The Swedish Table Christmas : Traditional Holiday Meals, Side Dishes, Candies and Drinks by Jens Linder and Johanna Westman

Are you still planning your Christmas menu? Do you need recipes for a Glogg party? 

This charming book is by two self confessed "Christmas nerds" whose "passion for food reaches its devoted, joyful peak every month of December when gluttony and revelry are socially acceptable and the spirit of tradition is strong."

In this book you will find both traditional and modern recipes interspersed with beautiful Christmas themed collages and photographs. So if  you need a recipe for Gingerbread, molten chocolate, root vegetable salad or new ways with duck, turkey and fish try this book. I must say though, I will be giving the Baked fillet of Reindeer with Bleu Cheese a miss. What would Rudolph think!

The Swedish Christmas Table can be borrowed for free from our eBook collection by library members.

As one of Australia’s most recognisable and best-loved home cooks and a busy mum, nobody understands better than Julie Goodwin the effort, time and expense involved in putting dinner on the family table every night; not to mention having to come up with new ideas that will keep the family interested.

Her new book 20/20 Meals is a revolution in home cooking - designed to keep dinners simple, wallet-friendly and delicious at the same time. Julie brings to her cookbooks a warmth and personality that is distinctly Australian and is all about bringing people together over a wholesome meal.

“I am really excited about this new book and can’t wait to share a new collection of my family-friendly recipes,” she said.

Join Julie in proving that good, healthy family meals can be made fast and affordable. Julie will help you arrange your kitchen, get those key staples into the pantry, organise the third drawer and then it’s up to you to follow her healthy, tasty and quick recipes.

Since becoming Australia's first MasterChef, Central Coast mum of three Julie Goodwin has become a household name. Formerly an IT professional running a successful family business, she now writes a monthly column for The Australian Women's Weekly, is a bestselling cookbook author and appears weekly on the Today Show on Channel 9.
