A Xmas Food & Flower Tasting Plate

How delicious is steak served with the right bodied red, or a creme brulee with a perfectly matched sticky dessert wine? It is common to pair food with wine, but what about food with flowers? Well in the spirit of the Christmas holidays, we thought we’d have a go at matching typical festive Australian fare with flowers. And here is the result…we are positive that these pairings will only enhance the taste of your Christmas dinner this year!

Prawns and Heliconia

This summer try pairing chilled prawns with cheeky Heliconia flowers straight from the North Queensland tropics. A match made in seafood and sun heaven!
