Food for Thought plans Christmas

Written by on 16th December 2012

Food is an important part of Christmas so for this week’s Food for Thought I tried to find out what kinds of food and advice Lincoln has to offer at this time of year.

To start of this festive edition was the annual Lincoln Christmas Market to find out what foods were available and why people come to sell their creations here in Lincoln each year, including our German twin town.

If you attempt to cook turkey this year for the family then my chat with Rachel Green might be helpful. Her words of advice include planning ahead and know what you need to do. She also has some recipes for what to do with leftovers.

Any important occasion needs cake and Darren Burrows from the No 82 Cake Studio here in Lincoln shares his knowledge of how to make great fruit cake just before the big day.

Every family has their own traditions when it comes to Christmas food, such as what to eat and when. But how do other countries celebrate? Earlier in the year I spoke to the organisers of the Lincoln Oktoberfest and asked them about what German food is around at Christmas time.

Make sure you listen this week for more Christmas as I find out what Victorians ate for Christmas dinner from the Museum of Lincolnshire Life and speak to a man who has been reviewing Christmas sandwiches.
