  1. There are plenty of us who always think that food is one of the highlights of the holidays season. There are so many delicious tastes here.

    1. I couldn’t agree more, Claire! It’s not just about the taste, though. Food has this incredible ability to bring people together, too. Christmas wouldn’t be the same without those shared moments around the dining table.

  2. This year charcuterie has been my big new discovery. Would be good to finish the year with a class collection from Cratejoy.

  3. Perhaps next year you could do a Thanksgiving food and drink special?

    Our turkey was very disappointing. It would have been good to have known about Williams Sonoma back at the start of November.

  4. My family would love that box from D’Artagnan sometime over the holidays. We’re all big surf and turf fans.

  5. Over the years, I’ve learnt that a cheap Cranberry sauce, too thin and too sweet, can spoil a good Christmas dinner. I’ll definitely give New England’s colonial era recipe a go this year.

    1. I know what you mean, Lorraine. It’s important to get the right condiments to really round off the meal, I think. Wishing you a wonderful festive feast this Christmas!
