On the 11th blog of Christmas: Author Rebecca Raisin!

It's no secret that we LOVE Rebecca Raisin, so when wanting to do some fun Christmas interviews we knew exactly who to ask, we simply adore talking to her! Rebecca is absolutely wonderful and we couldn't wait to chat all things Christmas with her! So without further a do, on the 11th blog of Christmas we give to you some holiday fun with author Rebecca Raisin! What better Christmas gift could you possibly wish for? :)

1)      Best Christmas cracker joke?

I picked this one because I thought it might be relevant to the Blossoms!

What do Santa's little helpers learn at school?
The elf-abet!

2) Favourite Christmas song?

Amazing Grace just like Lil! I can blubber to that song on repeat all day every day!

3) Egg nog. Yay or Nay?

A shocking confession…I have never tried it! We don’t really have that here in Australia, though I really should try and make it!

4) Real tree or fake tree?

Fake! Less work!

5) Star or Angel at the top of your tree?

We are star people…

6) Advent calendars. A childhood tradition that must never be broken or just for kids?

Anytime is a good time for chocolate!!

7) Brussel sprouts. Yes please or no thank you?

Yes please! Par boiled, then fried in butter, topped with crispy pancetta and toasted almond flakes!

8) Favourite Christmas movie?

Hmmm, it’s between Love Actually and The Holiday…and Home Alone!

9) If Lil and Damon were catering your Christmas, what would be your perfect Christmas feast?

Roasted turkey stuffed with Lil’s special stuffing, roasted potatoes with rosemary and full bulbs of garlic, root vegetable tarte tatin ( Have added the link for this recipe because everyone lost their mind over it last Christmas!)http://www.jamieoliver.com/news-and-features/features/donna-hay-christmas-recipes-root-veggie-tart/) green beans with ruby red pomegranate seeds and raspberry vinaigrette, brussel sprout gratin baked in ricotta, baby carrots wrapped in prosciutto and fried in butter and then drizzled with honey, white bread sauce, and a red wine jus. For dessert fresh berries mixed with broken shards of meringue, dolloped with double cream, and passionfruit pulp, and cherry Christmas pudding! OMG I AM HUNGRY! 

10) Sarah from "The Bookshop on the corner" and "The Little Bookshop on the Seine" spent her first Christmas away from home in the magical city of Paris. If you were to spend Christmas away from home, which city would you choose to spend it in?

I’d choose Paris too! It’s like a winter wonderland of joy and snow and so many foodie treats. The city of love comes alive with street markets, and outdoor ice skating rinks, and carousels on every corner! A walk along the Seine, to the bookshop, is where I’d go…

Thanks for having me here, Blossoms! And have a lovely Christmas everyone!
Love Bec xxx
