Christmas gift ideas get harder each year. I know for our children the surprises are less and the ideas are more difficult. So. this Christmas I have been looking at what is the new, particularly for fellow foodies. And DIY food kits seem to be o the increase as great gift ideas.
Over the past few years I have always tried to make my own Christmas cake. Firstly, it's a great thing to do on a really cold dark winters day as it turns your kitchen into a sweet, spicy and warm exotic location and I do really love a traditional fruit cake at Christmas - packed with dried fruits and nuts and with a hint of brandy too. It has become my Christmas therapy but I am lucky my family does appreciate it.
