With the festive season upon us, we wish you all the best for the holidays and the new year with an issue that includes three tasty recipes from the GI News Kitchen (Johanna’s Canoli Cream Dip, Diane’s Homemade Hommus and Miguel’s Garlic Prawns) along with simple tips from Emma Stirling on celebrating in style without regret (well, not too many regrets). We will be doing just that with our families and friends. We love the comment from distinguished professor of public health and professor of epidemiology at the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public Health, Dr. Lewis Kuller, who said ‘…Eating is a social pleasure and not a therapeutic challenge.’

Good eating, good health and good reading.
