Australian Christmas is all about adaptation. Grilled prawns and fruit salads grace our lunch spreads alongside — or in place of — the roasts and bread sauces of colder climes. Among all the ancient traditions that we’ve shed, one remains firmly in place: the Christmas pudding. The intensely rich, suety dessert was obviously designed for a world in which December is the dead of winter — not that that has stopped us from enjoying slice after slice every year. We love the harmoniously layered flavours of the classic pudding, but being the Brownie Pioneers we decided many years ago that it was time for some Aussie innovation. Inspired by memories of Christmas past, we’ve developed a line of Dello Mano Luxury Brownies that incorporate our favourite elements of this timeless treat.
Mother’s Day is that one special day of the year when the most important women in our lives are celebrated. It’s always nice to give our supermums a restful break. After all that our mums have done (and keep on doing) for us, isn’t it about it we give back?
We’ve rounded up 5 ideas you might want to try. Take a look:
1. Start the day right with a great meal.
As a child, my siblings and I would let mum sleep in and bring her breakfast in bed. Sure we left the kitchen in a big mess and we served her a burnt toast (or two) but she loved it nonetheless!
When was the last time you made mum a meal? Bring out that inner chef in you and whip up something extra special for the most important meal of the day. Not a kitchen wiz or don’t have the time? Don’t fret, treat mum to Dello Mano Cafe for breakfast or lunch instead. She’ll love the ambiance and the meals that are fit for a queen.
2. Schedule a spa date
Nothing says pampering like a relaxing retreat to a spa. Let mum soak up the stress and worries away, let the massage and treatments take her mind off the daily hustle and bustle—make her feel beautiful and cared for. Read more…
