Christmas in Cambridge
Don’t miss the boat!” says Gerla de Boer of Cambridge Food Tours. It’s time to start thinking about Christmas. Our Cambridge food columnist lists her favourite restaurants and bars in Cambridge for Christmas parties, dinner and celebrations…
As I was preparing for this article, an email popped up in my inbox and put a smile on my face. The subject of the email was: the reason why Santa has a naughty list! Those guys from SmokeWorks, know how it works with Christmas. We all like a treat once in a while!
There is so much talk about the healthy way of eating these days that we almost feel guilty to tuck into delicious food. What is the point of deleting all the naughty foods off your list if you cannot indulge in the fine things in life over the weekends and special occasions? Life is too short not to be enjoyed. Cherish every moment, especially with friends and family. Christmas is the time to be merry and for a foodie to pull out all the plugs.
Sometimes months of preparation and planning goes into this. With so many new places opening up in Cambridge, it might be a challenge to find the right places to shop and if you want an easy Christmas, where to dine out?
One thing is for sure if you want to secure a table at one of Cambridge’s restaurants during the festive season, you should book as soon as possible. Life can be pretty unpredictable these days, so please cancel your table if you can’t make it.
The same applies to Christmas parties. Looking for something different for your team or friends? A bespoke Food Walking Tour is definitely a Christmas event with a twist.
