FORE W ORD
One of my abiding childhood memories was the digging up and bringing in of the
Christmas tree (this was in the days before the roots wer e habitually cut off ). It
would later be replanted in a gr ove of past holiday trees at the end of the kitchen
garden. Of course, in those days, Christmas did not begin until December—late in
December—but when it did, it was the most wonderful time of the year .
W e made five Christmas specials for Downton Abbey , each a feature-length
episode with its own stor y arc. They all contained cr ucial plot points for the overall
stor y but also allowed us to meet new , sometimes one-off characters and experience
the wider world of Downton. Some will remember them best for such momen-
tous events as Matthew ’ s snowbound proposal to Mary ; the bir th of Matthew and
Mar y ’ s son, George; or Matthew ’ s death. Others will remember the release of Anna
from prison and her reunion with Bates; the bir th of Edith ’ s daughter , Mar igold;
or the departure of T om and Sy bbie for America. But around these deeply moving
scenes we also see the future Edwar d VIII saved from scandal, we shoot grouse in
the Highlands, and we dance with the bright, young things in the beautifully lit
ballrooms of the London season.
Christmas would be nothing without its food, of course, and indeed its dr ink.
F lemish food writer and culinar y historian Regula Ysewijn has brought to life not
only the dishes of the Downton era but also some of the magnificent edible delights
of earlier centur ies. It is a brilliantl y resear ched book full of tasty treats. I do hope
you enjo y it.

A DE L ICIOUSL Y
DIFFE RE NT CHRIST MAS
Christmas may be a wonderful time of the year , but it’ s also one of the most nostalgic.
It ’ s easy to belie ve that Christmas has never changed—that we’ve always eaten
turkey and roast potatoes, Br ussels sprouts and plum pudding, mince pies and
Christmas cake. But I suspect that if you aren ’ t British, you will be frowning even
reading these words.
Ever y countr y , ever y family has its own way of celebrating Chr istmas. One
family ’ s sacr osanct tradition is another’ s worst nightmare . The Br itish love of dark,
fruit y flavors goes back to the medieval period, but even in Britain, more and more
people are turning to cheesecake or chocolate to end their yuletide feast. T raditions
change, and it turns out that even Christmas hasn ’ t always been the same.
In The Official Downt on Abbey Cookbook , I showcased some of the popular dishes
from 1912 to 1930. Those who are familiar with the book will know that the food
of the era can be ver y different from that of today , but that ultimately , good r ecipes
stand the test of time.
This is a beautiful book that goes beyond the expected foods of Christmas to
show us delights we’ve long forgotten. Regula’ s customar y combination of solid
research and gastr onomic flair has unearthed a wor ld of often sur prising recipes
seen through the lens of Downt on Abbey . Y ou’ ll discover such delights as the W hitby
cake, which the Dowager Countess would have remembered but which would hav e
been virtuall y unknown to her granddaughters, and the delicious hackin pudding, a
holiday tradition of northern England.
F or me, Christmas wouldn ’ t be Christmas without a Boxing Day breakfast of
fried plum pudding and bacon. F or the Crawleys and their staff, it would be noth-
ing without a bowl of steaming punch. As for you, I’ m sure this book will giv e you
something deliciously Downton to add to your own traditions.
