Davina's Smart Carbs: a cookbook challenge — That Davina McCall, who graced our screens for years with Big Brother, Comic Relief and other popular TV shows, now has a cookbook out is a bit silly really. The throwaway line is: well anyone can have a cookbook these days, can't they?

It's calçotada time in London: get your hands dirty at a Spanish-style onion party — Sit up, tuck your napkin in and set aside some wet wipes, for things are about to get messy. This Sunday you are all invited to take part in the last calçotada of the month in Brixton.

Cookbook challenge: Victoria Stewart puts The 60-Second Chef to the test — Let's go back to last weekend. It is the second day in January, and I am in mum's kitchen learning how to slice an onion. But I haven't got a teacher in the same room as me; he's in London and he's instructing me via a video tutorial.

Everything you need to know about drinking port this Christmas — Max Graham, whose father Johnny set up Churchill's Port in 1981, grew up drinking the stuff and remembers playing games of 'guess the vintage' when he was younger. In 2013-14 Graham opened Churchill's Port House, an eight-month pop-up port bar in Soho, in which he wanted to educate his customers about the variety of styles port has to offer.
