Aussie Christmas Tucker


Our Northern heritage is reflected in the foods we Aussies choose at Christmas. While salads and seafood may have gained great favour, many of us still choose the traditional hot roast turkey with all the trimmings. Thankfully there are signs that, at least in this area, times are achanging. Now it is quite acceptable to cook the turkey in the early morning cool and eat it cold at the Christmas table. Frozen Plum Pudding is also gaining a growing fan club. For those of us who like something festive to drink, a delicious cool bottle of excellent Australian wine or an icy cold beer complements perfectly, whether the meal be hot or cold.

Of course, the BBQ has always been the favoured method of many, especially if away on summer holidays. Or just to get out of the stuffy indoors, into the fresh air, in parks or down on the beach. And there is nothing quite like the flavour of roasted turkey, potatoes, and pumpkin cooked to golden perfection in a kettle oven while the heady aromas drift among the bright flower beds of the summer garden.

Australian Christmas

Over recent times in Australia the phenomenon of "Christmas in July" has gained wide popularity. Here, in the middle of our southern winter, a traditional Christmas meal with all the trimmings is served. Plus decorations, hats, crackers, carols, open fires and Christmas trees. It is celebrated by those of us Aussies who still feel that cold weather is more in keeping with the Christmas season.
