My scouring of the internet has found you a proper Christmas cracker. If you want to get your festive food going, Okens Kitchen are throwing an evening of festive stollen making, along with festive nibbles and mulled wine. They’re promising music, decorations, and plenty of stollen baked with home made marzipan. You can also take your own drinks to make a proper evening of it.
