Family. Friends. Food. The three Fs. These are the things I think of at Christmas as I go into a cooking frenzy. This year I made 2 puddings, a double batch of shortbread biscuits (decorated in chocolate by my daughters), egg nog, vanilla bean ice-cream (to go with the pudding), lemon sorbet (because my daughters prefer this to the ice-cream), caramel fudge and dark chocolate Scotch whisky fudge (using Tslisker). I set one of the puddings alight this evening. The other is for tomorrow.
