RECIPES FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Not a fan of turkey? Serve up a roast capon instead. It is less gamey, smaller and much easier to handle.

Try food writer Hedy Khoo's recipe for a tandoori-inspired capon, marinated with yogurt, chilli powder and spices such as ground turmeric and garam masala.

Bake a gooey peanut butter chocolate chip blondie in a skillet for dessert. The recipe is adapted from American model Chrissy Teigen's new cookbook, Cravings: Hungry For More.

Serve warm, with a scoop of vanilla or coffee ice cream.

A MAGICAL CHOCOLATE ROAD

Firefighters came to the rescue after a chocolate spill caused a road closure in Westonnen, a suburb of Werl, Germany. A tank in the DreiMeister chocolate factory had overflowed and the chocolate river breached the factory grounds and streamed onto the nearest road. About a tonne of chocolate soon solidified in the crisp December air, creating something of a magical carpet.
