Christmas is the time of the year where we all gather together! We share festive meals with our loved ones, meals that can be quite luscious or made with just few ingredients. All made with Christmas love! Regardless of whether you’re preparing a feast with many elaborate dishes or just a couple of simple recipes, we’ve got plenty of ideas for you!

During this workshop, we will be preparing a festive vegetarian menu, with a centrepiece that both vegetarians and meat-lovers will enjoy. We will help you organise your festive prep in advance and give you lots of ideas on how to repurpose your leftovers.

Join our festive workshop and meet Lida, Oliveology’s resident chef and anthropologist. Get creative, learn new techniques and dig in unique festive dishes that will make you and your guests blissfully happy!

The workshop includes learning basic cooking skills, tasting ingredients and participating in every step, from prepping ingredients to cooking and plating. You will leave with a selection of the recipes and a 10% discount voucher for Oliveology’s products. And at the end of the workshop we all sit around the table and share the food we’ve made!
