How to Eat Your Christmas Tree

Julia Georgallis

Evergreen trees are pillars of the winter – through extreme temperatures across the most bitter terrains, they stand tall and thriving, resilient in the face adversity. However, as the festive season draws to a close, these comforting conifers can often be found lining the streets, cast off and disused with wilted branches dotted across dustbins.

How to Eat Your Christmas Tree is a cookbook which explores the unsung edible heroes of our forests – the humble Christmas trees and their evergreen friends. Featuring recipes for ferments and preserves, feasts, sweet treats and drinks, you will learn how to extend the life of your beloved Christmas tree and turn them into delectable delights to enjoy throughout the year. From simple ideas such as infusing pine needles to make a delicious and warming Pine Tea to more lavish spreads such as a decadent Fur-Cured Salmon, How to Eat Your Christmas Tree is a refreshing and innovative cookbook that encourages you to think about food waste and to be more resourceful in an age of deforestation and climate crisis.



Julia Georgallis is an artisan baker who currently runs a nomadic microbakery called The Bread Companion. The How to Eat your Christmas tree project came about in 2015 as a collaboration between her and friend, Lauren Davies. Lauren and Julia were both interested in sustainability and wanted to collaborate to encourage people to think about food waste so they began to experiment with cooking with various Christmas trees and launched their first ever supper club series. Julia was born and raised in London, but now lives in Lisbon.
