Savour delightful Christmas magic


IT'S Christmas, and if visions of sugar plums are dancing in your head, then check out tomorrow's issue of BT Weekend magazine where we serve you dessert - lots of it. Engage in some foodporn in glorious colour as we challenge some of Singapore's top culinary talents to create a visual dessert fantasy just for us. To translate their vision into reality, we called upon acclaimed food photographer Edmond Ho to guest-shoot these delicious creations. Check out his and the chefs' handiwork and get inspiration to create - or commission - your own sweet extravaganza to end off your Christmas parties this year.

If you need some extra food for thought, we speak to Michael Tay - Singapore's former ambassador to Russia and now arts entrepreneur who founded the annual music festival SingJazz to showcase local and regional musicians.

Meanwhile, if you haven't already decked your halls with boughs of store-bought Christmas decorations, then we have some suggestions for you as we visit two homeowners who have made it an annual tradition to fill their living rooms with the sights, sounds and flavours of the season. While they have already amassed their own collection of ornaments over the years, it doesn't mean that you can't start doing the same, with our DIY guide to decorating the Christmas tree, setting the table and making your own fresh and dried Christmas wreaths.

And finally, for the fashionistas on your list, we come up with a comprehensive range of gift suggestions for everyone from the minimalist to the trendsetter.
