Everyone needs a good tried and tested rich fruit cake recipe up their sleeve. Whether you ‘feed’ it with brandy, marsala or alcohol of your choice is upto you, but make sure you make it a few weeks before you plan on eating it. It tastes much better if you let the cake mature, and if you are going to ice it then leave it to dry out around 1 week before so the icing sticks!

Christmas is just around the corner and that can mean only one thing – food, mulled wine and all things spice! I absolutely love Christmas and dare I say it’s not for the right reasons, but if only as an excuse to share good food and drinks with those I love. Since I moved to London I have been spoilt for choice around this time of year as there are so many special restaurant christmas menus, mulled wine wafting from the shops and wonderful seasonal produce available absolutely everywhere. I just wanted to share what Christmas means to me and let you in on my christmas day menu which I start planning before December hits!
