Get Festive.. Get Feasty!


Food, as we know is an integral aspect of any festival.So with the festive days of Christmas and New Year upon us, whipping up a smashing feast for family and guests might be a mandatory ritual.  The festive fervour definitely needs to be celebrated with a dash of grandeur and sprinkle of glamour on your palate!

One of the key questions which often comes to our mind when planning a Christmas or New Year menu is whether or not to stick to a traditional offering. While there is no harm in going traditional, you can also combine tradition and innovation to perk things up!

Zero on superlative celebratory dishes and plan a quality, concise menu which includes a few speciality items too. Also, you can do with some amount of experimentation which will make the palate both appetizing and appealing.

One option could be an intriguing Christmas Pudding with nutmeg custard. You also need to ponder over enough scrumptious options for the vegetarians too. You could prepare a Green Pesto Roulade with slow roasted tomato sauce or a Smoked Applewood Cheddar &Red Onion Soufflé in a filo pastry shell.

Don’t forget to add enthralling desserts and cheese to complete the celebration. You can do an extensive Cheesemonger selection or a Cheese Fondue.Present an Instagram-worthy Cheeseboard Bite Christmas Tree, a Shimmering Gold Melt in the Middle Pudding or a lovely Hand-decorated White Forest Cheesecake to display the jolly feels in your food!

Make the kids squeal with delight as you present a Panda Party Cake and leave your guests with a home-prepared Luxury Lustred Macaroon box. There are cooking schools in Dubai that you can enrol with and learn to pep up your preparations with different ideas and techniques.

Innovate, go an extra mile and ring in the Christmas and New Year with feast full of indulgent treats and a Michelin magic to your food that can win over even the most disgruntled taste-buds!
