THAT OLD ADAGE , ‘good things come to those who wait’, seems outdated. In fact, in the modern age, it seems like good things come to those who go out and grab them. Learning patience is, of course, a virtue, but waiting or taking it slow seem hard things to comprehend in 2019. A new year brings with it different needs; by March, though, we’re well and truly back in the swing, busy, probably entertaining a little less, needing sustenance and inspiration, but needing it fast as we get into the thick of life’s demands. We’re not on holiday anymore! Our mantra at delicious. is ‘impressive but effortless’.

DECEMBER’S MOST-LIKED POST 2169 likes, 45 comments Don’t consider yourself a fan of dried fruit? Rather than pretending to like fruit cake again, whip up this showstopping tiered coconut meringue instead and make everyone’s Christmas wish come true this year. Find the recipe at delicious.com.au.

My two best friends and I love to cook, and every Monday night we rotate between each other’s houses for dinner (read: cooking competition). We are all avid subscribers to delicious. and often text each other furiously when the new magazine arrives, reserving things we each want to cook. We recently had our Christmas dinner and spent the afternoon cooking together – only recipes from the magazine – and it was AMAZING! The brined roast turkey was the juiciest I have ever had, perfectly accompanied by the cacio e pepe gratin and roasted beetroot salad with goat’s cheese. The creamy herb dressing with the cos salad is a new staple for us and the smell of the cherry roast duck was to die for. To top it off, the ice…
