It's time to dig out those decorations, compile your card list and think about the gifts that need to be made or bought for your friends and family. Christmas is a wonderful time, but if you're hosting a gathering it can be tough to juggle everyone's preferences without spending hours in the kitchen. However, like a fairy godmother at the panto, Vegetarian Living is here to help!
We've packed plenty of seasonal inspiration into this issue, featuring mix-and-match ideas for special starters and main courses that are perfect for Christmas or Boxing Day lunch (page 36), plus delicious vegan side dishes from Áine Carlin. For dessert, try James Martin's show-stopping meringue roulade for a lighter alternative to the usual steamed pud or Sarah Beattie's Provençal-style pompe à l'huile; but if you're a traditionalist we've also got recipes for a fabulous vegan Christmas cake and pudding.
If you'd love to bake some homemade goodies, either to serve at home or give as gifts, then our dedicated cakes and bakes section is the perfect excuse to get your pinny out. And what better to serve with your sweet treats than a glass of mulled wine? Try our ideas for warm winter drinks, including white chocolate eggnog and Scandinavian gløgg, all of which are perfect for guests, or just an evening indulgence for you and a special someone.
It may be hard to believe at times, but Christmas is only a single day in December, and you'll be craving quick and cosy cooking for the rest of the month. We've got hearty dishes from Sydney-based food blogger Katie Quinn Davies, a super-simple soup and scone lunch from Rachel Allen and Rachel Demuth's vibrant seasonal root vegetable dishes that are definitely not just for Christmas...
