From Portugese Picked Pork to Greek Shortbread, we begged our retailers to share their favourite family recipes that remind them of Christmas at home.
For a lot of our local Stockland retailers who are first and second-generation Aussies, food is an important way to teach the next generation about their heritage – especially at Christmas time.
“The kids think it tastes a little weird now, which is the same when I was younger”, said florist Sandra – whose family is originally from Portugal. “But now that I’m grown up and living overseas, all this food reminds me of my mother and my Christmases at home. Hopefully it will be the same for my daughter one day – I’m making her learn to cook it now!”
To celebrate the wonderful diversity within our community, we asked our retailers to share their favourite secret family recipe that reminds them of home.
Check out the delicious festive offerings from all around the world and maybe this year, you too can add something a little different to your family celebrations!
