We’re truly fortunate to experience Christmas in the summer here in Australia, basking in the warmth of the sun. However, there’s an undeniable charm to a snug, traditional winter Christmas that captures our hearts. Even with the frosty temperatures in July, it presents a wonderful opportunity to create amazing memories with a delightful Christmas in July gathering at home. Or you can just enjoy the comforting deliciousness of a roasted chestnut or two.
On December 25th, as most of the world revels in winter’s festivities, we Australians indulge in a unique Christmas lunch that embraces the essence of our sunny climate. The table is adorned with an abundance of fresh seafood, delicious, glazed ham, and vibrant, light salads that perfectly complement the warmth of the season. And let’s not forget the iconic Australian desserts like pavlovas, offering a delectable and sweet touch to our celebrations.
However, Christmas in July presents a great opportunity for us to experience the flip side of Christmas food. As the chilly temperatures envelop us, we embrace heartwarming dishes that are rich with spices and flavours, providing the ultimate comfort in the midst of winter.
At Market, we take pride in offering an abundant selection of fresh and seasonal foods available from our wonderful stallholders. With such a diverse range of ingredients, you can easily prepare for your ultimate Christmas in July feast and create a delightful culinary experience to cherish with your loved ones.
