Eat Drink and Be Merry

How about a Five Star Christmas dinner delivered in a box…

The holiday are some of the most joyous but stressful times of the year. Not only is it a gathering of family from far and near with the inevitable personality clashes and idiosyncrasies, it’s the strains of putting together the Norman Rockwell-perfect dinner. To that end, it’s either an exhausting day spent in the kitchen or the potluck surprise route with its accompanying “Battle of the Stuffings” from competing aunts or the forgetful uncle who can never seem to remember to bring the only thing he’s entrusted with, a simple can of cranberry sauce.

This holiday season why not give the gift of time and family harmony with a complete turkey dinner with all the trimmings? Let the Riverside Cafe at the Renaissance Riverside Saigon Hotel take all the work out of the holidays with a 6-7 kg turkey (or honey-glazed ham) that serves 10-12.

Notoriously a difficult meat to keep moist due to its low fat content, Renaissance Riverside Saigon Hotel roasts its turkeys to perfection, a delicate balance of temperature, time and basting, carefully packaged to ensure it reaches your dinner table in all its right-out-of-the-oven glory.

The honey-glazed ham receives its festive flavor from pineapple puree, honey and cloves and spends three hours in the oven, bathed in a vegetable stock with cubes of carrots, celery and onions.

In addition to a bottle of wine and any two sauces (cranberry, ginger cranberry, mustard or red wine), holiday diners can choose three sides: roasted potato, braised red cabbage, honey glazed carrots, roasted pumpkin, green beans, broccoli and a quartet of stuffings (traditional, smoked sausage, nut bread and oyster bread), ensuring that even the pickiest eaters will be rendered immobile in that blissful tryptophan- induced state of lethargy that comes only after a festive holiday meal.

Available from November 27 to December 31, the turkey/honey ham set is priced at VND 2,250,000 net. Order 24 hours in advance by phoning 3822 0033, ext 2309.
