I’m ringing the changes and giving you two columns during December. They are about festive-season recipes so cannot be published on the last Saturday of the month as is usual. I shall showcase six recipes today and another six next Saturday - December 22, 2012. The format I have chosen is to highlight the 12 days before Christmas and start with what needs to be done first, working down to the last-minute items which have to be done on the day - the final preparations and putting everything together. African inspired, traditional recipes! I challenge one to get the traditional recipes correct before venturing off into the unknown. Nothing can be better than a chilled glazed gammon in this hot African sun.

Boozy Egg Pedro... a take on the South African Dom Pedro with an eggnog twist!
