Christmas desserts recipes from around the world are coming…

Italian panettone, English Christmas log, Peruvian picarones, Dutch oliebollen, Spanish torrija. It’s not Christmas without a proper seasonal dessert! And this is why at Rosetta Stone we have asked some of London’s best restaurants to share with us their culture and their best dessert with our readers.

dolci nataleIn such a multicultural city as London, I find it marvellous to be able to experience any kind of cuisine, explore the cultural beliefs behind food  and the way people celebrate one of the most awaited times of the year: Christmas. Follow me in the next few days to discover new recipes from Michelin-Starred Peruvian restaurant LIMA London and Spanish AMETZA with Arzak Instructions, the Babylon-Roof Garden’s famous banana tart…and many more!

And if you have not made it in time to learn a new language for this year, Rosetta Stone has still made it possible for you to send Christmas cookies from around the world with wishes to friends and family in 10 different languages. So don’t forget to wow your contacts! Share a cookie or tweet one.

She understood at a very young age she would catch the travel bug so she started to learn English, French and Latin aged 11 and later studied German and Spanish. She has been living in London for the last 11 years. Not even her unforgettable sabbatical gap in French Polynesia could stop her from falling in love with Peru and Peruvian food, even though Neapolitan pizza remains always part of her DNA. Among her other passions there is also advertising, branding, fine dining and luxury and she blogs about these at the Circle of Luxury. She is currently learning Portuguese.
