Christmas is the best period of the year and this year, for me, Christmas has arrived early. I was invited to the Waitrose party to celebrate #ChristmasTogether. The venue (Bull & Last, a historic pub) was beautifully decorated. The amazing food served, the Christmas tree, the light and the wonderful people have made the place so warm and festive.
I fell in love with all the food in that room like roast vegetables, risotto, ravioli, italian panettone, tartines, cheese, fruits and chocolate cake.
We also prepared amazing cocktails (after a cool demo :-)), my favourite was Gingerbread Martini.
To celebrate the joy of being together, Waitrose has launched a new TV campaign #ChristmasTogether wherewith you can share Christmas pictures and moments on your social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) and have the chance to win some amazing festive prizes, including some cool kitchens applies.
Here you can find more informations.
Thank you Waitrose for the event, it was fun and Happy early Christmas 🙂

Simple Oceanic Chia Recipe
This is such a simple but beautiful chia recipe for a morning, oceanic chia pudding. Chia seeds are packed full of nutritional goodness and the spirulina powders are used to boost the recipes' already amazing health properties ( and create the gorgeous colours). The maple syrup and vanilla create a lovely subtle sweet flavour, low in refined sugars.
For the natural colours (per jar)
Mix all the chia ingredients together and stir well. Allow to soak for at least 30 minutes stirring well to avoid clumps (best overnight in the fridge).
To stick fruits/veggies on the side of the jar, make sure to cut the fruit/veggie really thin and make sure the glass is dry.
When chia pudding is ready, divide into three equal portions and add the green spirulina in one and the blue in the other and mix well (you will end up with three colours: white, blue and green)
Layer them all and top with any toppings you like.
