Merry Christmas

 may God fill your heart with His Love. 



We are officially in the season of Advent, which is the four weeks leading to Christmas day. During this period, Christians prepare for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ and also reflect on and anticipate His second coming.

Part of this preparation involves keeping an advent calendar, which starts on the first day of December. Each day on the calendar has a window which opens to unveil a favour of some sort.

The Pretend Chef Advent foodie Calendar will each day, feature recipes in celebration of Advent. These are dishes that you can incorporate into your Celebration menu for Christmas lunch/dinner or party, wedding parties, cocktails, end-of-year parties, house guest entertainments etc.

Wishing you and yours the best life has to offer, this Christmas season and into the New year—The Pretend Chef.
