SUGAR AND SPICE FOR CHRISTMAS
Kay Tommerup from Tommerup’s Dairy Farm in the Scenic Rim has just crafted some delicious, limited edition dairy products, especially for Christmas. Get ready for it – there is whisky butter double cream and brandy double cream.
The star of the show is, drum roll, Tommerup’s award-winning cultured salted butter with a sugar and spice twist. They have all been crafted to go perfectly with your Christmas pudding and cakes. It is the taste of Christmas with sprinkles of cinnamon sugar spices and salt.
This year has been extremely tough for many producers in the Scenic Rim, with the Tommerup’s not only dealing with the impacts of COVID -19 on tourism in the area but also the ongoing drought. This is just one of the many ways they are offering a slice of their farm to visitors and ‘city folk’.
The products will all be available at Tommerup’s Dairy Farm Christmas Farm Gate on December 5 from 9 am to 12.30 pm

LIKE THE LOOK OF THESE MORISH COCKTAILS?
You’ll find them at newly opened Comuna Cantina. Bringing Latin American flare back to Brisbane City, Comuna Cantina recently opened in the Dexus Building.
It’s from restauranteur Tim Johnson who has established The Corbett Collective venues. Diners can expect the same delicious Latin American street food and Instagrammable cocktails that Comuna Everton Park is loved for, with three new signature cocktails joining the mix: Crème Brulee, Lemon Meringue and Strawberry Cheesecake.
Comuna City sits adjacent to newly opened brother café, Mr Claude, with the original Corbett & Claude Italian restaurant just down the laneway off Elizabeth Street.
