December 2014

Have a peek inside our special December 2014 holiday issue!


December food cover (this issue has two covers!).


Our December issue is packed with beautiful photos and stories you’ll love. We start off celebrating family and friends with a menu of delicious recipes, including everything you need to throw a traditional British feast, as well as dozens of gift-ready cookie and candy recipes. The good cheer doesn’t stop there. We also tried our hand at some gorgeous — and easy — paper crafts to decorate your home with; and we pass along expert tips on how to create your own foraged wreaths.

After all the cooking and crafting, wind down with our excellent, in-depth features. We have a powerful story about how addiction to prescription medication is taking over the lives of men and women across Canada. We catch up with the trailblazing (and recent Polaris Prize-winning!) Canadian throat singer Tanya Tagaq. And be sure to read Carol Toller’s exclusive profile of Justin Trudeau, which looks at his family life and his political playbook — the article itself was a matter of national debate when it ran online last month.

Once again we’ve gathered together the ultimate gift guide (with more than 70 quality gifts!) to help you find something for everybody on your list: be it the girly girl, health nut, foodie or even the man in your life. Plus, we’re excited to give you plenty of glam ideas for your holiday party attire. Our fashion team shares their top picks, how to wear it, and a massive shoe guide. Find all these stories and more in the latest issue of Chatelaine. And over the next month, we’ll bring you all of this  December 2014 content online as well.

From our family to yours, have a joyous holiday season!
