Fantastic chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has donated to TREE AID this wonderful cake. Hugh belives: "Villagers in Africa pick fruit, nuts and leaves straight from the trees around their villages-food doesn't come more local than that. It's a lifeline for them and vital that we do what we can to ensure they have enough trees for food and the many other products and benefits trees provide."

Delightful soup made with chestnuts toasted in butter, chicken stock, vegetables and Madeira wine. You can substitute Marsala for the Madeira. Serve hot with a spoonful of soured cream and a light sprinkle of cayenne pepper. This soup can be made up to 2 days in advance.

This chestnut soup makes a lovely Christmas starter. The chestnuts make this soup velvety and creamy without any cream. You can use nearly any winter squash for this soup, but butternut squash and pumpkin work especially well.

This is a nice winter stew or soup that everyone loves in my family. It is so comforting on a cold winter night, or it can be a Christmas main for vegetarians. It tastes wonderful the next day! Experiment with the vegetable combinations!
