    I'm a big fan of Jamie Oliver. He's really down to earth and has a bit of charm. I started watching him many, many years ago with his first TV show on the BBC - The Naked Chef. I really liked him and have since watched many of his shows and checked out many of his cookbooks. I thought this one is fitting for the time of year. It's a huge book, with lots of different types of recipes. Crazy recipes (well, to me...such as turkey sloppy joes), traditional British recipes (yorkshire puddings, triffl I'm a big fan of Jamie Oliver. He's really down to earth and has a bit of charm.

I thought this one is fitting for the time of year. It's a huge book, with lots of different types of recipes. Crazy recipes (well, to me...such as turkey sloppy joes), traditional British recipes (yorkshire puddings, triffle, etc), and just some fun, inventive ones. Chapters include: Introduction Smart Starters The Main Event Veggie and Vegan Plates The Wonderful World of Potatoes Scrumptious Vegetables Gravy, Sauces and all the Trimmings Incredible Leftovers Spectacular Festive Puddings Afternoon Tea and Sweet Treats Cute Edible Gifts Super-Fantastic Salads Dips, Bites and Handheld Nibbles Perfect Christmas Drinks Guide To Roasting Meat There are so many different types of recipes from easy to complicated. A big dessert section which is a bonus for me. Lots and lots of drool worthy food porn, I think every recipe has a picture, even the gravy recipes. But I have to knock it a star as there are too many photos of him. (cookbook authors, please stop doing this) I doubt I would make much from this one...being vegan and all (lot of meat recipes). But I get ideas from it. I have a few I have marked to try and tweak a bit. I liked the food gift section as it's nice to give these types of gifts to the person who has everything. I plan on testing his hot cocoa mix to see if it rivals the one I make, but first I must figure out what the heck one of the ingredients is. Ha! A great one to checkout if you want to get some ideas for a huge, festive holiday meal, if you want inventive ways to re-use turkey, or you just want to see a bunch of gorgeous food photos.

    Great book, lovely recipes which are not difficult to make. This is a book which not only looks at Christmas day recipes but recipes for the whole of December. My only negative suggestion about the book, I had hoped for a spectacular Christmas Cake recipe. As Jamie is not a fan of CC, his recipe in this book leaves a lot to be desired. Great ideas and very nicely presented. Recommended.

    Very vibrant with tons of pictures and lots of enthusiasm. Only downside (as with his other books) is this man loves expensive and hard to find ingredients. But of course he has other books with more frugal menus.. but still a few tricky ads-ins. And you can't really be a beginner chef for this one. Some recipes don't have step by step instructions so a lot is assumed that you know what you're doing. Very vibrant with tons of pictures and lots of enthusiasm.

    I really like Jamie Oliver's Christmas cooking programmes, and watch the repeats on Food Network, so as soon as I saw this I knew I had to buy it. I did. It is filled with lots of great recipes, foodie gift ideas, and your starter kit to the "perfect" Christmas. Plus an amazing Hot Chocolate recipe.

    Borrowed from library and have already ordered it to keep. I can see me using recipes after Christmas and the vegetarian food looks delicious (which is very rare for Christmas food). The roasting meat guide in the back is worth getting it alone (and the drinks too!). Jamie does it again, a knockout.

    I really appreciate the way that Jamie is respectful to traditional English holiday cooking. So he does many traditional Christmas dishes but also throws in a more modern one which is OK. The fact that he appreciates the old will always compensate for any newfangled recipe.

    I absolutely love Jamie Oliver's Christmas cooking programmes, and watch repeats every year on Food Network. Every year I said to my husband that I wish Jamie Oliver would release a Christmas cookbook, so naturally as soon as I saw this on Amazon I preordered it in a flash. I'm not disappointed. This book is wonderful, filled with all the tv recipes and more. There's so much to love here- meat, cakes, potatoes, what to do with leftovers, that gravy he makes with Jools and the baby, the ice cream I absolutely love Jamie Oliver's Christmas cooking programmes, and watch repeats every year on Food Network.

I'm so pleased with this book and it was definitely worth the wait. Jamie has pride of place on my kitchen shelves once again, this time next to Nigella's Christmas and my grandma's old Delia Smith Christmas book.

    This book is pretty much what you would expect from Jamie Oliver. Some great recipes in here that I hadn't seen since my childhood. Accessible and not hard for the casual cook to achieve.

    I was so excited to find out that I won a signed copy (eeeeeeee!!!!!) of Jamie Oliver's Christmas Cookbook in a Goodreads giveaway! Jamie's been on the food scene for a long time, but, honestly, I am not particularly a "foodie" so my introduction to him was on Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution. I loved it, and liked his style, so I'm definitely a fan. I love this book. Visually, it is beautiful. The photos are amazing and festive and there are so many recipes I want to try.

