With Christmas fast approaching, I am searching for something different to make that will maybe become a tradition in our house or maybe just be a fun conversation piece. Couple my love of cookbooks with this obsession to always have something new to cook, and I’m digging Santa’s North Pole Cookbook: Classic Christmas Recipes from Saint Nicholas Himself by Jeff Guinn.
The book is a small paperback that doesn’t just include recipes for unique Christmas dishes from around the world from the North Pole to Sweden to Ghana. I will fully admit that I would never make every recipe in this book, such as the Capitone Fritto from Italy (Festive Fried Eel) or Kutya from Poland (wheat porridge). I’m ok with that though because I never make any recipe in any cookbook I own. There are over 70 holiday recipes in this cookbook, plenty for anyone to find some they just can’t wait to try.
In the interest of full disclosure, I received a copy of this book for review. I was not otherwise compensated, and all opinions remain my own.
