Well another break in posting, again due to illness in the family.  This time not me but my Mum.  So this one’s for you Mum – get better soon!

Judging by the food that’s in season in December, I think it’s fairly obvious that Christmas is on the way!

Fruit & Veg in season in December

Brussels Sprouts

White Cabbage


Whether you love them or hate them, brussels are part of Christmas! Honestly, I think people just assume they don’t like them because they’ve only had them boiled into submission.  Why not try them a different way – get some little baby brussels and chop them in half, then fry them with some smoked bacon lardons and some chopped chestnut.  Gorgeous – plus any leftovers will make a beautiful bubble & squeak!

Meat & Fish in season in December


If only there were some excuse to eat turkey this month….

December Foraging



Nuts are always very reminiscent of Christmas too.  Every year, I always find some at the bottom of my stocking, along with a satsuma or two.  Back at my parents home, there’s always a big bowl of nuts with a couple of old worn, nutcrackers, sitting by the fire and waiting for people to dip in and enjoy them.  The crackling of the fire and the cracking of nuts is a real sign of Christmas just around the corner.
