Delia's Christmas Stollen
One of the hidden gems of Christmas cooking.
'It’s a fruited yeast bread called stollen, filled with marzipan in the centre. It’s an essential part of Christmas all over Germany, Austria and parts of France and we think its a real treat to serve this for breakfast over the Christmas holidays,' Delia Smith
Even if you don't get a chance to visit the famed Christmas markets of Germany, this glühwein (meaning 'glow-wine') will at least take you there in the metaphorical sense with its Yuletide flavours.
'With cinnamon, orange, cloves and a full-bodied red - you'll know it's Christmas when you have a glühwein'
Indulge in these classic Christmas treats from Italy. We've made the panettone a bit more accessible as an individual size and jazzed up our semifreddo with cranberries and limoncello. Certosino is a traditional Christmas cake from Bologna.
