New York Christmas: Recipes and Stories
A getaway to the magical New York of the pre-Christmas period: when coloured lights decorate the buildings, Jingle Bells rings out everywhere and culinary delicacies tempt you to indulge. Who doesn't dream of strolling down a snowy 5th Avenue, ice-skating around the imposing Christmas tree outside the Rockerfeller Center and to cap it off, enjoying a delicious slice of pumpkin pie in one of the inviting cafes? with around 50 recipes for Blueberry Brownies, Maple Glazed Ham and an unforgettable cheesecake, this cookbook allows you to share the dream of a White Christmas in your own kitchen. Interwoven throughout are three beautiful Christmas themed stories, so you can read yourself into the spirit of Christmas - Paul Auster's Auggie Wren's Christmas Story, The Gift of the Magi by O.Henry and Virginia O'Hanlon's Is There a Santa Claus? Each of the three stories has, in its own way, become part of popular Christmas folklore in the United States.
