In the Autumn there was a second edition, full of warm colours and more inspiration, and now the third edition has hit the shops and it's jam packed full of great ideas for Christmas, including lots of suggestions for homemade foodie gifts.
I was delighted to be asked to try some of the recipes, and sample some of the gift ideas.
A beautifully wrapped box arrived at my house. As well as the magazine, it contained a selection of goodies, My daughter and I had a lovely time trying the cookie press and the Home Baked stamp.
We decided to make the Christmas Spiced Truffles (an Edd Kimber recipe), we were really impressed with them. They are rich and unctuous, and will make a perfect gift for Christmas, We plan to make another batch (we had plenty of chocolates from this recipe), use some of the gorgeous John Lewis packaging and give them to teachers, friends and neighbours, along with some of my Peppermint Bark, you can find my recipe here.
Thank you to John Lewis for sending me the baking goodies, and a gift voucher to cover the cost of the ingredients in the cooking.
If you don't have a local John Lewis you can still read the magazine as it is now available on The Newstand, at the App Store, just search for John Lewis Cook.(You'll find the Autumn edition there too, just incase you missed it!) You can find all the useful tools and packaging either in the shop or online at John Lewis.
