Christmas cake, mince pies, candy canes, chocolate... food is endless at this time of year, what with work functions and family gatherings and drinks and nibbles with friends.
I'm kind of glad that I don't cook and that I'm very fortunate to have such lovely people around me who do all the hard work.
If you're struggling for inspiration for yet another Christmas get-together then why not check out some - if not all - of the books above and below. There's pretty much something for everyone, be you a vegan, a paleo or raw lover.
And if you more of a traditionalist then we've got you covered too.There's books on cakes and desserts, both large and decadent; and vegetables from artichokes to zucchinis.
And last but not least books on how to make every kind of cocktail imaginable.
G & T anyone?
