December 2011

F there’s one time of year that conjures up images of delicious food and indulgent drinks, it has to be Christmas. All through November and December we are dreaming of glistening roast turkey with all the trimmings and of course piles of goose fat roast potatoes, Christmas pud doused in brandy, deep-filled mince pies and more chocolate treats than you will see for the rest of the year. It’s also the season of goodwill, which means raising a glass with your nearest and dearest – whether your top tipple is a rich glass of red, a seasonal spirit, a refreshing pint or even a festive cocktail, we all love to eat, drink and be merry at this time of year. So it is no surprise that one of the top ways to socialise in December is to enjoy a meal out or a drink at a favourite pub or bar. Luckily, we’re spoiled for choice in this area – just take a look across these pages and you will see some of the tempting options awaiting you. Some of us love nothing more than a traditional Christmas dinner, while others prefer something a bit more international for a celebratory meal, whether that’s a big bowl of delicious pasta or a warming, spicy curry. Whatever your idea of culinary heaven, you will be sure to find something to suit not too far from your doorstep this year. Maybe you are still frantically trying to organise a last-minute office Christmas party or get together with friends? Or perhaps your gift to yourself this year is not having to face the task of cooking Christmas dinner and the mountain of washing up that comes afterwards? For any festive occasion you can count on being able to find the perfect venue locally. We have sourced some of the best options in the adverts on these pages so why not give one of them a try this year? You might have already noticed one of your favourite venues or seen an advert for somewhere you have been meaning to try for ages as you are reading through this. And who knows, you might even find a new local favourite for 2012. It is not too soon to start planning your New Year’s Eve celebrations either, so get searching through these ads and know that you’re sure to find the perfect place to celebrate among them. To get you into the Christmas spirit, here are a couple of recipes to try at home.

Roll out two thirds of the dough on a floured surface until about 5mm thick. Cut out circles to fit your muffin tray. Fill the pastry circles with one heaped teaspoon of mincemeat. Cut out smaller circles for lids and place on the pies. You can crimp the edges with a fork for decoration, or cut out stars and other shapes if preferred. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Leave to cool and then dust with icing sugar.
