A UK bestseller last year, this is a real charmer. A fall-into-winter collection of recipes, reflections on holidays, and ruminations by Slater, a man with a remarkable gift for finding simplicity, it offers a wealth of traditional holiday foods (hot-smoked fish and leek pie, roast turkey, plum pudding) and reinventions that fit very nicely right alongside: sweet potato and kale bubble and squeak; savory bread pudding with ham, Comté, and Taleggio; toasted mincemeat sandwiches).
If you’ve found you have trouble getting into the holiday groove recently, this is an excellent fix.
