It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
Christmas is the most epic time of the year for a lot of people, including myself! The holiday spirit, the overall joy in the air, the sumptuous food – everything is truly incredible during this festive season, so is our annual Christmas party!
Living in Bali, holidays are spent away from my son Jayman, and the rest of my family. I am, however, blessed to spend them with friends and people close to my heart.
With the Coronavirus pandemic still going on, this year’s celebration is far better than last year and it’s dedicated to our mums. It’s a beautiful time to recognise the families we cannot be with. A celebration of love and care for the families we cannot get to during this difficult time. Acknowledging the people who birthed us, and the people that made us who we are. And for that, cheers to all types of families!
In addition to the spirit of gifting, Christmas is full of food, love, and care. That’s what it’s all about.
Our annual Christmas party is so amazing, and we’ve got so much food, featuring (of course) my Christmas Feast – the tapas, dinner, and the desserts! Preparing what to serve for Christmas dinner can become a little stressful, and I find myself added to several WhatsApp conversations titled “Christmas dinner”. The number of dietary and plant-based requests starts to stream in, and it gets more painful as the days lead up to Christmas day. But with my Christmas Feast, the preparations went by like a breeze and everybody was happy. It’s such a joy.

With love from my kitchen to yours,
