Hold those resolutions!
The New Year may be here, but that won’t stop us from living up our final days of freedom with drool-worthy bites and cocktail delights…
If you’re also dreading your return to work (don’t you dare start thinking about your email inbox), here’s six epic eats to enjoy before the holidays are through.
1.Cappellacci from OTTO Ristorante
If your taste buds get to enjoy anything before that new year health kick begins, it NEEDS to be a serve of this cappellacci from OTTO, made with delicate ricotta and feta filled pasta with Longreach lamb shoulder, roasted onion, rapini and gremolata.
2. Lamb Ribs from Ma Pa Me
To say that the meat on these sticky Tasmanian lamb ribs from Ma Pa Me falls off the bone is an understatement. Slow cooked for 10 hours and coated in a sticky sauce of chinikiang black vinegar caramel, shallot and garlic crunch, coriander root and red chilli, these ribs are incredible.
3. Pizza Fritta from Popolo
Think warm, fluffy strips of Popolo’s signature long-fermented dough, deep fried and enjoyed with creamy stracchino cheese and thin ribbons of prosciutto. If this doesn’t have you drooling, we don’t know what will!
4. Maclovin Balls from Brooklyn Depot
If you share our love for mac n cheese, you’re going to want to run (not walk!) to Brooklyn Depot for a piping hot serve of their fried Maclovin Balls. Crispy on the outside and perfectly gooey on the inside, there’s no greater way to bid farewell to the silly season.
5. Tartufo e Prosciutto Pizza from VICI
Wood-fired pizza fanatics, this one’s for you! The perfect combination of white base, black truffle oil, thin ribbons of prosciutto di parma and fior di latte cheese, this pizza from VICI is love in every bite.
6. Cookie Sundae from Ben & Jerry’s
New kids on the block, Ben & Jerry’s, have already stolen our hearts with this decadent double cookie sundae. Prepared with two freshly baked cookies, any flavour ice cream, hot fudge sauce and fresh whipped cream, it’s our new sweet obsession.
