Speedy meals

As ever, our main focus is on quick and easy recipes for busy days, and our 20 Quick Weeknight Meals section gives you a whole month of delicious ideas. Fancy a baked potato for lunch? We've got lots of tasty toppings to try and Anjum Anand cooks up some familiar favourites with an Indian flavour.

Easy entertaining

We’re also thinking ahead to Christmas, so in this issue you’ll find 10 top tips for making it as stress-free as possible. There’s also a great freeze-ahead one-pot, a fab Christmas cake recipe from Saturday Kitchen’s James Martin, plus his clever twist on a Christmas pud which you can stash in the freezer.

TV cooks

There are some great recipes from the BBC chefs this month. MasterChef's John Torode cooks up a delicious help-yourself seafood curry. Plus, Great British Bake Off winners Jo Wheatley and Edd Kimber have some brilliant bakes including white chocolate muffins, red velvet melting moments and yummy Polish gingerbread (which is perfect for freezing too).

Cookery school

Each month we bring you a technique or skill to learn to speed up your cooking and help you make the most of the time you spend in the kitchen. This month, we have a traditional recipe for duck confit. It's not nearly as scary as you might think. Follow our easy step by step guide and you'll have super tender meat every time.
