\u2018Twas two nights before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.Well, that\u2019s not actually true, because with Christmas round the corner, we\u2019re all fighting against the snow to get those last minute presents, panic buying from the local supermarket and scratching our heads about how we\u2019re going to serve up a feast on Christmas Day.We might be a little late to the party on this one, as it is actually an advent calendar in its own right, but nevertheless, today we dive into the culinary delights of Waitrose.Waitrose Christmas\nFormat\nAndroid, iPhone\nPrice\nfree\nWhere\niTunes\u00a0or Android Market\nA free download for either Android or iPhone, there is quite a lot of on offer here from Waitrose. This is really all about food, planning and partying, of course with Waitrose ready and willing to sell you all the ingredients you\u2019ll need. If you\u2019ve been watching TV over this festive period, you can\u2019t help but have noticed Waitrose\u2019s advertising with Heston Blumenthal and Delia Smith. Yes, the one with the QR code the flashes up for a fraction of a second.The chefs find their way into the app, offering up recipe suggestions. Easy to navigate and clearly laid out, you can dive into Delia\u2019s vanilla cream terrine recipe and find all the ingredients you need, a detailed recipe and nutritional info (it\u2019s Christmas, don\u2019t even go there).Aside from the token celebrity endorsement, you\u2019ll find a range of different recipes broken down into categories and covering starters, mains, sides, all the way up to cocktails.Aside from recipes, the app offers several tools and planners, including a turkey cooking timer and veg calculator where you just have to select the weight (for the turkey) or the number of mouths you have to feed to get the weight of veg you need. There is also a \u201cBig Day Planner\u201d which will see you up before the sun, peeling carrots and pre-heating the oven.\u00a0Moving on there is a wine guide, suggesting that you might want a 2008 Meursault or 2007 Saint-\u00c9millon Grand Cru with your main course (and several suggestions for each other course). We thought the suggestion of a 12-Year-Old Glenlivet whisky \u201cTo Finish\u201d was particularly apt.\u00a0It might be a little late to compose this year\u2019s shopping list, but there are still plenty of ideas if you\u2019re desperately seeking that perfect dish for Christmas or New Year.
