Nutritionist and author Kirsten Hartvig talks to Pennie Latin about her book "Eat For Immunity" and offers practical advice on strengthening the body's defence systems. Which ingredients should we be using - especially at this time of year - and which immune-boosting recipes can we easily incorporate into our cooking?

Long, dark winter days often mean only one thing in the kitchen - comfort food! Cook Mary Contini offers us ideas and inspiration for hearty, winter-warmers.

Cook and food writer Ghillie Basan makes Butternut Squash and Coconut Milk Soup with Ginger. The recipe will be available to download and print off.

Teenager Eilidh Stewart is down to the last eight in a competition to win scholarship at the prestigious Cordon Bleu cookery school in London. She shares her passion for cooking with Pennie.
