Whether or not you em­brace Christ­mas, an ex­trav­a­gant fam­ily feast prob­a­bly lies at the heart of your hol­i­days—but what about all the other days and weeks that make up the sea­son? We’d like to share some prac­ti­cal ideas and in­spi­ra­tion that may come in handy, start­ing with a bat­tery of recipes for dishes you can take to a party. We’ve also put to­gether a cal­en­dar plan­ner that cov­ers a num­ber of dif­fer­ent culi­nary op­tions spread over all five week­ends in De­cem­ber. Look­ing for de­li­cious new flavours, Christo­pher St. Onge ze­roes in on ever­green plants from rose­mary to cedar while Joanne Yolles cre­ates some stun­ning desserts that start with home-baked cook­ies.

Did you ever feel the party goes on too long while you wait for mid­night on New Year’s Eve? We have some so­lu­tions for that. And our fi­nal two fea­tures take care of the big day and be­yond with recipes for a light lunch paired with low-al­co­hol drinks and a story on mak­ing scrump­tious meals out of left­over Christ­mas turkey. To­gether we can make the fun and fes­tiv­i­ties last all sea­son long.
