Cook and food writer Sue Lawrence talks about why chestnut soup and sticky toffee sauce are favourites in her family at Christmas.

Chef Paul Wedgwood and Sue Lawrence share their ideas for festive soups and give inspiration for alternative Christmas deserts if you don't like Christmas pudding or perhaps just fancy a change this year!

Food blogger Claire Jessiman demonstrates how to make home-made, edible Christmas presents - this week, gingerbread biscotti.

Dan Holland visits Edinburgh's Scottish Market in St Andrew's Square and talks to some of the stall-holders about the food on offer.
