26 Nov Today is the last day you can register to win one of these 100 pairs of free tickets worth £44. Winners will be chosen on Monday and notified directly by email. (Please also note that if you want a personalised wine atlas at £99 in time for Christmas, it would also be wise to order it now.)

Taste of Christmas is a food and wine event to be held at London's exhibition centre Excel on the weekend of 3-5 Dec (just after our tenth anniversary champagne celebration, also in London).

Heston_at_TOCCelebrity chefs such as Heston Blumenthal, Jean-Christophe Novelli, Atul Kochhar of Benares and Antony Worrall Thompson will be appearing in the Taste Theatre. A dozen of London's top restaurants will be serving seasonal menus and hundreds of specialist food exhibitors will be selling their produce.

For wine lovers there are tutored tastings and in the Boutique Wine Market the organisers assure us that 'visitors can meet dedicated wine producers and purchase from a range of rare and hard-to-find vintages'.

They are offering visitors to 100 pairs of standard tickets to this event, each ticket worth £22. To enter a draw for a pair of these tickets (worth £44 in total) just go here and enter your email address.

This offer stands until Friday 26 Nov, and the draw will be made on Monday 29 Nov. The 100 winners will then be contacted directly by the exhibition organisers, who will send them e-tickets to Taste of Christmas.

Is there a down side to this? Just that the organisers will have your email address and will presumably be sending you details of other, similar events - but they assure me that they will not pass it on to third parties.
