Holiday season means more food, which invariably means cooking a whole lot more – because nobody likes microwave dinner or takeaway on a Christmas eve. That said, not everybody is well-equipped with good culinary skills or have top notch traditional holiday recipes up their sleeves, which is precisely where cookbooks come in! I know I know, it’s all available on the Internet, but what’s the fun in that? Also, celebrity cookbooks do demand a certain price even if you want the digital version, so why not do it the old-school way this holiday season and gift these cookbooks to your loved ones?
Packed with a list of delicious feast recipes followed by a few to pep up your dessert and high tea as well, Oliver’s cookbook is not for the waist-watchers or health conscious.

Alton Brown gives his latest literary venture a personal touch by sharing with readers recipes that are close to him. Also, he refrains from venturing into fancy ish and instead pens down glutinous and delicious comfort food. “Nobody wakes up in the middle of the night craving soy sauce spheres.
