The Penguin Podcast: Christmas Special

Hello and Merry Christmas from everyone here at Penguin! We’ve got a very Christmassy themed episode with a big focus on food , so if you’re not hungry now you certainly will be by the end. There's a talk from Pen Vogler, publicist here at Penguin and co-Editor of the Great Food series. She’s going to be telling us all about the history of Christmas food and how things like turkeys and mince pies became associated with Christmas dinner. After that there's a brillantly funny extract from the audiobook edition of India Knight’s festive novel Comfort and Joy. If you've ever been to Oxford Street for some last minute christmas shopping you'll understand her pain. And lastly we have Juliet Annan, the Publishing Director of Fig Tree, reading a lovely recipe for blinis from Felicity Cloake’s Penguin Short, Perfect Christmas Day
