It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and although it may be summer in Australia, we still love our Christmas roasts. Roast turkey is likely to be your Aunty’s favourite dish to celebrate with everyone, year after year, but if you can convince her to try a slight variation, or even one of these other meaty feasts, the extended family is sure to thank you for it. Have a look below at our Christmas countdown and our favourite roasts, and choose one to share with your loved ones this festive season.
