During the festive season panettone can be enjoyed anytime of the day. Serve it warm or even toasted with morning coffee. During the day it is the ideal festive accompaniment to a dry prosecco or spritz cocktail.
If having it as a dessert, or after dinner treat, serve it warm with a little gelato or whipped cream and match with a sweet, crisp, Moscato d'Asti.

Wine is so much more that just a drink. It takes on a meaning and a life of its own depending on the situation in which it is drunk and the people with whom it is shared. Of all the wine styles produced, this is never more true than with Champagne, a wine that has been at millions of celebrations globally and throughout history. With Christmas and new Years just around the corner this is the perfect excuse to indulge!

Our T-bone steaks are from Harvey Beef who produce the finest quality beef sustainably raised in the pristine natural environment of Western Australia. T-bone steaks are a hero piece of meat because there are two tasty cuts in one. The flavoursome sirloin on the one side of the bone and tender fillet on the other, its the best of both worlds! T-bone is at its most tasty when simply seasoned, then quickly pan-fried, grilled or barbecued.
