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!
