Although we don't like to admit it, summer is drawing to a close and soon the days are going to be shorter and the nights a little cooler. But the upside of that is that we get to cosy up with soup, hot chocolate and delicious winter comfort meals. Woolies makes the transition so much simpler with these bright and cheerful winter crockery ranges. We're particularly excited to use their dotted soup mugs (image 1), which come in green, red, blue and orange. Check out our HL Food issue which has an entire Winter section packed with recipes just waiting to fill these mugs. Also hot on our radar is the Seville stoneware range (image 2), an elegant crockery range that's a natural fit with the Country Road napery we featured a while back. And no winter would be complete without a steaming hot cuppa in one of Woolies' fabulously bright solid porcelain mugs (image 3). They're available in duck-egg blue, red, blue and yellow – but we say, forget matching sets and grab one of each. These three ranges are available in selected Woolworths stores.
