The highlight of the pop-up is the gingerbread bar, made with over 400 squares of gingerbread designed and baked by the Chef Justin North‘s Bécasse Bakery team.

Combining food, festivities and bubbles with a shopping experience, Chef Justin North of Bécasse Restaurant has created a signature Christmas tasting plate called the Four Tastes of Christmas.

    Yes you have reminded with the Mumm Champagne that New Years should include a few bottles. Also great ideas for food for that evening. Keep up the good work but someone has to do it!

  4. Oh, oh, oh, I’ve not got a sweet tooth but gingerbread is a favourite. A gingerbread bar – wow! And $15 for champers and nibbles. Not bad! I somehow think Fethiye is a long way from putting on events like this. :)

      The bar is amazing! And for $15, it’s great value to make a stop in between shopping. Hopefully you’ll make it here one day and I’ll show you around :)
