It is that time of the year when the world gets into the festive mood; its time to celebrate Christmas and bring in the New Year. The Imperial, New Delhi celebrated Christmas Banter on 16th December and I was invited to the event. This was my second Christmas Banter celebration with them and I love the event.

It is the Season to Celebrate!

The high tea had traditional Christmas goodies ranging from Christmas Pudding with Brandy sauce, Strawberry and Passion fruit jelly; Pandoro bread with Mascarpone cheese; scones filled with clotted cream, lemon curd and strawberry jam; dipped chocolate strawberry; minced pie and more with Mulled wine. I loved the pudding and the dipped chocolate strawberry!

Lemon Posset was a Delight!

Chef Prem K Pogakula – Executive Sous Chef The Imperial New Delhi interacted with the bloggers and they shared the recipe of making of Lemon Posset, Flambéed Christmas pizza and 5 ingredient chocolate brownie  with us. Last year they shared a simple recipe of making a mug cake which even I was able to do! I quite enjoy their recipe sharing session.

Then Chef Rakesh Rana weaved his magic, he made his special Flambéed Christmas Pizza in the outdoor wood fired oven at San Gimignano.

I was skeptical about a pizza which had chocolate, raisins and other such stuff. I was anyway so full by then. I took a slice to share with others. But in the end, I ate the whole slice, it was delicious! ho knew Pizza can be a dessert too!
