Dear Home Chefs,
'Tis the season to be…cooking! Yes, we know just how you feel. It's that joyful (albeit stressful) time of the year when you start to exhibit signs of festive anxiety, brought on by the pressure of having to plan a succession of meatlicious feasts and prepare a long grocery checklist. Uncle Jason still talks about the epic lamb shank you baked two Christmases ago. And did we mention cousin Arielle can't wait to relive the taste of those twice-cooked Wagyu beef ribs you whipped up last New Year's Eve?
Meaty indulgences always steal the show at the holiday feast. Finding great produce like Australian beef and lamb - that's half the battle done. Fret not, help is on the way. Here's a guide on reliable retailers that have launched a slew of festive deals and promotions so you can get the best cuts of beef and lamb for your cooking needs.
