CHRISTMAS IN JULY FARE AT THE ‘DOG’ GUARANTEES A UNIQUE WINTER FEEL
The tradition of celebration “Christmas in July” is all about enjoying a winter feel as the folk in the northern hemisphere get to do every year but in December.
“So why should they have all the fun,” says John Azar, whose Duke of Gloucester Hotel at Randwick will offer special ‘Yuletide’ fare throughout the month of July.
Mid-year festive celebrations have become an exciting addition to the southern hemisphere tradition, with restaurants and shops now widely promoting the theme.
Head chef at the Duke of Gloucester Anjan Prajapati has created a three-course $65 per head ‘Christmas in July’ menu that cater for groups of six or more, with a three-day advance booking requirement. It’s a value-packed offer, worth upwards of $90 per person.
Traditional Christmas fare, including roast beef, ham, turkey and pork, roast potatoes and vegetables, warm qui noa salad with baby spinach, roast pumpkin, beetroot, heirloom tomatoes, goats cheese and lemon vinaigrette and sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce guarantees a sumptuous treat in a true festive environment.
