Ximena regularly tempts us with the deliciously fair recipes on her popular blog www.fairtradeliving.com. Written alongside her husband – not technically a Fair Trade lady but wonderfully Fair Trade too – they both guarantee to make every recipe as ethical, environmentally friendly and seasonal as possible. One tried and tested favourite of ours is the Bolivian Papas a la Huancaina (Potatoes with a spicy Fair Trade Nut Sauce), produced for National Nut Day 2014 (don’t quote us on that).
Ximena is also a Fair Trade beacon in her local village Edenbridge, where she recently played an integral part in the 10th anniversary celebrations of the town becoming a Fair Trade town, as well as organising and taking part in other fundraising and awareness events all over the UK. If you’re into Fair Trade and fair living, this fair lady has her finger right on the pulse!
