Our Growing Edge – December 2016 – Festive Feeds


I am incredulous. How is it December already?

Yesterday marked the first day of summer here in the southern hemisphere, which seems upside down to those in the north. Here we like to celebrate the holiday season with beach visits, backyard barbecues and meals eaten al fresco. This is the season for festivities…which leads me to this month’s theme for Our Growing Edge: Festive Feeds.

December’s edition of Our Growing Edge is hosted by Rebecca from The Economic Foodie. 

Rebecca is an economics grad from Sydney, Australia. The Economic Foodie has been going for a year and a half and includes healthy, wholesome dishes that are gentle on the pocket. Think salads with lots of colour and flavour and mostly (but not strictly) vegetarian recipes. Her mantra “Less waste, more creativity” is great for any time of year, but particularly for December which can be a little more wasteful and indulgent.

If you are creating anything delicious for the holiday season, share it with Our Growing Edge.

Some ideas you could try this month:

  • Invent a recipe using up holiday leftovers
  • Make an edible gift
  • Host a holiday feast or festive dinner party
  • Cook a traditional Christmas dish for the first time
  • Share a family holiday recipe
  • Make a holiday drink or cocktail
