Let us bring a bit of warmth to the bleakest season with a range of fabulous recipes for sharing with friends and family. Check out how to make the most of a small kitchen space with Wellington locals Luke and Amanda Pierson, see how clever culinary kids are leading the way in Fresh, Fierce Future Foodies and take the ultimate armchair trip around Dublin with Síana Clifford.
We know you’ll want to get busy in the kitchen with Sarah Tuck’s Ultimate Beef Rib Eye. Sneakily easy to make, and taken to the next level with a Cheat’s Horseradish Cream and classic Potato Gratin – It's guaranteed perfection.
Gather the troops to feast on Olivia’s Galletly’s Baked Creamed Corn and Bacon Gnocchi – a family favourite in the making. Meanwhile, cold, wet Sundays are made for her Cinnamon and Apple Pinwheels with Brown Butter Cream Cheese Icing!
You’ll swoon at Food editor Claire Aldous’ Polenta and Rosemary Cake with Honey and Bay Leaf Syrup (the dish team couldn’t get enough of it!). And who wouldn’t want to dive into a pot of whole Roasted Cauliflower and Potato Soup with Crisp Garlic and Parsley Crumbs?
Finally, for a quick and easy, yet sumptuous, midweek solution Jane Lyons has you covered with her simple Three-Pepper Cacio E Pepe or a bowl of soft Polenta with Roasted Jerusalem Artichokes and Garlicky Lemon Dressing.
Winter has never tasted so good...
