Modern London is a city in turbulence, a cosmopolitan cauldron in which more things change than stay the same, where all the world comes to throw a tantrum, get rich through property and complain about schools. Its restaurant scene has generally kept up.

So you're about to gorge yourself on turkey and too much Christmas cheer. But that doesn't mean the party has to stop as the clock ticks over into New Year's Day. There are plenty of ways to extend the season of indulgence both in the UK and abroad.

I came to cooking randomly My best friend entered chef school and as I didn't know what to do, I followed him. I'd never cooked in my life until then. But when the teacher asked us to cook a plate of food, rather than thinking about girls, I started thinking, what is food to me, why do I like to eat? It was my first adult thought and I fell in love with cooking.

Generalisations about nationality are worthless. I've met plenty of extremely unpassionate Spaniards, several far-from-cowardly Italians and a few Welshmen who have no obvious tendencies to larceny. So I'm suspicious about the claim that the Office of National Statistics' annual update of the country's favourite purchases offers a true picture of the Real British. They keep a record of the 650-odd things on which we spend more than £400m, and claim that these goods and services somehow define us as a population. And if sales drop below a certain level, it means that we're just not like that any more.
