Holiday food makes Imogen Wright a special kind of happy. You’ll find that her list is compiled of primarily sweet foods because you know what they say, you are what you eat.

1. Bûche de Noël – the light vanilla cake rolled impeccably into a cylinder with rich chocolate buttercream frosting to resemble the look of a log. It’s the kind of dessert that makes you question whether you want to devour it or light it on fire and curl up next to it on a cold winter’s night.

2. Pain aux chocolat – it’s the zero fuss, perfect-for-breakfast delicacy that makes you want to melt just like the strips of chocolate inside that beautiful, buttery pastry.

3. Cadbury chocolate – As someone from England, a great many things make me proud to be British: David Beckham, Her Majesty the Queen, a proper cup of tea, but most importantly, Cadbury chocolate.

4. Peppermint bark – I’m not saying that I love peppermint bark… I’m just saying that someone could smash a block of it over my head and I’d thank them.

5. Christmas pudding – this dessert is rich, boozy and is literally set on fire – how hardcore is that?

6. Cranberry sauce – it’s sweet, it’s bitter. Who knew an identity crisis could taste so good?

7. Yorkshire pudding – so versatile, so fluffy, so beautiful.

8. Hot chocolate – the perfect cold weather accompaniment.

9. Custard (crème anglaise) – while “custard” is a pretty generic term, this dessert is anything but. How is it that something with so few ingredients can transform into something so stunning?

10. Gingerbread – it’s the kind of biscuit that slaps you in the face in the best way.
