December is here and I am beginning to feel really festive. I have been bottling some rum soaked and spiced baby figs for presents - these are so delicious with a dab of mascarpone or clotted cream served with a strong espresso. Next it will be off to bake a few early mince-pies. And what could better bring the memories of Christmas Past flooding to my mind than Lynne Roche's latest fabulous doll creation - Bessie.
