‘TIs The Season To Be Tanned: Christmas in Australia

2 min read

You’re getting ready to warm up with some hot chocolate as the temperatures are lowering and the nights are becoming longer. As that first layer of snow falls, you’re planning secret Santa with your family and getting into the Christmas spirit. This is what I love. But oh wait, that’s not my reality this year (even though I heard it’s not cold in Belgium either). I’m traveling in Australia and will have to go a second year without my family this Christmas. Last year I still had a bit of cold in the mountains of Darjeeling, India, but this year I’m in full summer mode. That means water slides, barbecues, cold salads, air conditioning and walking around in flip flops and shorts all day, every day. This leaves me with the feeling of a shoe that doesn’t quite fit. Even though it is a reality for everybody living in the southern hemisphere, summer and Christmas do not seem like the most obvious match to me.

Today’s Christmas evening so I wanted to share with you some dishes that form a perfect vegetarian Christmas dinner, whether you’re a veggie or not. At our family home we usually go for a very low-maintenance Christmas dinner so I won’t be making all of these dishes but a couple of them will be definitely be enjoyed tonight.
