Christmas Gourmet
The traditional suet puddings, wrapped in cloth at Providore, S66, need to be simmered in near boiling water for an hour before serving. They are in five different sizes that can feed two to twenty people. Bakers Tray, S25, has Xmas tree shaped mud cakes for $25 and ornate gingerbread houses for $45.

Look for the new Karvelli range of breads and danish at Kate's Patisserie, S50. The range includes wild sourdough fig and walnut loaf($7.90), olive, fetta and rosemary pide ($3.50), fig or raspberry danish and my favourite, the sourdough danish filled with frangipani cream ($3.50)
