1st Jul 2018 Christmas In July Menu Ideas

We’ve put together a few recipe ideas for a Christmas in July feast.

Cocktail – Gluhwein

Some say you need an expensive wine to make the best mulled wine. Others say stick to something cheap. We say it all comes down the flavour, and our Cienna is the perfect ingredient for a gluhwein or mulled wine.

We recommend using a slow cooker for brewing and let the aromas tantalise your guests!

Entrée – Ginger Scallops

Kick off your Christmas in July feast with this simple dish. If you are buying fresh scallops then buy them the day before. Else most scallops are frozen now so you can buy well in advance and defrost the night before.

Remove the scallops from the fridge 20-30 minutes before you cook them so that they warm up in the middle and are much faster to cook.


Sides – Duck Fat Roast Potatoes

Duck roasted potatoes will change your life. Well…at least you’ll know the secret to making the most delicious roast potatoes of all time!

Once you have cooked your potatoes in the duck fat, allow the fat to cool slightly and then strain back into a container to remove impurities. You can reuse the duck fat many times over if kept refrigerated.


Main – Roasted Duck Breast

Head Chef Jarrod Kelley created this delicious red Roasted Duck Breast with Red Wine Cranberries & Pistachios recipe for Christmas in July celebrations. Make it and pair it with your favourite Brown Brothers red wine.
