Not only is Waitrose Kitchen the ONLY magazine to feature culinary heroine Delia Smith, who brings some sparkle to your yuletide table with her with spectacular festive puddings, the magazine also has a 'Complete guide to Christmas cooking' - with Rowley Leigh on turkey and Master baker Dan Lepard sharing his recipe for the ultimate Christmas treat - mince pies made with brandy and orange.
Charles Metcalfe and Emily O'Hare have cracked the best wines to accompany turkey, and for anyone tired of turkey, Waitrose Kitchen serves up some alternative Christmas lunches from exciting up-and-coming chefs. Venison with pickled pears anyone? Or maybe aubergines filled with pisto and manchego will tickles your taste buds?
There is even a treat for when the cooking's done! Put your feet up, relax and read Philip Pullman's retelling of a classic Grimm's fairy tale. Weaving a magical story of overindulgence and deceit, the famous children's author retells a tale about a cat and mouse. Again another feather in Waitrose Kitchen's cap, as it's the only place this exclusive extract appears this Christmas.
All this plus the ultimate guide to foodie gifts; the best food books of 2012; famous foodies share what makes the festive season special for them and find out why Lincolnshire has it all when it comes to growing and rearing festive produce.
Whatever you are doing, wherever you are, have a very happy - and delicious - Christmas.