I'll probably start with a potato dish to build my confidence - because there's a whole chapter for potato dishes! From "Smart Starters" to "Incredible Leftovers" and "Cute Edible Gifts," he's covered a lot in this book. It's a great source of information, tips and tricks - and the instructions are clear. His easy, conversational style comes through on every page, and I really think I COULD make any one of his recipes. I am thrilled to own this book because I certainly plan to use it not only this year, but for years to come.

    ".Baked bread sauce, and more." I have enjoyed Jamie Oliver's T.V. Programs since first he rode his scooter onto the screen in the Naked Chef, and bought the cookbooks, too. Whilst fun to read, these latter have always been a disappointment as far as the recipes are concerned. Now, with this Christmas book, he has provided good, basic instructions which produce the great tastes expected, inc!using veggie and vegan alternatives. Not I spirational, but a good working cookbook with fine illustrations ".Baked bread sauce, and more." I have enjoyed Jamie Oliver's T.V.

    I tried a few things starting with the bacon wrapped appetizer recipes. The first time by the time the bacon crisped, the cheese component was totally melted out. The second time I lightly pre cooked the bacon before wrapping, but he the cheese still melted out, though the bacon crisped in the allotted time. I generally like Jamie's taste combos, but I pect the recipes to be tested. Is he putting out too many books? The apple pie is marvellous. I froze it unbaked. Just double the baking time.

    *Review may change once I try a few of the recipes* This cookbook is a work of art full of vibrant pictures and beautifully laid out dishes. I like how each page has a corresponding picture next to the recipe. I like to see what I’ll be cooking. 😉 The only thing I’m worried about is finding some of the ingredients but other than that I love how large and thick the book is and the wide ranges of recipes. I especially can’t wait to make the Amalfi cake. * I won this in a Goodreads giveaway all opini *Review may change once I try a few of the recipes* This cookbook is a work of art full of vibrant pictures and beautifully laid out dishes.

    Probably far too basic and simple for those of us who have been preparing and cooking a traditional Christmas meal for longer than we care to remember. But beautifully produced and I did make a note of a few of the more unusual recipes to try out. Could do without the endless photos of Jamie and his family to be honest. At least the font is clear and minus the ridiculous curling Gothic script font that some cookery books seem to have adopted recently.

    I meant to read this about a month ago, and I’m definitely checking it out again next thanksgiving. From roasts to leftovers to gifts, Oliver makes it less intimidating and somehow fun. With full nutrition info. And tons of family pics that will put you right into the holiday spirit. You’ve got to check this out for holiday inspiration. Oliver and his team are probably my favorite cookbook authors, and they don’t disappoint here.

    A LOT of tasty sounding recipes. Many if not all had butter and oil in them. Many had coriander seeds, cumin, and chili powder, so they'll have a bit of kick. I only noticed the prevalence, because of household allergies. Nothing that can't be adjusted. There were a lot more recipes than I expected and a good number of them interested several family members, so we'll be trying them out. Beautiful photos of the item alongside each recipe. Looking forward to stretching my cooking skills. A LOT of tasty sounding recipes. Many if not all had butter and oil in them.

    Did not love this, did not hate it, it's just not my kind of Christmas. It seemed like he was competing with himself on how fancy he could get. This book is not for the Normal Chef. This book seems to be written for someone who has been to cooking school and has many advanced techniques. Would never buy this myself and I would never attempt to make anything from this.

    Not a bad cookbook, but I was a little dismayed by the number of specifically English ingredients, e.g., chestnut puree, prepared mincemeat It was *very* poorly laid out for the Kindle. The type was frequently too light; the ingredients were listed in a narrow left column and frequently spilled over to the next page; and the chart for roasting meat was completely unusable.

    Goodreads Giveaway winner. Beautiful book. Pictures for all recipes which is always appreciated. Recipes that will become holiday favorites yet lots that will be incorporated into menus all year round. Love the inventive tweaks that were made to classic recipes.

    There is a huge variety of recipes in this book. Lots of meat but a whole section for vegetarians and vegans too. Many recipes can be made year round. It really covers the traditional English Christmas dinner but much more as well. A perfect gift for the foodie in your life.

    I've enjoyed Jamie Oliver since his Naked Chef days... this holiday extravaganza collection has some gems. Worth paging through to get ideas - lots of more original leftover recipes, always appreciated. And his Best Roasted Potatoes - they ARE.

    So pleased I bought this for Christmas 2020. We’d always intended to spend Christmas Day at home this year. This book brought me so much joy and pleasure trying out new versions of my basic recipes, including the winter ragu. I’ll treasure using this as a staple Christmas go to for years to come.

    As ever with Jamie, these recipes actually work, and they are food that can be a bit special but can also cover all those meals over the festive season. Excellent veggie section, and a whole host of extras and treats, this has rapidly become one of our favourites.
