Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? Come along, it’s time for feasting! A beautiful sight, all cheery and bright; we’re walking round the buffet, plate in hand.
We’re fast approaching Christmas, which means it’s time to ready our kitchens and tummies for non-stop Christmas parties! In this second instalment of our 2-part Christmas gift guide, we’re bringing you through all the foods of this Yuletide season so that you’ll never run out of (food) ideas for your long list of parties – potluck or not!
Log Cake Round-up
Top row, from left to right: Classic Logcake, $49, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (#02-03); Fete De Noel, $55, Rive Gauche Patisserie (#B2-K5); Rainbow Magic, $52.80, PrimaDeli (#B2-K1)
Bottom row, from left to right: Coconut Passion Yule Log, $57.94, Bakerzin (#01-207); Italian Meringue Log Cake, $32.90, VivoMart-Cold Storage (#01-23); Chocolate Orange Log Cake, $69.90, Marche Movenpick (#03-14)
While turkey is what comes to mind immediately when we think of foods for the festive season, we believe that a Christmas feast isn’t complete without the sweet and rich flavours of a Christmas log cake. Choose from traditional chocolate log cakes or opt for unique renditions such as coconut or orange for that something extra to round off your meal. Plus, they make really pretty (and tasty) gifts!
Hampers and Sweet Treats
From left to right: Ultimate Indulgence Hamper, $300, Marks & Spencer (#01-46); Rejoice Christmas Hamper $26, The Cocoa Trees (#01-K19); Vergani Dark Chocolates With Rum Flavored Cream, $7.50, Candylicious (#02-41)
Fancy showing up like Santa with a bag of gifts in tow? Christmas hampers make for practical and presentable gifts, especially when you’re attending a corporate Christmas affair. If lugging a hamper around isn’t quite your thing, pack a nice box of chocolates for a classy entrance to your next Christmas party.
Rockin’ around the buffet line
