When it’s cold outside the only wise move is to batten down the hatches and make it warm and super-cosy inside. That’s the theme running through this issue: love your home, cook great food and give yourself licence to RELAX. If you find it hard to switch off (I’m with you on that), persist – you can do it! At this time of year people tend to socialise less, so relish the pleasures of contemplation, rediscover reading, stay off social media for an afternoon or evening (preaching to myself here), go for a bracing walk and enjoy the occasional TV blitz.

SUBJECT: Fond memories FROM : Molly Price I so enjoyed the childhood memories menu in the November issue [p58]. My grandma Shirley’s recipe for lemon cream reminds me of her – a recipe that’s been in the family for a long time. She used to make it for afternoon tea in the garden and, when she passed away, we printed the recipe on the front of her eulogy for everyone to remember her by.

Add the juice from the two lemons and 3-4 ounces of caster sugar . Pour it over roughly crumbled ginger nut or ratafia…
