Sampling The Westin Singapore's Christmas Specials

Hohoho! Time for moore festive grazing. Moohehe.

This time, I sampled some of The Westin Singapore's Christmas Specials.

Their traditional roasts available for takeaway from 1 to 25 December include this hot chick- Honey Apple Glazed Turkey & Chestnut Stuffing ($135 for about 6-7kg), a welcome at any diner party with its well-roasted skin, subtle smokiness and fine, meaty texture.

Spiked with cloves, the Pineapple Glazed Gammon Ham with Brussel Sprouts, Asparagus & Carrots, Roast Pumpkin, Mash Potato & Baby Roast Potatoes ($120 for 2 kg) was gently accented with the spice (rather Christmas-sy!). Its moist, juicy bite was accompanied with a freakinnnnng amazing mashed potato which the chef served up!  

Ok, actually I jumped the gun cos the dinner tasting started with this Christmas Walnut Frittata, Poached Egg with Cream Cheese Topping and Ranch Dressing, Salmon Caviar; and Smoked Duck Rillettes, Crispy Garlic and Herb Baguette prepared by the Seasonal Beats kitchen. Got too excited by the turkey and ham lah, Moohehe.

Ended the meal on a sweet note with the Snowy White Forest Chocolate Yule Log with Brandied Cherries, Yogurt Sorbet ($60 for 1 kg). Love the balance of this log cake. Certainly not overly sweet nor rich and would make a nice finale to a heavy festive dinner. By the way, look carefully and you might see my name on the plate!

Check out their full range of festive specials here.

Thanks to Trisha and Huishan of Mercury PR and The Westin Singapore for hosting me.
