Rachel Phipps  London food writer & freelance recipe developer. English wine enthusiast. My book, Student Eats is out now! #rachelphipps & #studenteatsbook

A quick glance at my analytics this morning tells me that loads of you are already printing off my Classic Gingerbread Men recipe for a spot of festive weekend baking - new on the blog today, link in profile! ✨

Nothing beats a scallop & creamed leek galette from La Cour Du Temple in Combourg. 🇫🇷

My Mulled Wine Jellies are new on the blog today (link in profile!) They’re one of my favourite festive desserts - they’re so quick to make ahead, they’re pleasantly boozy and look really pretty scattered with jewel-like fresh pomegranate seeds for colour, fruitiness and crunch.🍷

One of the best things about becoming a grown up? The ability to get stupidly drunk playing Monopoly with your parents.🥂

Yes, I think my Christmas holiday has officially started with a 1/2 dozen Cancale No. 3 oysters au nature and a bottle of Crémant de Loire. Would you believe me when I tell you I got all these oysters for 4€, and the bottle for 5€??

AD | Catering for meat eaters *and* vegetarians around the Christmas table this year? On the blog today (link in profile!) I’ve teamed up with @appletiseruk to bring you my recipe for Individual Portobello Mushroom Wellingtons - the fillings can be made ahead, so they’re an easy, low stress vegetarian main you can easily serve alongside the turkey! #PerfectPairing

I’m sharing a few (truffle infused) Christmas breakfast and canapé ideas on the blog today (link in profile!) as well as a little unboxing of what I think is @theofficialselfridges most luxurious foodie Christmas hamper this year stuffed with everything to do with - you’ve guessed it - truffles! | AD

So much fun judging the Canterbury Christmas Windows for the 4th year with @bidambassadors - loads of pictures to come both here and on my blog, but for now the window of @fitzgeraldjewellers which this year was a magical, Jungle Book scene.🌿✨

Waiting for the rain to clear treating myself @theparaderoom above @onepoundlane in Canterbury: they’re now open for lunch Wednesday to Saturday (and they do a roast on Sunday) as well as the evenings with a fantastic value, £15.50 for two courses, £18.50 for three - my pick for a pick me up when you’re Christmas shopping! From the new menu: a beautiful, light, comforting and perfectly cooked plate of pan roasted cod served with lemon and dill mash, a beautiful warm tartar sauce and a squid ink rice crisp. 👌🏻

I’ve put our family recipe for Beef, Tomato & Pepper Casserole with Black Olives up on the blog today (link in profile!) because now it has got colder I think this is just the sort of thing we need to cosy up with before we all go all out Christmas! It only takes about 20 minutes to make before you can put it in the oven and forget about it, and is delicious over brown rice, mashed potatoes or slightly sloppy polenta.

From the set lunch menu @compassesinncrundale today, this is how you turn a simple fillet of sea bream into a hearty (but still delicate) autumn / winter meal: crisped skin, a shatteringly crisp potato rosti, savoury jus, savoy cabbage, caramelised onions, topped with tender, super smokey smoked salmon chunks.🍴
