Who doesn’t love some indulgence around the Festive season? To make every mouthful even more joyous, we teamed up with the infamous baker, Lily Vanilli – author of three best-selling cookbooks, including 2018’s #BakeforSyriawith all proceeds going to support children displaced by the war in Syria – for two delicious Christmas recipes.

We visited Lily’s Columbia Road bakery where she shared two exclusive recipes with us; her take on a Christmas favourite, delicious Mince Pies and the quick, quirky festive Mini Meringue Christmas Trees.

Seasons Greetings,
