Take-Home Gourmet Treats
New on their menu of savoury treats this year is the Maple Wood Bacon-Wrapped Tom Turkey ($168 for 5kg). Wrapped with decadent strips of bacon and slow-roasted to perfection over Maple wood, the tender turkey meat is capped with the umami taste of bacon, a mix of salty and sweet, complemented with the smoked aroma of Maple wood. Each order is also served with sides including charcoal-baked potatoes, winter vegetables, mushroom stuffing and giblet gravy.
Returning on the takeaway menu this year is the Ash & Elm Platter ($38 for small / $68 for large), a combination of house-cured meats including Beef Pastrami, Cold Roast Beef, Pressé de Foie Gras with Smoked Duck, Air-Dried Pork Belly and Smoked Pork Loin, a perfect starter to kickstart any dinner celebration.
Satiate hearty appetites with exquisite meats such as the New England 70-Day Grain-Fed Beef Sirloin ($178 for 4kg), accompanied with roasted Yukon potatoes, winter sprouts, charred corn and a red wine shallot sauce, as well as the delicate Bultarra Australian Saltbush Lamb ($158 for 2-2.5kg) that bears robust flavours, fittingly paired with rosemary, potatoes, mint jelly, vine tomatoes and mushrooms.
A re-creation of ‘behind-the-scenes’ of a kitchen, Chef Ben Goh sheds light on what goes on when baking with Mini Kitchen ($68 for 1kg), a Sacher sponge layered with passionfruit and banana compote as well as crunchy royaltine, coated with a decadent 70% Guanaja cremeux. For a sugar-free option, Framboise of the Wild Forest ($68 for 1kg) offers a guilt-free choice which comprises a chocolate mousse, sugarfree chocolate ganache, centred with a raspberry confit atop a crunchy chocolate biscuit base
For an added taste of locality this Christmas, indulge in bite-sized morsels of colours with The Singapore Macarons ($15 for a box of 5). Fusing a mix of western tradition with local flavours, sandwiched between light, crisp macaron shells are creams that are infused with the essence of Pandan Kaya, Gula Melaka, Salted Egg Yolk Custard, Bubur ChaCha and Chilli Crab.
Give a gift of joy to friends and family this Christmas with two options of Christmas Hampers – Classic ($175) and Luxe ($380), a collection of the choicest handpicked treats that make for the perfect gift to show your appreciation.
