We conducted a small poll in the office for their favorite foodie days in December. These were the top 3!
PS To get that winter mood going, we’ve added a few holly jolly foodie ideas, too! 🎅🏻
We hope you’re hungry 😉
December 15th – International Tea Day ☕️
There are quite a few tea fans in the office, and so International Tea Day was an easy winner! Replacing our coffee with a good ol’ cuppa is pretty healthy, less caffeine and, depending on how you take your coffee, less sugar and calories, but there’s much more to International Tea Day. On this day, we draw attention to the impact of tea production around the world, with a focus on fair trade in tea producing countries!
Feel like joining us in this celebration, but you don’t want to serve plain cups of tea? Give your guests an immunity boost by introducing them to a delicious Matcha tea! There are a whole lot of new teas available, too: Moringa, Chai, Flowers, etc.
Le Pain Quotidien is showing off their amazing Matcha Flower Latte!

December 18th – Bake Cookies Day (U.S.) 🍪
A full day dedicated to baking cookies? That’s right! With just one week to go until Christmas Eve, our American friends go all out baking tasty batches of cookies! Well… for us, Belgians, this seems the ideal excuse to join in and munch on some yummy Belgian chocolate chip cookies!
Go ahead and add homemade cookies as perfect pairings to tea, coffee or dessert. You might even choose ingredients that reflect your unique concept. Ewout and Anse from Oats Day Long did just that with their Oatmeal cookies!
30 December – Bacon Day 🥓
There’s no point in lying. We all know that we are going to gain weight during the holidays. Just embrace it: we all love a winter cheat day – scratch that – period! Craving some bacon? December 30th is for you!
COCO Donuts in Brussels shared their take on Bacon Day with their Maple Syrup and Bacon Donuts… Would you like to recreate this treat for your restaurant or cafe? Jamie Olivier shows you how in this video.
