Christmas is our favourite season of the year, a time when we give ourselves a few moments to count our blessings and look forward to a brand new year.
It’s also when we pull out all the stops and party. We’ve got you covered in that department with our #FestiveIssue. It’s rich with feasting and gifting ideas, stories about what Christmas feasts are made of around the world (not just Turkey!), non-vintage champagnes and champagne cocktails, nine hometown festive recipes from top chefs in Singapore, and a list of online specialist grocers that will help you bring something special to the table this year. Most of all, don’t miss our special report on Sussex sparkling wine producers who are making a name for English wines.
Other tidbits to check out: Our interviews with Singapore’s latest Bocuse d’Or hopeful, chef Noel Ng of Fairmont Singapore and Swissotel The Stamford, and Shigeyuki Kusunoki, director of Kusunoki Winery in Nagano, Japan; a sea sojourn through Japan’s coastal cities; and new restaurant openings and menus from Adrift by David Myers, Bayswater Kitchen, NUDE Grill and more.
