Finally, once you have finished your eating and drinking and learning… and eating! Head towards Taste’s boutique market, a shopping area where you can find your ideal Christmas present –from hand crafted jewellery, to handbags and handmade gift boxes – the essential ingredient for your menu or a winter warmer for your Christmas, probably not in London, but surely in whatever place is going to be you Home by then…
