Welcome from the editor: the Weekly before Christmas
Welcome, thank you for joining me this weekend and Merry Christmas!
Yes, I am a little early with my seasonal greetings, but this is the last Food Matters Weekly of 2022 and I couldn’t possibly break off for the holidays without wishing you a happy Yule and wonderful 2023.
Weekly will be back on Saturday 7 January, but fret not, because in the meantime we have lots of fresh, informative and also festive content on Food Matters Live, including 2022 round-ups, the must-know food trends for the year ahead and much, much more.
Many of us are already planning and preparing for the big day dinner, so don’t miss our feature A plant-based Christmas: festive food and drink for all tastes and pockets, packed with plenty of ideas to keep everyone well-fed on the 25th.
If you are reminiscing about your best meal of 2022 already, find out which dishes made Grace Dent cry with joy because they were so good in the Food Matters Live Podcast.
Between buying presents and shopping for Christmas food, you might have missed out on some breaking stories, so as always, we bring them to you in an easily digestible format in A week in news: the latest food and drink headlines 12-16 December.
Find out what people around the globe eat to welcome the new year in New Year’s food traditions from around the world, and catch up with one of our most popular features of 2022, Banned ingredients: the food additives no longer allowed in the UK and why.
Merry Christmas and happy New Year!
