12 Days of Taste Capricorn Coast

07 December 2022 / Agriculture / Food Facts

December is finally here, and the end of year festivities are in full swing!

As the countdown to Christmas begins, and food becomes high on the agenda for parties, gatherings, and celebrations, we have ditched the partridge and gone straight for the pears (or pineapples in this case), fillings your social feeds with delicious local recipes, suggestions, and gift ideas from Taste Capricorn Coast.

Keen to not only have you looking like the King or Queen of the kitchen this Christmas, but we also want you to feel confident in throwing around the ‘home-grown’ plug where you can, supporting your ‘chef de cuisine’ ranking among family and friends!

No strangers to bucking the trend as proud members of the ‘lucky country’, we have decided to utilise the age-old traditional tune ’12 Days of Christmas’ as we count down to Christmas Day (the Aussie way…).

Sharing recipes, giveaways, market days and more, we invite you to follow the flavours of the Capricorn Coast as we spread some indulgent and tasty joy…

On the first day of Christmas, the shops were so busy!

All I wanted to do was sip Pina Coladas (garnished with sweet local pineapple) at Great Keppel Island Hideaway overlooking the sea…

On the second day of Christmas, the kids are driving me craaaazy!

Let’s take a drive to visit the farm gate at Lush Lychees.

On the third day of Christmas, 14 people now coming for Chrissy tea!

Thank goodness for pre-prepared local Seafood Picnic Boxes from Pompano Seafood Deli (Phew!)

On the fourth day of Christmas, all this local produce – how lucky are we?

Boxing Day is going to be a cracker with cricket, prawns, and a scrumptious seafood sauce recipe from Muttleys Chutneys!

On the fifth day of Christmas, I’m off on my final gift shopping spree!

Everything is getting busier, so hitting the markets in Yeppoon and Emu Park will suit me to a tee…

Let’s download the Capricorn Coast Food Trail Map and go on a food foraging journey?

On the seventh day of Christmas, I haven’t sorted Christmas Day dessert yet – oh gee!

Easy Lemon Curd (made with farm fresh Dynamic Eggs) with ice-cream and local fruit will be a winner, don’t you agree?

On the eighth day of Christmas, the children shouted out with glee…

Because mum was cooking their favourite dinner – Pai’s Local Hot Pot courtesy of Pai’s Pantry!
