I just love Dublin in December with all the Christmas lights and everyone celebrating the best month of the year, it's just magical. I made sure to have a few meet ups with my favourite people over food and drinks as much as I could. Probably my favourite night of the Christmas season was the 'official' FFID Christmas party when I invited a few friends up and cooked up a storm for them. We opened a magnum of craft beer (and lots of other drinks), ate, chatted, laughed and even played a foodie board game. A fun night was had!
On my return to Ireland I spent the evening in Delahunt with a group of bloggers thanks to Patrick and Russell from Gastrogays who had the idea of gathering us all. I really enjoyed meeting up with people who I had only ever spoken to online.
In December I also ran a Christmas Instagram challenge for 24 days and it was just lovely to go through all the pictures every day. I want to thank everyone who took part in it! I have selected my favourite picture for each day but I suggest you to have a browse at the #FFIDXMAS15 hashatag over on Instagram for a little bit of Christmassyness before properly starting back into the most depressing month of the year that is January!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are ready to tackle 2016. Even though I didn't want Christmas to end I feel fully energised and ready for a busy and exciting year ahead.
Happy New Year again!
