In Collaboration With Food Lover’s Market

The silly season is upon us. That time of year, we love and hate in equal measures. Holidays, fun, family, kicking back and relaxing, eating and drinking and being merry. It’s amazing. It’s also utterly exhausting. 

By now, most of us have our Christmas plans in place. We know who’s going where and who’s bringing what. Menu’s have been planned and the preparation is underway. It’s that one day of the year where we try to eat, drink and be merry with our families, in between the fighting and the laughinig and the sound of Christmas crackers being pulled, just all the chaos that is Christmas lunch.

We will be in Jozi again this Christmas, which means the responsibility for hosting Christmas lunch will once again fall to me. But I have already planned to make this firm family favorites for my family this Christmas.

Roasted Pumpkin, Sweet Potato, Feta Cauliflower Salad.
