New Cook Books

When it comes to cooking, my loyalty is pretty much split two ways between Ina Garten and the British cookbook author Delia Smith. Imagine my delight in finding out that they each have a new cookbook.

First lets talk about Happy Christmas which I have already bought because I am a firm believer that it's never too early to start thinking about Christmas menus!

Delia's Happy Christmas

I have her original Christmas book from the early 1990's, because I'm so old, and have used it faithfully for many, many years.

This updated version includes all the old favorites, plus many new recipes that I can't wait to try.

One of the best is for a Chocolate Truffle Torte that uses liquid glucose. When the last book was released so many of us Brits watched her show, bought the book and made that dessert that England sold out of Liquid Glucose!

Ina's new book will be released in October and I'm sure will be as much loved as her others.

Both books are available on amazon.


  1. I adore Ina and have most of her books. I've never heard of Delia {or liquid glucose} but now I'm curious as to what I'm missing out on.
