The borders are starting to open up, and the traditional Christmas with friends and family is coming closer into view. But for many, travelling this Christmas may not be an option this year. We have an idea to help make it all seem that little bit more normal; we call it ‘Christmas in a Box’.
For the family members and friends who can’t be near this Christmas, we have a selection of recipes you can make, package up, throw in some tinsel and bows and post. Before you know it, you will be sitting around that zoom call together enjoying the same fruit cake or fudge.
Our brand ambassador Fast Ed has put together an incredible selection of recipes for you to try, the kinds of things that will travel well. And if you are lucky enough to be seeing loved ones in person this year, take it with you and wow them with cooking prowess.
Australia Post has Christmas post deadlines for mail, so remember to check them for your area and get in early.
