It's January, and while all the effort that went into Christmas is now but a distant memory, there are plenty of January events that are worth that extra effort to make special.

Firstly, we have Burns Night to celebrate, with is on the 25th of January. Anyone with Scottish heritage will know the night is a great excuse to enjoy a traditional Haggis, Tatties and Neeps. Then, the very next night is Australia Day, which gives us the excuse to celebrate agine, this time enjoying the best Australian cuisine has to offer.

Then we have Smashing Plates: Greek flavours redefined by Maria Elia, where traditional Greek dishes are done with a modern twist. It is a book that is full of lovely stories and beautiful recipes.
