How to plan a cheat’s Christmas lunch
Eatin’ food cooked by someone else ain’t cheatin’.
With Black Friday comes the official arrival of gifting season!
This year, put down the socks, forget the candles, and gift your foodie friends (us) something they’ll never forget (and never try to re-gift down the track).
The iconic Aussie Christmas distilled into a gin is back for another year, with five bundle options on offer to really stuff those stockings! There’s tea towels, marmalade and Breakfast Negroni preserve, and even Christmas puddings infused with the good stuff. Check out the range and place your order here.
You might have spotted their adorable lemon-laden van cruising about town or at an event, and now Margarita Margarita is offering the key ingredient to their irresistible margs in a pre-mix! Pick up a bottle as well as chic glassware, barware and even salt for the rim (essential!) or an all-in-one gift pack online here.
The ultimate win-win, Food For Everyone sells aesthetic posters (and more), featuring recipes by Australia’s most beloved cooks and chefs. Even better? Every purchase of a poster contributes, on average, 90 meals to those in need through Food For Everyone’s partnered charities including OzHarvest, Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, and SecondBite, and 50% of total profits go to food banks around the country. There’s a poster from Hellenika owner Simon Gloftis up there now for your friend who can’t resist the lure of zucchini chips!
