Wondering what to get this Christmas for someone who loves food? Forget traditional Christmas hampers full of chutneys and condiments that’ll never get used, or tacky cookery kits from the Boots 3 for 2 range.

The hamper contains everything they need to concoct a mouthwatering three-course meal, including ingredients for an antipasti sharing platter to start, followed by spaghetti Bolognese or four cheese and mushroom spaghetti for main course, and limoncino cake for dessert. To wash all that down, I included a bottle of Prosecco, and a bottle of red wine (also intended for use in the Bolognese sauce
