Hooray for the holidays!

Are you still searching for some final ideas to choose the perfect present? You’ve received an invitation, but what surprise can you take along as a gift when you get there? A hamper, biscuits, a bottle of champagne…? If you are arranging a family gathering, which celebratory meal will be well-received by your nearest and dearest? Traditional, or more of a journey of discovery? Something exotic, or instead the familiar tastes of yesteryear? Do you end the meal with cheese, a Christmas log, or ice cream?
