At work we spent our biannual staff day out at one of our biggest and most beautiful nature reserves making woodland Christmas crafts ready to sell at local markets to raise money. An army of wooden snowmen were constructed, along with fire-making kits, wooden deer, pine cone firelighters, wreaths, painted Father Christmas's and garlands. I offered to make a stew to keep everyone warm and productive, so made a hearty beef and ale stew with dumplings using award winning rare breed Ruscombe Red Poll beef and a gluten free butternut squash, spinach and chickpea hotpot. It was quite a challenge to cater for 40 people but I really enjoyed it.
