Welcome to Mackintosh's November Newsletter

November is the month that marks the start of winter and having already had our first flurries, maybe it will be like one of those depicted in a Dickens story, with the streets and shops glistening with snow as everyone does their Christmas shopping. It’s hard to believe but the holiday season is just around the corner, for you only have to walk down Oxford and Regent Street and see the shops twinkling with Christmas lights, and festive music ringing in your ears. So it’s a time to keep warm, get inventive with cooking, and perhaps start some Christmas prep too!

Let’s get warmed up with some seasonal foods...There’s nothing better than cosying up to the fire and watching a good movie with a hearty meal, knowing that outside the rain is falling, the wind is blowing and the last of the leaves are being blown off the trees. With some great root vegetables in season, such as butternut squash, pumpkin, parsnips, swede, celeriac to name but a few, a delicious stew or a soup would be the perfect meal. Nothing could be simpler to make than soup or a stew, especially since you can make it the day before.

Christmas parties...Bubbles on a budget

What would a Christmas party be without Champagne? With what’s been going on in the world’s economy, ‘the cheaper option’ has become a by-word; however our clients are finding there are some great bubbly alternatives. We are being asked for a good sparkling wine to jolly up parties and now have a really strong selection, which can be less than half the price of your favourite bottle of Champagne.

The gallery was filled with photographers, celebrities, including Huggy Ragnarsson, former model turned famous photographer as well as many more.
