letter publisher's the arrivalof the holiday season always renews my enthusiasm to get back to the kitchen, try new recipes, and entertain friends and family members. Food has always been a favorite topic of mine, and apparently I'm not alone: According to a recent survey, more Americans watch the Food Network than CNN. With so many people on special diets these days, it can be a bit daunting to create a meal that everyone BETH FURMAN beth@wellesleywestonmagazine.com will eat and enjoy. Fortunately, we live in an area with well-stocked grocery stores and gourmet specialty shops filled with a variety of food items that cater to all tastes. The addition of the Wellesley Farmer's Market this year made eating "local" easier than ever, and Land's Sake Farm in Weston continues to be a wonderful source of fresh produce. In our Food and Wine article on special diets, you'll learn more about how to embrace a healthy eating plan that eliminates dairy, meat, sugar, wheat, or whatever it is that you need to pursue a healthy lifestyle. Don't feel like cooking? Read our Local Cuisine article and discover the unique dining experience that Land's Sake Farm sponsors at the historic Josiah Smith Tavern in Weston. This is also the time of year when we ponder creative ways to ring in the New Year and celebrate in style. The Weston 300 committee has been working hard this year to make next year truly memorable as the Town celebrates its Tercentennial. In "Weston Turns 300," you'll get a sampling of the events that are planned throughout 2013 and discover how you can be a part of this memorable occasion. WellesleyWeston Magazine plans to keep you posted on additional Weston 300 events in our spring and summer issues, so stay tuned. This time of year can also create a bit of excitement and anxiety as we search for the perfect gifts for the special people in our lives. To make things a bit easier, we consulted local merchants and added a "Holiday Gift Guide" for women, men, and children to our winter issue. I hope you'll find this helpful and take the guide with you as you shop for "local" gifts. Another recent addition at the magazine is our updated website that now features the entire current issue online. Just visit www.wellesleywestonmagazine.com, and enjoy.
