Wishing you a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

On behalf of all the team at Home Make It, I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We would like to thank you for your continued support and loyalty in 2013. Our team would also like to welcome all our new customers over the last twelve months. We look forward to continue sharing our passion and knowledge for homemade food & beverages.   

2014 is shaping up to be another big year for Home Make It. You will see some new products on our shelves, new dates for our D.I.Y Workshops and more participation in Melbourne's most iconic festivals and community events.


No Italian Christmas is complete without the pleasure of sharing a panettone with family and friends. In fact, the popularity of panettone in Italy has spread internationally, and Australia is no exception. We are told that more than one hundred million Italian-made panettone are now sold worldwide.  

Panettone literally translates to "big bread" and is a sweet fermented bread. But where did panettone orginate? The answer to this question and all the questions you ever had about traditional panettone have been answered in a recent article titled "What we don't know about Panettone and what no one will ever say". It's a fascinating history and account by Stanilslao Porzio who is a Milan-based writer and gastronomy expert.  


Following the huge success of our Advanced Homemade Wine Making Course in 2013, we are now taking bookings for our 2014 Advanced Homemade Wine Making Course (Online or you can book directly with our retail assistants in stores). Take advantage of our "early bird" offer if you book and pay before Christmas. Normal price $495.00. Our special Christmas offer to you is $350.00. We will cap the bookings at 12 people per location, so don't miss out.
