December 2020 is the month of the substantial meal. And not simply because the government mandates it — but equally because you deserve it. Cauliflower cheese and creamed spinach and an extra Yorkshire pudding on the side of your 28-day-aged beef rump roast. A cheese course and a sticky toffee pudding and some extra brandy cream, thanks very much. It’s not gluttony — it’s charity. Both to the restaurant and to yourself. What a year.
WHY WE CHOSE THEM
We begin with our stalwart Portfolio section. There are some delectable Alpine spirits to ensure you’re suitably ‘piste’ this winter, whether you’re on the slopes or otherwise; some highly palatable leather gloves (sometimes, if you’re lucky, with cashmere linings); sturdy yet elegant winter boots to stomp around in; sparkling wines to celebrate simply getting through the day; and, of course, some of the loveliest watches that have come across our transom this year.
