Winter's Easing, Eyes on Spring

~ End of Salami Season Sale ~

Salami season is slowly grinding to a halt as the days get longer & the temperature gently climbs. We still have plenty of salami stock in store for a last gasp curing run, and need some shelf space for our next seasonal produce lines. So we have slashed 15% off our Salami/Sausage range instore and online. From Casings,to netting, spices, to string & even our fabulous Fabio Leonardi mincers. It's a bargain too good to pass up. So be it one more batch this year or stocking up for next year, come in and see us soon. This sales ends 13/08/2017.  


~ Salami All Year Round ? ~

Salami season is over for most of us, but it doesn't have to be ! At our Clayton store we have a secret upstairs, a stainless steel playground for all you DIY foodies. Our demo room is for hire all year round and features three large stainless steel preparation tables, two large Fabio Leonardi electric mincers, two large Fabio Leonardi fillers, a generous double sink wash up area & last but not least a controllable curing cabinet where you can cure your cured goods ALL YEAR ROUND. When it's in the middle of a scorching Melbourne summer, the northerly wind is blasting a 45 degree wind in your face...you can still pop into our Demo room, make some Salami & cure it at 12 degrees if you want to. It's a great spot to gather some friends, family, or even a group from your sports or hobby club to make some foodie magic happen. Give one of our home Make It team a call at our Clayton store for more details or to make a booking.     

Our Stainless steel soldiers ready for your recipe. 

Salami of all sorts curing in our curing cabinet. 


~ Nice Slice ~


Your cured meats are all done & you want to show them off, but to get that slice thickness just right is hard sometimes and can take some time. Maybe you are in need of a quality slicer? Our Italian made Essedue slicers might be just what you need in the kitchen. With all stainless steel, fine thickness control & a real quality motor, these will making slicing a breeze - dont forget until the 13th August they're 15% off!


~ The Joy of Chestnuts ~ 

Winter screams out for sitting around a fire with friends, and what's better than sitting around a fire roasting chestnuts ? It's akin to the adult version of marshmallows, no fire is complete without them for many of us. Grab one of our Chestnut pans, cutters, some chestnuts & start a fire. You won't regret it. 


~ Seal Away ~ 

It's that exciting time when alot of the fruit of our winter labors are coming together & are ready to consume. Salami, Pancetta, Capocolli & Olives are all cured & screaming to be eaten. But we can't eat them all at once & want to preserve them in the condition they are right now. Enter our SICO vacuum sealers. These quality Italian machines are the best home use vac sealing machines you can buy & will seal away your goods in an air free environment to keep all your hard work fresh. On top of that, these are included in our 15% off Salami Sale. A good time to buy indeed. 


~ Cade's Brew News ~

I've been a busy little squirrel lately, sealing away packets of fresh pungent hops. But these aren't for me, they are for all you brewers out there. We've got full fridges, and don't forget we now carry 1kg bulk hops in 5 of our most popular styles. It's a real saving for your brew wallet!   

All yeast great and small, we have them awaiting your recipes here at Home Make It. Be it a lager, an Ale or even some of our Yeast Bay or White Labs Sour vials for you sour beer fans, we've got something that will make your recipe shine.   

In the last while we have just brewed another batch of our Pale Ale & our IPA wort kits. Made with all fresh ingredients and brewed locally at the lovely Craft & Co in Collingwood, these Fresh Wort Kits produce great all grain beer without the brewing part. A great option for those just getting into home brewing or an experienced brewer short on time.


We are weeks away from a brand new Viking Malt shipment, and we have a fair few new exciting lines on their way. Watch this & our social media pages for more news.
