Should the mostly-veg crew – the ones who occasionally eat meat and fish – be viewed as failed veggies? As meat lovers with a healthy helping of pretension? Or could a flexitarian diet be the compromise that reconciles appetite with environmental awareness? Lauren Bravo takes stock
A good cookbook is about so much more than recipes. It’s about memory, culture, time and place, discovery, sharing… about being human. We asked 15 chefs, cooks and food writers to share the books that have inspired them
So here it is: our 15th birthday culinary quiz, with 15 questions to test your knowledge of food – in music, in movies, on the telly and pretty much in general. There aren’t any prizes, but your honour is at stake!

For chef Henry Harris, duck is the king of birds for its flavour and its sheer versatility. Taking his cue from the traditions of southwest France, he puts on a variety show with duck starring in a number of roles: as tender confit legs, in a rich terrine, as marinated crispyskinned roast breasts, and smoked for a glorious Sunday evening treat

A burnished pastry crust is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate – and taking the time to make a pie is all part of the pleasure. These sweet and savoury gems from Annie Rigg’s latest book, Pies & Tarts, vary in trickiness but they all come with a level 10 joy-rating. So, as Annie urges, it’s time to “arm yourself with a rolling pin, dust your hands with flour and embrace this wonderful world”
Gingerbread soldiers, a nutcracker that turns into a prince, dancing sugarplum fairies… With a new Nutcracker film out this month, we took the traditional story as inspiration for a host of recipes.
