Ah Christmas, the wonderful time of year when office party venues across the country suffer the mass delusion that a plate of out-of-season tropical fruit chunks are a worthy gluten free substitute for a sticky toffee pudding when it comes to soaking up too much cheap champagne!
Because we know that in these austere times, some of you will have budget-saving festive shindigs as early as November, we are opening this year’s Sad Banana Awards early!
We are looking for the most sorry looking fruit salads you are served this festive season in place of your rightful afters. All you have to do is take a quick picture, and upload it to twitter, instagram or my Facebook page with the hashtag #fruitisnotapudding, and you could be in with a chance of winning one of two *exclusive* #fruitisnotapudding wooden spoons to give to your venue, plus a little compensatory coeliac/allergy-friendly treat for you.
The winner will be chosen based on the diner we feel most sorry for, whilst we smash through a box of homemade macarons on Christmas Eve.
