‘Dine at Mine’ for Camp Quality

dine_at_mineGet ready to cook and bake for a good cause. Dine at Mine is a major new fundraiser for Camp Quality, in support of children living with cancer and their families.

The concept is simple. During August 2013, invite family and friends to a home dining experience and ask them to donate what they would’ve spent eating out to Camp Quality. All funds will help create a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia.

Now that’s a good excuse to get back in the kitchen.

To register as a Dine at Mine host, simply visit www.dineatmine.org.au or call 1300 730 787.

Cheeky Rascal Mulled Cider

Cheeky Rascal Mulled CiderCheeky Rascal, the brand behind boutique cider house ‘Rebello’ on Australia’s Mornington Peninsula has launched a mulled apple cider for winter.

Made using local in-season apples from Victoria, without the use of concentrates, flavourings or additives, Cheeky Rascal Mulled Cider makes use of an innovative pyramid spicebag – like a tea bag – with cinnamon, star anise, dried orange, clove, nutmeg, vanilla bean and all spice berry.

It’s easy to prepare. Warm up the cider in a saucepan with the spice bag, taking care not to let it boil and simply enjoy.
