    This gluten-free cake takes a little effort, but the results are really worth it. It's deliciously rich and addictive. The cake is flavoured with chestnuts, almonds, chocolate and brandy. What else could you want? It's perfect for special occasions, such as Christmas.

    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 soup even my mushroom hating husband likes!! Ideally served with warm crusty rolls on a winter evening. Not so good as a starter as it is quite filling x
