Best of Bridge Holiday Classics: 225 Recipes for Special Occasions (The Best of Bridge)
Finally – a spiral bound cook-book with large print and clearly outlined recipes where the pages lay flat and allow the busy gourmand easy reading. This collection of holiday recipes is the latest addition to the Best of Bridge recipe series which emphasizes holiday preparations and treats. Following their mottos of “simple recipes with gourmet results,” the inclusions from casual to festive will tickle the taste buds.
Recipes are included for buffet parties, brunches, traditional holiday meals, and special Christmas and New Year’s Eve banquets, and includes dishes for the vegetarians at the table. Unfortunately, no gluten-free instructions are included. Especially nice for this festive season are the sections on desserts, cookies, and food gifts. I especially want to try the Tiger Butter made with melted white and dark chocolate mixed with peanut butter. Variations of many of these recipes can be found in other cookery books, but it is nice to have a concentrated holiday collection at hand. While the pages are filled with many colored illustrations of the completed cuisines, the harsh brassy colors of the illustrations diminish the attractiveness of the recipes.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
