In Europe, people sit down to their scrumptious heavy Christmas meals of roasted meats, golden baked potatoes and heavy plum puddings drenched in custard. But in Australia, we can't normally muster up such voracious appetites because it is so damn hot.
But thankfully we don't have to miss out on all the traditional feasting because of the growing tradition of 'Christmas in July'. It is a winter creation we have fully embraced alongside winter solstice bonfires and mulled wine in front of warming fires.
But one must have the right food to fully enjoy the cold season. And one of the very best places in Sydney to celebrate Christmas in July is at the beautiful Sheraton on the Park overlooking Hyde Park.
Weekends will provide an even more sumptuous affair with mouth-watering whole suckling pig and garlic & rosemary infused roast lamb.
Dessert lovers this is all your Christmases come at once. You can expect a number of classic delights thanks to an endless selection of bespoke sweet options, including blackberry cheesecake, salted chocolate caramel tart and pear and berry yule log.
