Almost everyone has a favorite Christmas movie; and in most Christmas movies, there is plenty of food and drink. Anyone who wants to make their Christmas more festive while watching Christmas movies, will want to pick up The Christmas Movie Cookbook: Recipes from Your Favorite Holiday Films
Besides fun and enticing recipes from favorite Christmas movies, Rutland has included entertaining tips as well as menu suggestions. Most of the recipes are fairly quick and easy, and are written in the traditional manner – ingredients listed first with step-by-step instructions following - making them easy-to-follow for everyone, whether beginning or advanced cooks. There are beautiful photographs of most of the dishes, which helps cooks decide what to cook next.

The ingredients are available at any mainstream grocery store – nothing fancy or hard to find - and most of the recipes call for ingredients that we have on our pantry shelves or freezers now, so we can avoid a trip to the store. There are also several suggested holiday menus that will bring the dishes together for get-togethers and parties that can be enjoyed by families and friends.

While this isn’t an all-purpose cookbook, it’s a good holiday cookbook and would make a good gift for someone who cooks or someone who watches and enjoys a lot of Christmas movies. It’s a good addition for any cookbook collection.
