Delicious Christmas Pudding

December 12, 2016

What Christmas would it be without a proper Christmas Pudding?? Silly question, I know! If someone asked me that today I would most likely roll my eyes and think “poor guy had a concussion…” However, if you asked me the same question 20 years ago, I would stare at you like you just fell of Mars. No idea! Back then I lived in Europe (born in Poland, with a short, 5 year long stint in Berlin) and my Christmas was…

So, are you…
