carry the Holst trademarks—recipes you can rely on, easy to prepare and great tasting! Simon and Alison have written over 30 cookbooks together selling in excess of 1.9 million copies.

This great little book is packed with recipes including delicious, moist Christmas cakes, fabulous glazed ham, beautiful biscotti and biscuits, colourful Christmas pickles, fabulous fudges and other treats, traditional Christmas puddings and much much more
