As the rain falls in this cold wintery London city its difficult to imagine the horrific bushfires, drought and record breaking temperatures continuing to destroy large parts of Australia.

Australia Day takes on a new significance this year and we are banding together in true Aussie style to help raise funds for The Bushfire Appeal.

On Saturday 25th January we’ll be hosting a fundraising dinner at Lantana London Bridge with 100% of profits going to help affected communities, volunteers, fire and rescue services via the Bushfire Appeal. Tickets are available through Design My Night (click here), or email izzy@lantanacafe.co.uk.

Tickets cost £40 and include a welcome cocktail and a special menu of some Aussie inspired dishes, including:

Damper with whipped Vegemite butter
Tempura prawns with lemon myrtle aioli
Slow cooked pork belly with grilled pineapple, macadamia dukkah, kimchi & gochujang aoili
Tim Tam chocolate tart with creme fraiche

*We can cater for any allergies and dietary requirements.

Australian wines and beers will also be available to buy and enjoy.

In addition to our Australia Day dinner fundraising evening, all three Lantana restaurants will be serving Aussie themed brunch delights throughout the weekend of 25th – 26th January. A discretionary £2 added on each bill will be donated to the Bushfire Appeal. Guests are welcome to round up, down, or remove as they wish.

Make sure you save room for our Cherry Ripe lamingtons inspired by a unique Australian chocolate bar. They are delicious morsels of chocolate coated vanilla sponge, filled with cherry jam and rolled in pink coconut. £1 from the sale of every lamington from the 24th January until the end of February will also go to The Bushfire Appeal.
