What is Christmas without the traditional turkey? Marinated for 24 hours with 7 aromatic nonya spices. Perfectly roasted and still maintaining the moisture within. Garnished with sweet juicy cherry tomatotes, brussel sprouts, onions and baby carrots.

Honey baked ham and crackling pork trotters. Pork trotters simply fatty and juicy, not forgetting most importantly, skin that truly crackled. Between the two, I preferred the pork trotters as the ham was seasoned with cinnamon.

Grilled lamb and beef. I am not able to comment on the lamb as I do not eat lamb. Beef was marinated beautifully and tender but not to the point of being melty.

The dessert table was and always will be the sweetest ending to any buffet.

Star of the night…. Cheese truffle fondue

Instead of the usual chocolate fondue, this was thinking out of the fondue fountain. Cheddar cheese was used and truffle oil added. Bread sticks provided by the side for slathering in the fondue. Actually the smell of truffle was the first thing that hit me upon entering the room. Exceptionally creamy with a strong hint of truffle. This was a hit with many of the foodies who were present at the media preview.
