Winter is here

Welcome to a new season at Greythorn. Winter has arrived but our businesses are starting to warm up again as restrictions begin to lift on many of our businesses who have had to remain closed. Looking forward to seeing all our loyal customers and your friends and family visiting our beauty salons reopening this week, restaurants and cafes being able to serve up those wonderful gourmet delights to patrons seated in house and all those delicious delights we’ve been missing for so long.

Here are some exciting things that have been happening in Greythorn and there’s going to be lots more with bigger, better and more exciting in store offerings available to our customers to give you every reason why you want to keep coming back to Greythorn to Discover the Difference.

Beanies raise funds for MNDBeanies raise funds for MND

Chef in a Box owner and gourmet chef extraordinaire Michael Costanza has not only been dishing up a feast to all his customers who have been dining at home during COVID-19, but he’s also been helping his friend Peter Ruddock’s fundraising efforts to fight Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Michael has been selling the Fight MND Beanies at Chef in a Box and encourages his customers and others to come and buy one to help find a cure for the disease.
Peter Ruddock has MND and has been fighting this beast for the past 27 years. He is known to be the longest surviving patient in Australia with MND.

Peter’s courage, enthusiasm and amazingly positive attitude are an inspiration to all.

Beanies are available at Chef in a Box 307 Doncaster Rd North Balwyn. Come in and get one before you miss out and support this great cause.

Busy bees in North BalwynBusy bees in North Balwyn

Chef in a Box now stocks North Balwyn-produced My Family’s Bees Honey in store.

The honey is made in Balwyn North from local gum tree blossoms and its sweet floral taste speaks for itself.

Raw honey has had a long history of providing a number of remedies and health benefits, including used as a medicine.

Nowadays it is still used in some hospitals as a treatment for wounds.

The health benefits are specific to raw, or unpasteurized, honey. Most of the honey you find in grocery stores is pasteurized.

The high heat treatment kills unwanted yeast and improves the colour and texture, removes crystallisation you often find in honey over time and extends the shelf life.

This process destroys many of the beneficial nutrients of the raw honey.

The benefits of raw honey are best derived when bought from a trusted local producer and that’s what My Family’s Bees offers and is available at Chef in a Box at 307 Doncaster Road, North Balwyn.

Here are some health benefits raw honey has to offer:

  • A good source of antioxidants
  • Antibacterial and antifungal properties
  • Heals wounds
  • Phytonutrient powerhouse
  • Helps digestive issues
  • Soothes a sore throat
