While sampling stone fruit

Here's a pre-Christmas event that ticks the right boxes

  • Buying a Christmas present

  • A family outing in the fresh air

  • Tasting the first lush stone fruits of the season

  • And last but not least a meet and greet with celebrity Alice Zaslavsky.

    During her time in the MasterChef kitchen, Alice created a variety of delicious dishes that wowed the judges. Who could forget her Quattro Formaggi Pizza and Twice Cooked Tongue with Spiced Sweet Potato Puree and Spicy Capsicum Salsa!

    This family-friendly event is the launch of Alice Zaslavsky's new cookbook The Joy of Better Cooking. Life-changing skills and thrills for enthusiastic eaters.

    The Joy of Better Cooking has all the inspiration and hand-holding you need to relax into the rhythm and truly enjoy cooking for your family and friends.

    The event will be held on Sunday, December 11th at The Orchard at Montague, Australia's leading fresh fruit grower which holds a special place in Alice's heart. To celebrate the arrival of the Montague stone fruit season, guests will be given complimentary fresh stone fruit to take home and enjoy with every book purchased.

    When: Sunday 11th December, 2:00-4:00pm

    Where: The Orchard at Montague, 18 Horswood Rd, Narre Warren North VIC 3804 (Travel to the end of Horswood Road and turn right at the roundabout).
