Best winter breakfast recipes

If you need a little more convincing than usual to get out of bed when it's cold outside, try these warm, hearty breakfast ideas to get you going, from waffles to warm polenta and smoky beans with bacon.

What to cook this winter

From rib-sticking beef rendang to the perfect goat's cheese quiche, these are the recipes to tick off for winter (so far).

Chocolate hob-nobs

These extra-large oat biscuits are exactly what you need to get through the afternoon slump. Have one with a strong cup of tea and you'll be firing.

Recipes using turmeric

An old Indian spice lauded for its health benefits, turmeric adds both colour and a peppery, warm, sometimes slightly bitter flavour to food. Use it in curries, with rice, as a paste for grilled meats and in warm winter soups.

Citrus recipes

From tarte au citron to canard a l’orange, citrus flavours have long been friends of French cuisine. Pucker up for a taste of the sun-kissed Mediterranean and further afield with these recipes featuring oranges, lemons, grapefruit and mandarins.

Winter tart recipes

Tarts are as versatile as they are delicious, and are perfect for baking on a cool winter's day.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

One-pot recipes

There's no need to do the dishes with these one-pot wonders. From hearty stews to creamy risottos, these recipes are mess free and perfect for a winter's night.

Roman cocktail bars

The Jerry Thomas Project, Rome

The Jerry Thomas Project, Rome

Romans are learning to unwind with craft cocktails at a new crop of bars.

In Rome, where food and alcohol are inseparable partners, the idea of a cocktail hour without snacks or a meal has never really taken off. Yet a small but growing crop of city bars has begun mixing craft cocktails that put the spotlight on spirits and go way beyond the standard Spritz or watered-down Mojito.

The granddaddy of Roman cocktail bars is The Jerry Thomas Project, a members-only lounge (subscribe and pay an annual fee on entry) serving American classics fashioned from the best selection of booze and homemade bitters in town, including a perfectly balanced Sazerac with a splash of absinthe.

At Barnum Café, Federico Tomasselli and Patrick Pistolesi mix drinks customised to their patrons' tastes; their American-inspired menu includes a few Italian touchstones as well, such as a Negroni made with hand-crafted bitters. Tomasselli and Pistolesi's side project, The Gin Corner, is Italy's first gin-centric bar; it keeps more than 80 labels for Martinis and Gin Tonics.

For cocktails with a view, 0-300º pours flamboyantly garnished drinks on the sixth-floor roof terrace of the First Luxury Art Hotel. A stroll away, the Stravinskij Bar in the luxurious Hotel de Russie serves classic cocktails in its ground-floor garden. The hotel's former bar manager, Massimo D'Addezio, launched his solo project, Co So, in Pigneto late last year and draws from an arsenal of housemade fat-washed spirits and aromatised wines. Also in Pigneto, Dal Verme gives a local twist to a New Orleans classic; its signature Sagerac uses sage, a herb common to Roman cooking.
