NORT Beer Lockdown Survival Kits

Is the truth this pit lock or what?! It’s going to be a push for Sydneysiders to make it to the end of August, but we can do it, people! Especially with a little love from NORT, Australia’s first female-founded 0% beer brand. have created the confinement survival kit to help Aussies balance alcohol while enjoying guilt-free lockdown activities like daily exercise, Zoom drinks with friends, or beer yoga at home (that’s drinking a beer while doing yoga, obviously).

The packs feature all four NORT varieties, including the award-winning 0% Refreshing Ale, and three new SKUs, including the world’s first 0% Pacific Ale, Tropical XPA and All Day XPA. As NORT drinkers, we can vouch for these new beers, and they’re definitely worth a try if you’re looking for a healthier alternative to a few after-work trips to school. At first sip we actually couldn’t believe the taste, proper XPA taste without the headaches. He packages are $35 and can be purchased online via the website linked below. Instagram followers can also win a free pack, follow @nortbeer for info.

Ragazzi at Home launches in Sydney

Boy do we love Ragazzi wine and pasta. It’s been far too long since we’ve hunkered down to eat some arancini, but like light shining from heaven, CBD Ragazzi Italian restaurant has just launched an at-home deal for the rest of Sydney’s lockdown. With four Ragazzi favorites to finish at home with new dishes available each week, Monday through Saturday looks great. Packages are available for pickup at Fabbrica sister store, via UberEats and for same delivery within 7km of the CBD. Menus are updated weekly via Ragazzi Instagram, so stay tuned! For this week we are being treated;

Burrata Ravioli, Brown Sage Butter – $32

  • “Classic and simple, the buffalo milk burrata is crumbled and seasoned with chives and lemon before being inserted into our egg pasta. Following the Italian track with the sage butter sauce. Recommend getting some Pecorino Romano to grate on top and maybe some chili oil if that’s your thing.” (V)

Homemade mortadella agnolotti dal plin, pistachio butter – $36

  • “The bologna is made in the restaurant from the jowls and bellies of Wessex saddleback pigs from Tathra Place in Taralga. Agnolotti dal plin is a Piedmontese specialty and the best of the stuffed pasta shapes. Pick up some Parmigiano Reggiano to shave off the top if you want to dress it up a bit.

Roasted Maremma duck rotolo, chard, duck broth – $45

  • “Not a Ragazzi menu without a Rotolo. Free-range ducks from the Maremma are dry-aged and roasted before being rolled with braised chard, a little Reggiano and served with a roast duck broth. Buy a loaf of Fabbrica sourdough to clean up the sauce.

Cavatelli, cime di rappa and anchovy ragout – $32

  • “Hand-rolled shape of semolina, sourced from Puglia and combined with a very Pugliese sauce. Cime di rappa is looking as good as ever right now. Add some ricotta salata and pangrattato to your shopping cart.”
