Warm up with Australia Day 2017

January in Pittsburgh: Freezing Cold, darkness, no barbecuing.

January in Australia: Warm and Welcoming, beaches full of sun-bathers, summer gatherings for great gastronomical excitement surrounding the mid-summer Australia Day celebration.

We cannot fly you Down Under, but we can share a small piece of Australiana with five Australian wines and five courses prepared by Kate Romane at Black Radish Kitchen.  Warm up your January with us!
