If you live in New Farm, there’s no doubt you’ll be familiar with New Farm Deli – the Italian cafe and deli institution that operates out of Merthyr Village.
Run by owners, Vince and Maria Anello, and operating since 1975, New Farm Deli is an iconic neighbourhood landmark that continues to go from strength to strength.
There is something special in the air at New Farm Deli around Christmas time and we caught up with the team to tell us about it.
Q. Whats happening at New Farm Deli this Christmas?
A. As every other year, while our front-of-house team is super-busy at replenishing our shelves and cabinets with all the deliciously popular Christmas goodies, some of our staff it seems, are permanently perched on step-ladders hanging more of our beautiful panettone.
Our Kitchen staff led by Maria, are busy baking truffle shortbread, fruit mince tarts and gingerbread (to name a few), gathering turkeys, preparing stuffing and glazing hams. At our hamper headquarters, we are busy, busy, busy creating beautiful gift boxes and baskets to spread the love and joy of giving at Christmas
In short: Preparing everything essential to make your Christmas a gastronomic feast!
