Vera Wine and HUMBUG have paired up for a Christmas in July event

Hamilton-based wine shop Vera Wine and Newcastle CBD’s neighbourhood restaurant HUMBUG have joined forces to present Christmas in July.

“Gather your loved ones, lay out your ugly jumper, and get ready for a jolly good time.”

You’re invited to head into HUMBUG, get cosy, and join the two businesses for an all-inclusive festive dinner of four courses with matching wines.

“We are having fun with this event. Retro classics with a modern spin. We are thinking a red-prawn vol-au-vent as well as a homage to devils on horseback.

“Christmas always brings the conundrum of 'what's the best way to use up leftover ham', so we will be putting on a Monte Christo – a version of a croque monsieur made on French toast. We will do some mini versions with leg ham from Hungerford Meats and a healthy dose of maple butter. For the main dish, we will be serving roast duck with all the trimmings.”

The team will be pulling out all the bells and whistles with a Christmas tree set up as well as a few little surprises and treats up their sleeves for guests on the night.
