A magical culinary getaway: New York Christmas: Recipes and Stories takes you on a getaway to the magical New York of the pre-Christmas period when coloured lights decorate the buildings, Jingle Bells rings out everywhere and culinary delicacies tempt you to indulge. Who doesn't dream of strolling down a snowy 5th Avenue, ice-skating around the imposing Christmas tree outside the Rockerfeller Center and to cap it off, enjoying a delicious slice of pumpkin pie in an inviting cafe?
Live the dream of a White Christmas in New York: Authors Lisa Nieschlag, Lars Wentrup and photographer Julia Cawley have created a cookbook of recipes and Christmas stories from the Big Apple that takes readers on a winter trip to New York.
Christmas recipes and stories: Included among the fifty mouth watering recipes in New York Christmas are Blueberry Brownies, Maple Glazed Ham and an unforgettable cheesecake. Also included in the book are three beautiful Christmas-themed stories, so you can read yourself into the spirit of Christmas. Each of the three stories has, in its own way, become part of popular Christmas folklore in the United States:
*Paul Auster's Auggie Wren's Christmas Story
*The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry
*And, Virginia O'Hanlon's Is There a Santa Claus?
