Delia has long been the person we turn to for stress-free Christmas celebrations. This year, she celebrates 40 years of writing recipes and brings you Delia's Happy Christmas - the definitive guide to Christmas food.

This cookbook will help you to plan your Christmas festivities to the very last culinary detail, acting as an invaluable Christmas organiser from reminding you to make your Christmas pudding and chutneys in November to giving you a crucial countdown for the Last 36 Hours.

Delia's Happy Christmas will give you 150 recipes, including 100 new recipes and 50 much-loved classics, plus menu plans and shopping lists, illustrated with glorious full-colour photography. There are recipes for all your favourite traditional dishes - Delia's Classic Christmas Cake recipe has been in print for over 40 years and has never been bettered, but Delia has also created a Chestnut Cupcakes recipe to satisfy modern tastes. Of course there is Delia's foolproof recipe for a Traditional Roast Turkey and all the trimmings, and The Only Traditional Christmas Pudding as well as ideas for parties, boxing-day suppers, vegetarian feasts and what to do with leftovers.

Organisation is the key to success. If you follow Delia's Christmas calendar, you will be sure to create a very special Christmas. And even if you don't, there is always Delia's The Last-Minute Christmas - a chapter for those who leave things to the eleventh hour.

Everyone needs Delia at Christmas.

A lovely book, lavishly photographed. The food looks wonderful but I wish she wasn't so specific in recommending brand names of products not available outside the UK - some suggested substitutions would make it more internationally friendly. Lots of planning tips to make the Christmas season go a little smoother for the cook!

Fantastic recipes in a calm, collected tone. Excellent help for planning meals throughout the festive season, and for timing Christmas dinner so everything's ready at the same time.
