The History of Christmas Food and Feasts

A celebration of Yuletide food through the centuries.
 
This mouthwatering book celebrates classic Christmas stories and their food and feasts. Each chapter covers a different era and the important foodie tales of time, including Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Jane Austen’s festive celebrations, and Christmas with Dickens. Claire Hopley rediscovers the joys of literary Christmases and the meals enjoyed by classic characters, including Harry Potter’s Christmas at Hogwarts with its impressive display of food, his first-ever feast after years of being neglected, and the Grinch’s failed attempt to ruin Christmas by stealing the Who-pudding in Dr. Suess’s children’s tale How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
 
With 40 must-try Christmas recipes, including a pork pie inspired by the one Pip gave to Magwitch in Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations, a Christmas Pudding recipe like those described in Anthony Trollope’s Orley Farm, as well as a turkey curry based on Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones’s Diary, this book is the perfect gift for people who love Christmas, its traditions, and its foods, as well as a must-buy book for foodie booklovers who want to know more about Christmas feasts in their favorite tales.
