Stefano Canturi Ham Bags
Each year, Victor Churchill collaborates with a renowned Australian designer to create an exclusive piece for customers while supporting an important local charity. This year’s ham bag is designed by internationally recognised jewellery designer Stefano Canturi
For 27 years, Stefano Canturi has been designing beautiful and artistic fine jewels for his clients in Australia, New York and around the world, some of which includes famed pieces for Academy Award winning films and many of the world’s most influential women.
His Limited Edition Victor Churchill Ham Bag design reflects his signature style. Stefano explains, “I have expressed Christmas through my eyes. I experience Christmas as a precious and splendorous time. I’ve taken the familiar delicate, beautiful concept of a snowflake and interpreted it in my Cubism style using the glamorous concept of ruby red jewels.”
The limited edition ham bag is a complimentary gift with every ham purchased from Victor Churchill. They will also be available for individual sale at $16.95 each.
Victor Churchill will donate $10 from the sale of every whole ham and $5 from every half ham purchased to the Sydney Children’s Hospital. In addition, $10 from the sale of each ham bag will go to the Sydney Children’s Hospital.

Nothing spells Christmas more than a succulent, glazed ham. The first step to having the best possible feast this Christmas is to select quality produce and at Victor Churchill we are all about our award-winning Kurobuta Christmas hams. These rare-breed Kurobuta pigs are a descendant of the Berkshire pig. A gift to the Japanese royal family, this strain of the black pig is renowned for its amazing flavour and fat content. In a similar vein to heirloom fruit and vegetables, the flavour of rare breed pigs differs dramatically from their commercial cousins.
“Lovely smell. Like the ham I remember from my childhood. A beautifully prepared ham with a perfect balance of meat and fat from Kurobuta Berkshire pigs, a heritage English breed developed in Japan” Good Foods 2012 Ham of the Year.
If a glazed ham is not on your Christmas menu then you can also order an organic turkey, a turduken, something from the butcherís cabinet or a classic dessert. Pick up an order form in store or on the website from 4th of November.
