Just yesterday, I was at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf TTDI with a whole bunch of bloggers and friends to feast on their exclusive Christmas Menu. Developed by award-winning Chef Johnny Loh, the festive offerings are a mix of traditional desserts inspired by European classics. It was a morning of fun as well, as we got to decorate and create our own Gingerbread man. Check out the offerings below.

Award-winning Chef Johnny Loh was present at the event, to explain the festive menu which he developed. During the event, he did showcase how the gingerbread man's dough is being made. Lots of informative eye opening tips were being shared.

"It's been a privilege to develop this festive menu with the idea of Joy behind it - as a chef, I've always wanted people to feel good, even happy when they taste my food," said Chef Johnny. During the exclusive ginger dough-making workshop, Chef Johnny shared his expertise with bloggers, guiding them through the steps for creating the perfect base from which to make gingerbread biscuits, a classic offering that's also available on the festive menu.

In addition, a host of Limited Edition gifts are also available, from Holiday Blends and Coffee Duets to Gift Sets that hope to warm the hearts of all, and they can all be enjoyed in exclusive mugs and tumblers which make wonderful presents too.
