I thought this one was interesting. I liked the stories behind the recipes and the mix of recipes included. It was a nice mix of holiday fun with good food. I can't wait to cook up a holiday fun feast.

This cookbook was a fun read but realistically there were not many recipes in it that I would try. A few like pecan pancakes and skewed ka bobs I had already tried and like a lot. 3 stars only for this book

Lots of weird sounding stuff w/ odd ingredients that seem like they'd be hard to find. Did find one yummy breakfast recipe.
Interesting facts about food from each country and their Christmas traditions. Some recipes were more appealing than others.
