Hot on the heels of his highly successful Chefs Eat Toasties Too, Darren Purchese is sharing his take on Christmas with us in his 2nd book in the Chefs…Too series. With Chefs Host Christmas Too there’s no need to be stressed about Christmas – at least not when it comes to hosting and feasting.

It’s time to play with Christmas – and we don’t mean having a starring role in a pageant, but being the star of your own show. The approach here is fresh, fun, lighthearted and accessible, with an enticing and cleverly put-together line up of Christmas greats, and new twists on how to prepare them.

Chefs Host Christmas Too includes everything you need to keep the throng fed and entertained during this festive time, including family favourites, all the chef tips and tricks, and new takes on some classic fare.

About the Author

British-born pastry chef Darren Purchese has won a loyal, enviable following over five years with his Sweet Studio Burch & Purchese, on Chapel Street in Melbourne. Darren has played a prominent role on MasterChef over successive years (he was responsible for the passionflower pressure test, one of the highest rating episodes in 2015). Together with wife Cath Claringbold, he has built a reputation for stunning feats of sugary deliciousness combining jellies, sponges, mousses, cream, crumbles and spreads.

Christmas in Australia 101


This is a fantastic book because it has handy hints about timelines and ingredients but most of all because it is about Christmas in Australia, so recipes and ingredients relate to our seasons and hot weather. He also includes suppliers for specialty ingredients, within the text. Contains all the quintessential Australian Christmas recipes. I loved it's simplicity, the easy to read layout and the authors down to earth approach. Great for home cooks. I'll be buying the rest of this series!

Basic - may suit beginners


I was disappointed with this book given that the author is a professional chef/baker. The recipes are basic and there's nothing new, inspirational or exciting for readers who are adventurous and experienced amateurs. While it may cater to basic home cooks who are not looking for something challenging, it's disappointing.
