This month, we’re all about the celebrations that make up this rather special month.

WHAT IS THE PERFECT GIFT TO TAKE TO A FOODIE'S DINNER PARTY OVER CHRISTMAS? A We’ve all had a discussion here in the office and the unanimous decision is that some homemade delights would be well received. Why not have a go at something using the best of the seasonal veg, such as kimchi, pickled ginger or even sauerkraut. They are all surprisingly easy to make and bound to impress. Or if you haven’t the time or the inclination, then finding unusual ingredients in a high-end supermarket would also go down a treat. A pot of n’duja to smear on bread, or dried black limes to add to your Persian pursuits will be welcome in all our households – as will you to sample the dishes! HAVE YOU ANY GOOD IDEAS FOR MOCKTAILS, AS…

know your citrus

ORANGES come in a number of varieties, but fall into two camps, sweet or bitter. Our most common sweet orange is the Navel, these easy-peelers are seedless, so are perfect for eating. Blood oranges make a great colour splash to salads and tarts, but are only around from now until May. For a bitter orange, seek out the Seville orange. Too bitter to eat, they are great for marmalade and cooking with. So stock up when they are around during January. LEMONS are available all year round, but peak from now until March. The best lemons for wedging have smooth, thin skin, but for zesting, head for the knobbly, thicker skinned ones. CLEMENTINES This variety of tangerine is sweet and tangy, contains no seeds and is recognisable by its loose, baggy bright orange skin. They…

make the most of citrus

CITRUS ZEST Pull a zester (see below the pile of zest) lengthways down the citrus fruit to remove the peel in fine strips. Without a zester, peel the rind from the fruit using a vegetable peeler. Remove any white pith with a small sharp knife. Cut the rind into thin strips. SEGMENTING CITRUS Cut top and bottom off the fruit. Following the curve of the fruit, cut away the skin with the white pith. Holding the fruit over a bowl, cut down either side of each segment, between membranes, to release the segment. FINELY GRATED CITRUS RIND Use a microplane or fine grater to remove only the coloured rind from the fruit; this is where the oils and flavour are. Avoid the white pith, as it is bitter. CITRUS RIND STRIPS Peel rind thinly with a vegetable…
