ou know that feel­ing. The tem­per­a­ture’s ris­ing out­side. The tem­per­a­ture’s ris­ing in­side. The heat’s on! And I’m not just talk­ing about the weather. There’s noth­ing quite like the silly sea­son frenzy. But not this year. This is­sue is your fes­tive-sea­son life­saver, part se­cret weapon, part sur­vival guide. Scram­bling your way through the Chrissy rush? Grab our su­per-speedy mid-week meals, along with a tasty pre­view of Matt Pre­ston’s new book, Yummy Easy Quick (p41), for clever dishes that are ready in min­utes. Want to cut the pain and up your game with this year’s fes­tive feast? Dive into our Easy Cheat’s Christ­mas menu (p86). Look­ing for the ul­ti­mate dessert? Hello Choc Cherry Bombe Alaska (this month’s cover), with just eight in­gre­di­ents and only 20 min­utes prep. Freeze it ahead (p10). And if it “all goes to pot”, as my grandma used to say, just reach for a plat­ter to knock your guests’ socks off (p95)! Christ­mas Eve, legs stretched out, with an icy glass be­tween my fin­gers. Done! Is it cool in here, or is it just me?

PS Look out for our star tips through­out the is­sue for more ideas from our food­ies.
