Merry Christmas!

Christmas provides the perfect backdrop against which to reflect on the year that has been, on experience gained, lessons learned and on challenges triumphed.  It has been a big year for Our Kitchen and so I thought it important to celebrate our achievements, our own unique triumphs.  We continue to feature in a variety of media, from the web to magazines and the radio, and at the end of July we turned one, no mean feat considering our humble beginnings.  The highlight of the year however was coming together as a team to represent Our Kitchen and Fisher & Paykel at Taste of Auckland.  Opportunities like this are few and far between for the blog, given that we work on different islands and are divided by the Cook Straight, so we did everything we could to make the most of it.  We worked hard, not only as colleagues but also as friends, and were all humbled by the experience.

And so here we are, the 1st of December.  We all hope that your year has been as successful as ours and that you too can sit back and reflect on your triumphs, however big or small they might be.  A big Merry Christmas from the team at Our Kitchen.  We look forward to sharing another year with you all.
