Oh come all ye faithful!

That’s right, it’s that time of year when the reviewers round up their top choices for the year, and when it comes to gift-buying, cookery comes high on the list. So it was wonderful to see Strudel, Noodles and Dumplings up on Bee Wilson’s Sunday Times list for this year - an honour indeed coming from a highly thoughtful and respected food writer.

And even if your gift recipient’s bookshelves are heaving too much to take any more, polymath Anja Dunk has got you covered in the art department, with her limited edition lino cuts flying off the shelves at Honey & Co - even more so since being featured in the Observer Food Monthly’s gift guide.
