    Do you have any pet peeves relating to the Christmas season?

    Does anybody actually make or eat figgy pudding at Christmas time? Just listening to some Christmas music and it came up in the traditional Christmas song and then it got me wondering.

    Recipe Food Christmas decorations?

    Does anyone else make their own edible Christmas decorations? The main two I do are gingerbread biscuits to hang on the tree, and dried orange slices. I love the traditional look, and they smell nice too. The oranges are dead easy: just thinly slice a few oranges (they shrink as they dry so...

    Christmas Dinners from around the world

    I thought this was super interesting - it's the "typical" Christmas dinner from a number of countries! I can vouch for Japan being in love with KFC at Christmas time - nice work to the marketing genius who associated the two, because it's been a tradition here ever since, it seems, to get KFC...

    Do you cook turkey for Christmas dinner or a different bird?

    In our house the Christmas "bird" is a large turkey crown (we don't have a big enough oven to accommodate a whole bird and all the potatoes and veg etc. so we get a crown from the butcher around the corner and cook it on the top shelf). Are you a turkey family or do you cook a different bird...

    Recipe Homemade Christmas Cake

    OK, this is a once a year epic, you have been warned. It is best made around October half term and stored until Christmas. It is stunningly moist from the apple juice, but very heavy and simply wonderful for a hungry cyclist/mountaineer. We have omitted from the orginal recipe what we don't...
