Rank #1: Winter Has Arrived
In our first episode, we’ll explore the wonderful crackle of winter – a fire in the hearth and boots crunching on frozen grass; as well as the softness – voluminous jumpers and the delicate steam from a deep bowl of soup. We’ll take a tour of Nuremberg and the Christkindlesmarkt, and I’ll talk you through my recipes for a sound malt loaf and some orange and poppy seed stollen. The perfect, sticky desserts to begin our wintery adventure.

Rank #4: The Christmas Tree

I’ll also give you my recipe for a fine, fruity chutney to accompany you through the winter months and brighten those stews, casseroles, and pies that sustain us in the cold.
