We'd like to start this piece by saying a huge thanks to everyone. All the lovely people, chefs, readers, writers, bloggers - the list really is endless - as is our gratitude to everyone who has joined the FDL community so far. It's been our first year and we're honored to have so many great people involved with the site, we understand it wouldn't be possible without you and we really appreciate it all. So from everyone at FDL HQ we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, we look forward to more fun and adventures together next year.
Like most food lovers at Christmas, we've been swept up by the festive bug this year and FDL HQ has been packed with Christmas cheer. With that in mind we thought we'd take a look back at December and bring you some of the best FDL Christmas moments...
FDL covered all your foodie Christmas gifts this year with a round up of some of the best, wackiest, and fun presents to buy for your food loving friends. There were 22 great suggestions, from inside out champagne glasses to whiskey stones and even a foodie traveller survival kit. We also brought you some suggestions on great places to buy high quality knives online for those friends who are serious in the kitchen. So if you've suddenly realised you've forgotten someone's gift this Christmas this list could be for you.
