Our crayfish have been caught in the pristine waters of Western Australia. They are delivered fresh to our Fishco and steamed to perfection. They have a sweet, rich flavour and deliciously succulent flesh. Perfect for your Christmas entertaining!
If you require a celebratory centrepiece for your Christmas feast, look no further than a decadent Brillat Savarin crowned with a glorious, golden round of premium West Australian honeycomb. Brillat-Savarin is a decadent triple-cream cheese and is the perfect party pleaser. Deliciously creamy with a slightly chalky centre when young, the texture gradually breaks down until it can be scooped from the centre with a spoon. The rich, triple cream and crème fraiche flavour profile of this cheese acts as the perfect foil for the floral sweetness of the highest quality honeycomb.
