National Lamington Day is coming up on 21 July, and there’s a lot to celebrate this year with Kytons announcing their two brand-new native flavoured lamingtons in collaboration with South Australian native ingredient company Edible Reconciliation.
The two new flavours – Wattleseed with Chocolate and Lemon Myrtle with Coconut – reflect the quality of Kytons award winning lamingtons, including Kytons decadent chocolate dip, as well as flavours from native Australian ingredients in the soft fluffy sponge.
With striking new packaging, the new lamington flavours come in a new shape too – lamington fingers.
Kytons Bakery lamingtons are an iconic SA dessert and Edible Reconciliations co-owner Andrew Fielke has been a pioneer in evolving the modern native Australian cuisine over the last couple of decades. The collaboration is a wonderful opportunity to combine Australia’s signature cake, the lamington, with the flavours that have been used in this country for thousands of years to create something new and delicious just in time for National Lamington Day.
“Over the last few years Kytons has introduced several new flavours of lamingtons to the market and we’re really excited to add to our range and celebrate native ingredients this year,” says Kytons Bakery owner Sharon Sutton.
“It has been an interesting process to integrate the new flavours into the lamingtons – I encourage everyone to try something new this National Lamington Day.”
Edible Reconciliation is a proud partnership between Aboriginal man Dominic Smith and Andrew Fielke – two Australians “walking and working together” to help grow the native food industry.
Using their combined skillsets, Dominic, who is a leader in native plant horticulture and aquaponics, and Andrew, a renowned ‘Bush Tucker’ chef, each share a dream to make Native Australian foods an integral part of a modern diet for all Australians.
Kytons Bakery has been a part of the South Australian food industry since 1938 and their multi award winning lamingtons have been a part of South Australian’s lives for many decades, supporting locals through their community building fundraising lamington drives and stockists like Drakes, Foodland and selected gourmet fruit and vegetable stores who are all stocking the new range of lamingtons.
Why 21 July for National Lamington Day? No one really knows, but the date to celebrate Australia’s national cake is growing in popularity each year and we certainly aren’t complaining.
The delicious new lamington flavours will be available through Drakes, Foodland and selected gourmet fruit and vegetable stores.
