For starters... >> As chefs across the range of foodservice sectors gear up for the busy Christmas season, this issue is bursting with recipe inspiration for festive delights. Our Category Focus looks at Winter Warmers, we’ve got advice on how to create the perfect cheeseboard and five deliciously different ideas for baking with fruit mincemeat. Ice queen Jayne Torvill talks about her debut panto performance and shares her Signature Dish, whilst MasterChef winner and owner of the Wahaca Mexican food chain Thomasina Miers provides a welcome bit of heat in Leading Lights. For caterers in the care sector, we’ve got a great on-trend recipe for diners with dysphagia, plus a fascinating interview with Phil Kelley, national chairman of the Hospital Caterers Association, who is calling on the Government to set a fixed minimum cost for hospital food. We’re also giving away this year’s must-have Christmas gift – a swegway – on our Country Club page, so make sure you enter!
