The gift that keeps n giv­ing

Epicure - - EDITOR’S NOTE -

School’s out. The glit­tery dec­o­ra­tions along the city side­walks are up. Wher­ever you may find your­self in De­cem­ber – whether you are lucky enough to ex­pe­ri­ence snow­fall or bask in the trop­i­cal heat – the Christ­mas mood is al­ways ju­bi­lant. It’s the most won­der­ful time of the year. Christ­mas is prob­a­bly your favourite hol­i­day for an­other rea­son. ‘Tis the sea­son to in­dulge and no one should judge you (at least not out­rightly) on what or how much you should eat. The won­drous aro­mas of mulled wine, stollen and stuffed tur­key come by once a year. So who’s go­ing to be the party pooper to tell you that you have been in­dulging in too many minced pies? A third serv­ing of beef Welling­ton? Just go right ahead.

An­other favourite part of the sea­son is, of course, the cus­tom of giv­ing and re­ceiv­ing presents. epi­cure’s an­nual gift guide is one of our favourite sec­tions to put to­gether be­cause they are also our team's ul­ti­mate wish list of fes­tive presents we would like to re­ceive for our­selves. Whether you are on a last-minute shop­ping run or sim­ply want to re­ward your­self, check out our rec­om­men­da­tions on page 116 for some in­spi­ra­tion.

Talk­ing about gifts, epi­cure re­ceived an early Christ­mas bonus. Our mag­a­zine picked up three awards at the 2018 Me­dia Pub­lish­ers As­so­ci­a­tion Sin­ga­pore Awards: Food Me­dia of the Year (gold) and Il­lus­tra­tion of the Year (sil­ver) as well as Asia Pa­cific Pub­lish­ing Awards’ Food Me­dia of the Year (gold)! We are elated and grate­ful at the same time for this in­dus­try recog­ni­tion. While we don’t pro­duce epi­cure to win awards, these ac­co­lades are, in no small part, a recog­ni­tion of the im­mense hard work and sac­ri­fice put in by the epi­cure team. We will con­tinue to do our darn­d­est to bring you, our loyal read­ers, the best is­sue each month and a great dose of foodie news through our so­cial me­dia plat­forms.

En­joy this is­sue and here’s a toast to a fab­u­li­cious 2019!

With the culi­nary team from The Fuller­ton Ho­tel Sin­ga­pore. Take a look at the six swoon­some recipes for a very sparkly Christ­mas on page 90.
