Jigsaw Actually… Meet Andre, Head Chef

My Christmas agenda will consist of skiing, drinking mulled wine and picking favourites from a chocolate selection box. In past years I’ve had to work the festive season, cooking other people’s Christmases feasts in various hotels and restaurants. This year I’ll be taking a week in Sweden to spend Christmas with my girlfriend’s family. And the best part? Not having to lift a finger in the kitchen.
Jigsaw Actually meet Andre

What is on your Christmas wishlist this year?

I’ve worn my current ones out so a new pair of trainers would be great. I also live in my work clothes so a new collection of smart pieces is always welcome.

What is the best present you've ever received?

A soft, fluffy personalised dressing gown.

And the worst?

A Lynx Africa Gift Set. It just reminded me of a bus-full of high school boys.

What is your favourite Christmas ballad?

“Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues. I may not know the lyrics but I always hum along!

What are your top-tips for Christmas shopping?

Never leave it to December. Get in a month early to avoid the pressure and mania of sales and crowds.

The smart tailored suit is perfect for a special occasion and suits my style of being minimal and muted. When it comes to gifting, I like to follow the same principle. The sunglasses would be for a mate as they are versatile, whilst the resin bracelet is a cool subtle statement that both my mother and sister would love.
