Award-winning British chef Gizzi Erskine has a new collection of recipes out to see you through the holiday cooking season (and then some!) While American and British holiday fare can differ greatly, rest assured that you’re in excellent hands. This spiced pineapple Christmas ham will delight your guests year after year.

The Christmas ham. I love it so much. I’ve written numerous ham recipes in my time – mango-glazed, pomegranate-glazed – if it’s got the combo of sweetness, tartness and spice it’s going to be a winner. This recipe uses pineapple, and the tartness outweighs its sweetness. I think it cuts through the ham in the most brilliant way.
