Internationally acclaimed pastry and dessert chef Christy Tania has opened her first permanent venue, Glacé, in Windsor. This stylish flagship store arrives in Melbourne off the back of a wildly successful pop-up in Melbourne earlier this year. The new space is a haven for sweet tooths. The chef’s much talked-about artisanal ice creams and sorbets is available to enjoy immediately in a waffle cone or cup, or to savour at home with 500mL takeaway tubs.
Glacé’s mouth-watering menu includes ice-cream flavours such as:
• Boozy Date (sticky date pudding soaked in rum with vanilla ice cream and salted butterscotch)
• Ginger Spice (vanilla ice cream with salted butterscotch and gingerbread crumble)
• Coffee Caramel (caramel milk chocolate ice cream with Kahlua and orange cinnamon crumble).
In addition, the menu features more traditional flavours such as 72% dark chocolate ice cream, strawberry passionfruit sorbet and coconut sorbet with coconut jam alongside other enticing mixtures such as Ispahan (lychee rosewater sorbet with raspberry sorbet) and Matcha Adzuki (green tea ice cream with sweet red bean paste).
Also on the menu is a range of exquisite artisanal frozen desserts including ice cream eclairs, ice cream macarons and Christy’s famous ice cream push pops, which combine cake sponge and layered ice cream. Proud Mary coffee is also available.

CHARCOAL FOOD TREND MAKES THE LAUNCH OF THE SPORTING GLOBE’S LATEST SEASONAL MENU
The team behind Australia’s ultimate sports bar and grill, The Sporting Globe, has launched a fresh new menu – with a broader appeal to health-conscious and trend-inspired foodies. The once-traditional grill menu now features more vegetarian and healthy options amongst its customer favourites, as well as a new frontrunner in the ‘charcoal food’ trend, the ‘All Black’ Parma. Designed to satisfy the whole family, the all-encompassing menu now also includes the Southwest Chopped Salad, Field Burger and Philly Cheese Steak Sliders. Grilled chipotle and garlic chicken, black rice, corn, jalapeños and avocado make up the Southwest Chopped Salad, while vegetarians can feast on the Field Burger – consisting of roasted Portobello mushroom, grilled haloumi, tomato, avocado, roquette, Spanish onion with tomato relish and garlic aioli. Philly Cheese Steak Sliders comfortably fit into The Sporting Globe’s Warm Ups menu – full of tender steak with melted Swiss Cheese and a tangy mayonnaise.
Taking on new global trend and the world of ‘charcoal food’ is Sporting Globe’s ‘All Black’ Parma. An ode to the neighbouring New Zealand Rugby team, the ‘All Black’ Parma is hand crumbed in every Sporting Globe kitchen with a Charcoal Brioche crumb, topped with salsa and cheese, complete with fresh avocado and house blackened corn salsa
