Christmas in July

Blame Hollywood, the media or St Nick himself but most of the images associated with Christmas include snow, sleighbells and open fires – the polar opposite of prawns on barbies and backyard cricket many Antipodean households celebrate.

Next weekend you can get a chance to see how the other half live at Secret Foodies’ Christmas in July. Some background: Secret Foodies is a Sydney-based initiative that hosts dinners in secret locations around town. You get  a text on the day with instructions to the venue and nothing else – except the chance to meet new people and eat and drink a lot.

Last month Secret Foodies held their first Melbourne event with a champagne degustation, now they’re getting festive with event number two. Befitting such an occasion all participants are asked to bring a wrapped Kris Kringle present – but you’re not allowed to buy anything. Re-gifting is the go. The menu is a mystery but here’s hoping there’s turkey. And maybe bonbons. We can confirm Piper-Heidsieck Champagne will be flowing like eggnog.

Christmas in July is happening from 6.30pm – 10pm on July 26 and 27.
Tickets $95 and include a drink on arrival, three-course dinner and champagne. Bookings secretfoodies.com.au.
