Food by NGTUK winter 2022 cover

LONDON (1 December): This winter, Food by National Geographic Traveller (UK) is celebrating the showstopper ¬— those indulgent, often stunning centrepiece desserts that are the stars of the festive season.

The latest edition of this special-issue series puts the spotlight on some of the world’s most fascinating signature desserts, from Sweden’s Budapest roll and Viennese sachertorte to matcha mille crepe cake and New York cheesecake.

Glen Mutel, editor of Food by National Geographic Traveller (UK), said: “During the colder months, it’s important to be kind to yourself. And what better way than to indulge in something sweet.

“This issue, we’re celebrating the sumptuous desserts that adorn dinner tables across the globe during the festive season, from our own beloved trifle to France’s outrageous croquembouche.”

Also in this issue, we enjoy herring on Germany’s Baltic coast; Georgia’s signature cheesy bread, khachapuri, in the capital Tbilisi; a family feast in Singapore; and the culinary pleasures of Cornwall out of season, away from the summer crowds. All this, plus the highlights of Chicago, Lille and Toronto.

In addition, expect the usual mix of thought-provoking features and easy-to-follow recipes from world-renowned contributors.
