Waitrose & Partners Weekend Issue 627

19 1 DECEMBER 2022 Food&Drink As Christmas comes closer, it’s easy to get so caught up in preparations that there’s no time to relax and enjoy the season. Before things get too hectic, I try to make a point of getting together with friends who I won’t see over the holidays for a relaxed dinner that’s the opposite of occasionally frazzled Christmas entertaining. This week’s Diana Henry menu is perfect for that – a Nordic in uence that feels right for the time of year, but di erent from the Christmas avours we’ll be surrounded with for the next few weeks. Why not take time out with friends and try it this weekend?
