Ho Ho Ho and welcome to the December issue! Yes Christmas is coming but surely it’s only a few weeks since we were complaining it was too hot? How did that happen?

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you on behalf of all of us at Soltalk for the wonderful support of our advertisers, contributors and of course readers throughtout the year. And a very Merry Christmas to you all. Here’s to another great year, who knows by this time next year they may have even sorted out Brexit one way or another!

There seems to be a lot of festive spirit around already and plenty of carol services and Christmas markets to choose from this month. And I thought Jottings was particularly good this month so much so that there was nothing I could take out in order to fit in this last paragraph hence I am including it here…

News comes our way of a new Christmas treat on sale this month at Poppies, a fish and chip shop in the Soho district of London. We thought foodies had tried to deep-fry everything, but this eatery is offering deep-fried Quality Street chocolates. Tests have already shown which of the famous confectionary selection are most popular with the deep-fried Toffee Finger at Number One, followed by the Purple One (chocolate filled with hazelnut and caramel) and the Chocolate Caramel Brownie (the one in the cyan wrapper.) Least successful choc out of the fryer is apparently the Coconut Éclair.

Mmmm I bet that’s not very calorific! That’s it for now, have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy this issue.
