Food plays a huge part of any Christmas celebrations and everyone needs to put in a little planning. These Christmas recipes and advent calendar will give you all the inspiration you need.

While for the sweet-toothed individuals out there, how about mincemeat muffins or desserts bursting with raspberries, chocolate, orange and ginger?
