The wish list DEAR SANTA… Not sure what to buy for the foodie in your life? Xanthe Clay asks some familiar faces what they would love to find in their Christmas stockings
Food makes a great Christmas present. After all, most of us are trying to ditch clutter rather than get more stuff, and a tin of artisan-made biscuits or a bottle of wine doesn’t hang around like that unfortunate tie or those ill-advised Maplin vouchers.
If you want something more permanent, then good kitchen kit – and I’m talking quality staples, not the Brussels sprouts corer or novelty bottle holder – is really satisfying to use. In case you’re stuck for inspiration, we’ve asked our favourite foodies what they’d love for Christmas, to ensure they eat, drink and are happy well into the new year.
