Commercialised events such as Valentines Day or Christmas In July are the perfect excuse for a wee bit of indulgent eating. I don’t really care for either but I’ll always welcome a celebratory meal.
If you’re after a restaurant which takes ‘Christmas in July’ seriously or if you just want a hearty winter feast, then Lowenbrau Keller is worth checking out.
As guests of Lowenbrau Keller and Zing PR, Helen, Suze, Lisa, Karen, Squishies and I were recently invited to a sneak peek at their Christmas in July menu.
Throughout this month, weekly delicacies will be on offer, including venison or slow roast short ribs in the first week, braised lamb shanks or wine marinated beef roast in the second week, Franziskaner bier goulash or simmered veal cheeks in the third week and turkey schnitzel or stuffed capsicum with pork and herbs in the last week; plus other festive specials.
In true food-blogger style, we were naturally fed almost all these dishes in the one night!
I think the pictures speak for themselves –
P.S. You must end the feast with some kaiserschmarrn which is served with cinnamon ice cream! Kaiserschmarrn is a traditional Austrian / Bavarian dessert, basically consisting of chopped pancakes with caramelised raisins (or cherries or plums or apples) and toasted almonds.
