December means good times are coming (hope, hope, hoping nothing scuppers plans last-minute), and I bring you tidings of joy with this twinkle-filled issue . In between all that cooking, pour a snifter of sloe gin, sit and enjoy festive musings by novelist Sebastian Faulks, then flick on a few pages to Diana Henry’s triumph of an interview with Nigel Slater. How heartening it was to discover two things: Diana gets nervous about cooking (or, rather, baking) for Nigel; and he gets panicky when people tell him they love cooking his recipes (worried in case they don’t work... bless him).
