Merry Cooking with JLL

In these strange days, when the whole world has been turned upside down, we all are dreaming about getting cosy in our safe havens and waiting for that Christmas magic. And is there anything better to warm our hearts than a kitchen full of the smells of delicious food? Is there any better remedy than making comfort food for our loved ones and… ourselves?

This year, we have decided to make our Christmas charity project about cooking tasty traditional dishes but with a modern twist. You can do it on your own, you can to it with the kids, or with friends (mind that distance). And you don’t need to be a professional cook because we are teaming up with Klaudia Budny, MasterChef finalist, who has prepared some delicious, healthy, and easy to make recipes for the upcoming holiday season.

We hope that the taste of these dishes will fill you with the Christmas spirit!

You cook, and we pay! This year again we are making charity donations instead of gifts for our clients and business partners. We decided to make a contribution to the Siepomaga Foundation, which is collecting funds for oxygen therapy equipment for Polish hospitals. Number of your downloads will motivate us even more.

Merry Christmas and stay healthy!

Klaudia Budny

December is a great time for finishing off the year, especially one that has been as challenging as this one, by cooking our favourite seasonal dishes. The traditional Polish cuisine on Christmas Eve is something that we very much cherish. However, we can still give some of these recipes a modern day twist. So, especially for the JLL team, clients, and business partners, I am sending some simple recipes consistent with the idea of zero waste, and which are ‘healthy life-happy life’ recipes that you can prepare on your own, or with the family or friends. Holiday time wouldn’t be holiday time without desserts. So, I have included a recipe for truffles, which is great fun for children and adults alike, and can serve as an excellent gift for your loved ones. Enjoy!
