Festivals somehow cannot escape the culinary excitement they generate, and in our wonderful multicultural and multicreeded land, the whole year seems to be one gastronomic treat after another. So when I was invited to try the Christmas spread at the beginning of November, I was mentally making a note to prepare for Yee Sang in December. The BIG Group has always innovated novel treats, and this year is no different.
Their lavish takeaway...YES, TAKEAWAY menu means for the culinarily challenged, you can now host a Christmas party as if you slaved over the kitchen since Gor Dong. (Winter solstice, 22nd December). Order in advance, select your date and pick up from Ben's Independent Grocers, Publika. And as the spread is Kosher, you can even use it for Hanukkah. (well, kosher in so far as it's pork free, not the other baffling combinations of no dairy and meat etc etc). Alright, let's not complicate matters, and just say it's PORK FREE. (I am not seeing myself doing cartwheels of delight at this information however, I have to admit). What? Noglazed ham?
We three meats of Orient are.....
Chef holds up the star of the night, traditional Roast Turkey and Stuffing...so if you've heard rumours that the import of turkeys has been curbed this year, it's somewhat true, I hear and they're not readily availaible, (raw or otherwise), but evidently, B.I.G. has their ways and means of flying in the bird.
And the pieces de resistant... DESSERTS...
Children's choir ...
It's December.... Peace on Earth Goodwill twards man.
