This collection of warming recipes will help stave off winter’s chill and keep you warm the whole season through.

On a cold day a steaming bowl of soup is always welcome. Soups and Snacks features hearty recipes such as Slow-cooked Onion and Cider Soup; and Parsnip, Chorizo and Chestnut Soup. When it’s freezing outside, what we naturally crave is warm, comforting food. In Supper Dishes you’ll find plenty of quick-to-prepare dishes including Taleggio and Potato Tortilla; Sage Pork Chops with Kale Colcannon; and Sausages with Celeriac Rösti. What better way to spend a chilly afternoon than preparing a casserole that can then slow-cook in time for dinner. One-pot Wonders is full of great ideas. Try a Smoky Hotpot of Great Northern Beans; a Classic Lamb Tagine with Almonds, Prunes and Apricots; or Boeuf Bourguignon. Roasts are perfect for weekly family get-togethers and seasonal celebrations. Foolproof recipes include Roast Beef with Winter Vegetables and Garlic Crème; Roast Turkey with Lemon and Herb Stuffing; and Roast Pork with Apple and Fennel Puddings. Sides and Salads complete any meal. Choose from Baked Spinach Mornay or Savoy Cabbage with Bacon and Cream; or try a crisp winter salad, such as Endive, Pear and Gorgonzola Salad. Whether you enjoy a slice of cake in front of the fire or an indulgent dessert, there are plenty of delicious treats to choose from in Bakes and Desserts. Try Sticky Marzipan and Cherry Loaf or Mulled Winter Fruit Crumble. Finally, in Drinks there are plenty of ideas for relaxing at home or seasonal entertaining. Enjoy a soothing Malted Milk or Mocha Maple Coffee or something a little more warming like an Egg Nog or Hot Rum and Cider Punch, guaranteed to get any holiday gathering off to a flying start.

A fire is crackling merrily in the fireplace as I type, and the weather is perfect for this book today! Even the title of this beautiful cookbook makes you feel cozy. Leek and Potato Soup, Slow-Cooked Onion and Cider Soup with Gruyere Toasts, Baked Mushrooms with Manchego Bechamel, Chunky Fish Stew with Cheese Toasts, Winter Vegetable Gratin, Coq au Vin, Toasted Teacakes, Baked Apples....my mouth is watering and I'm in the mood for comfort food! I was slightly surprised there wasn't a Beef Stew recipe included, just Boeuf Bourguignon. Boeuf Bourguignon is great, but sometimes just a simple, hearty beef stew with lots of vegetables and a nice, thick broth is perfect for those cold nights in front of a warm fire. This oversight caused the book to almost seem to have a hole in it for me, like a page was missing or something. My girls and I have started "Tea and Tales" once or twice a month on a Friday to discuss a book we're reading together. I think "Toasted Teacakes" will be the perfect accompaniment to our tea for our first meeting today! This is a beautiful book with gorgeous photos and scrumptious recipes to get us through the fall and winter months. I highly recommend it! I received a copy of this book from Ryland, Peters & Small and CICO Books for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
