Apart from Christmas presents the other big worry is food and drink. Choosing the right party food and picking a great menu for your guests can be a bit of a headache.
So before you set off to the nearest supermarket take a look at what other consumers thought of different varieties of traditional food like turkey, mince pies, Christmas pudding and After Eights... Or get inspired to create your own Christmas food recipe and share it on our forums. But don’t forget the drinks, a nice bottle of port or brandy makes a great after dinner drink or emergency gift! We’ve also got hamper reviews and gift ideas for foodies and wine lovers too.

Delia Smith's Christmas has got to be the ultimate guide to Christmas cooking, it's one of those books that every mum seems to have! I have to say I've always found Delia's recipe's a bit over complicated but as Christmas is the time when you put a real effort into dinner; this is a great book to have.

A Lazy Cooks Christmas by Mo Smith really appealed to me as I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to cooking and thought Christmas is as good a time as any to start... nothing like throwing yourself in at the deep end! Well the content itself is great, there's some fantastic ideas in here on how to entertain big groups of people such as Soup and Mince Pie parties, with emphasis on preparation as key. The only issue is that I have the paperback version which has no pictures, and while this… Read Full Review

I'm on my last box of this delicious, beautiful, elegant and flavorful white chocolate orange ball. During Xmas holidays I bought six boxes for my friends and for home. Soon after the first wedge I was compelled to "keep just three". You can say I'm greedy but who can resist giving in to this temptation? after all I shared the other three boxes with my friends! Yes, I must confess I feel guilty but you alone know what I've done. I was attracted by the [box] presentation and I knew I was… Read Full Review
