Waitrose & Partners Weekend Issue 628

17 8 DECEMBER 2022 ALISON OAKERVEE Partner & food and drink editor Photographs: Ant Duncan, Food styling: Joss Herd, Styling: Wei Tang, Art direction: Pippa Paine Food&Drink One of my favourite things to do at Christmas is spend an afternoon making edible gifts for friends and family. It’s a lovely way to take a break from December’s hustle and bustle, and the results are always well received. Who doesn’t love a box of biscuits, some homemade fudge or a special jar of chutney to spice up Boxing Day cold cuts? If you’d like to have a go at making your own presents, Martha’s cookie recipes are fabulous – I recommend making two batches of each, so you can keep some!
