This collection of delicious recipes will help stave off winter's chill. 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. Or try a toasted Welsh Rarebit, oozing with melted cheese. When it's freezing outside, what we crave is warm, comforting food. In Dinner Dishes you'll find quick-to-prepare recipes including Taleggio and Potato Tortilla; Spaghetti with Broccoli, Walnuts, and Ricotta; and Sausages with Winter Rosti. 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; Root Vegetable Ragu with Spiced Couscous; or Beef and Carrot Casserole with Dumplings. Roasts are perfect for weekly family get-togethers and seasonal celebrations. Fool-proof recipes include Traditional Roast Turkey; Roast Beef with all the Trimmings; and Rolled Crackly Pork with Sage and Onion Stuffing. Sides and Salads complete any meal--choose from Winter Vegetable Gratin and Baked Spinach Mornay 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 treats to choose from in Bakes and Desserts. Try Sticky Marzipan and Cherry Loaf; Baked Apples with Butterscotch; or Gooseberry and Ginger Wine Crumble. Finally, in Drinks there are plenty of ideas for relaxing at home or entertaining. Enjoy a soothing Malted Milk or Mocha Maple Coffee or something a little more warming like an Orange-mulled Wine or Hot Buttered Rum, ideal at a holiday party.
