As I type this letter, it’s 3pm in the afternoon and the morning frost has not entirely lifted. There’s a clear blue sky outside, but the temperature has barely risen above freezing. Yes, we are deep in the heart of winter and it’s very, very cold! Apart from the continuously-refilled mug of steaming coffee that sits on my desk, what’s keeping me warm is all the fantastic content in this week’s issue. We’ve done our best to keep you cosy with comforting recipes, fabulous fiction, inspiring interviews and much more. Have a great week!
