A Downton Abbey Christmas Cookbook is coming so fans will be able to live out their Crawley family festive fantasies.

The cookbook - which is released on 21st October 2020, but available to preorder now - contains historically accurate recipes from the Edwardian period that would be typically eaten at Christmas.

The coffee table hardback contains 85 traditional British recipes and they sound positively delish!

The 'Downton Abbey Christmas Cookbook' is out on October 21st (

Recipes range from soups (including Pheasant Soup) to fish and shellfish dishes (such as Baked John Dory and Rissoles of Salmon) and meat, game and roast dinners (including Duck with Orange, Lemon and Olives or Mutton Chops with Crispy Herb Crust - mmmm!).

There also sides and vegetables (like Stewed Figs and Stuffed Mushrooms), sauces (like Bread Sauce and Brandy Butter) and savouries (such as Anchovy Eclairs and Angels on Horseback).

Of course, Christmas wouldn't be complete without some delicious sweet treats and desserts too, including Plum, Fig and Wartime Christmas Puddings. There's even a range of festive drinks such as a classic Mulled Wine, English Punch and a Smoking Bishop cocktail.

We want to try all of these now!
