Merry Christmas from Germany!

Christmas is the time for yummy cookies, hot punch and delicious dishes. We asked our colleagues for their favorite Christmas recipes.

On December 3rd, Yasmin Messerer (Administrational Advisor, General Administration @ Mitsubishi Electric Germany) tells us how she starts the Christmas season:
