Nigel Slater writes of his love for winter, the scent of fir and spruce, ghost stories read with a glass of sloe gin by the light of beeswax candles, their shadows dancing on the ceiling.

With recipes, decorations, fables and quick fireside suppers, The Christmas Chronicles covers everything from Bonfire Night, Christmas and New Year to Epiphany. Here are much-loved classics such as goose and turkey (and making the most of the leftovers), mincemeat and the cake; recipes to make the cold months bearable, like ribsticker bread pudding with Comte and Taleggio, salt crust potatoes with blue cheese and goat’s curd, and hot-smoked salmon, potatoes and dill; as well as bright flavours to welcome the new year, including pink grapefruit marmalade, pear and pickled radish salad and rye, linseed and treacle bread.

Packed with feasts, folktales, myths and memoir and all told in Nigel Slater’s warm and intimate signature style.
