Christmas dinner with the CFM team!

When we started dreaming about Christmas dinners with Chris and Kirsty we realised we were all longing for completely different styles of food! What is sure is that we all love food and we thought it'd be fun to share our Christmas menus with you all :)

Kirsty is from London, and spends Christmas with her parents: 'Our Christmas menu is really British, we first start with having a few Mimosa cocktails while we wait for the meal to finish baking! And it starts, we have the roast turkey, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, Brussel sprouts, Pigs in Blankets, homemade cranberry sauce.... and for dessert we have my mum's home made delicious Christmas pudding! So much joy in one meal!'

Chris is from London but his family is from Hong Kong: 'Christmas dinner at home is great when the whole family comes around as we have a Chinese hot pot. This consists of a simmering metal pot of stock at the center of the dining table. While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. we usually have a mix of food such as: veg, seafood, several types of bean curd, different finely cut meats and dumplings. What I love is that everyone has to huddle around as everybody is adding food to the hot pot. Be prepared though, you're likely to end up eating loads without realising until late into the evening! For dessert we always have a box of Fortune Cookies!'

Cléo is from Paris and that's where she spends most of her Christmas: 'We are very lucky in France because we celebrate Christmas twice! Once on Christmas eve where the menu consists mainly of homemade foie gras canapés as a starter and seafood as a main: delicious oysters, gravlax salmon, prawns etc... it is usually served with a nice potato salad and followed by cheese and a christmas log. But then comes Christmas day and we also have a roasted turkey served with chestnuts followed by cheese and a dessert too.'

Our favourite festive cocktails :)

Yes!! The festive season is upon us! Time to celebrate and over indulge! Here are our favourite cocktails, enjoy!!

Here is The Grinch Spritzer! With lime sherbet, Sprite and a dash of vodka, such a fun drink to start the celebrations!

Amazingly decadent and simply delicious the Aged  Egg Nog!

A bit of a classic but great to revisit with a seasonal fruit! The Blood Orange Mojito!

Simple yet sophisticated: Gin, Elderflower and Prosecco!

The Good Fortune! So nice to use pomegranate in a cocktail, they look like little rubies floating in the glass!

Salted Caramel White Russian... it speaks for itself :)

Happy Christmas everyone!!

I love the ghost style ballon, all you need to do is add a day glow stick inside the ballon before blowing it, spiders and their webs are just great too, Happy Halloween!
