'A joy to immerse oneself in' Andi Oliver

'In the field of food history, Annie Gray leads the pack' Jay Rayner

For many people Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a turkey and trimmings, pudding and brandy butter. And yet it wasn't always that way. Gone are the gluttonous banquets featuring boar's head and brawn – but how did we get to the Christmas food of today?

Historian Annie Gray digs into the evolution of our festive meal, from the birth of the twelve-day celebration under Edward I and the the restoration of holiday splendour under Victoria to the present day. Organised by festive dish and illustrated throughout, At Christmas We Feast is a delectable trip through time – stuffed full of classic recipes, doused with history and tradition, and sprinkled with the joy of the feasts of Christmas past.
