The Book of the Season

Capturing over 310 years of the festive magic, Christmas & Other Winter Feasts gathers together everything you need to enjoy a truly delicious winter.

Excellence in food and drink always sits at the heart of Fortnum & Mason. Which is why self-confessed Fortnum’s devotee, informed foodie and acclaimed best-selling author, Tom Parker Bowles is perfectly placed to tell our second story – Christmas & Other Winter Feasts.

Our new cookbook doesn't cover Christmas alone. Not that we’d ignore the seasonal essentials, the Norfolk turkey and York ham, smoked salmon, sticky dates and Elvas plums. As if.


Winter feasting, though, is at the book’s heart, feasting in its every guise. We take you gliding through Somerset House and SKATE with a cheese-drenched, alpine-inspired smörgåsbord of fondues and tartiflette, before exploding into Guy Fawkes Night. Game, a British seasonal star, has its own section. There’s an entire chapter dedicated to Christmas baking, treats for Christmas Eve, and things to devour on Boxing Day too. Leftovers are given the Fortnum’s treatment, austere to revere.

It’s not all rich winter dishes either. January may be a time for a new start, and a rather lighter menu. But that doesn’t mean that flavour and joy have to be thrown out with the Christmas tree. It’s sure to be an instant favourite, a trustee kitchen staple, and a joyful source of inspiration for many years to come.

Christmas & Other Winter Feasts is entirely devoted to the pleasures of cooking and eating, and above all, a book about celebration. Eat, drink, and be merry.
