Best Christmas Festive Feasting 2017 Guide

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! As parents running hectic schedules, it is hard to take precious time off for quality family time. Yet, festive seasons like Christmas is always a perfect opportunity to take your family out for a delightful, well-deserved festive treat. Sharing with you our personal recommendations and introducing a list of notable, decadent hotels and restaurants that will promise you a memorable night with a belly full of a festive treat!

One Farrer Hotel & Spa
If you are considering to prepare a hearty festive treat in an intimate, closed gathering style with your family and friends, look no further. One Farrer Hotel & Spa upholds a ‘Farm to Table’ philosophy, and their dedication this coming Christmas is to bring a wholesome festive delight right to your household.

One Farrer Hotel & Spa’s Christmas meats are marinated with freshly harvested herbs like Thyme and Oregano from their on-site urban farm.

A must-try is none other than the Salt Encrusted Turkey. The preparation of the Salt Encrusted Turkey marinated with herbs is mastered to excellence without losing the original flavour or the moisture. Behold the sight of unpacking the turkey from its crust – this crowd’s favourite will definitely steal the show at the dining table.

Besides the main festive meats, expect festive desserts prepared by One Farrer Confectionery. The desserts include Jivara Chocolate Hazelnut Buche, Mango Bavarois Buche, Whisky Pear Almond Tarte and many more. We exceptionally adore the Jivara Chocolate Hazelnut Buche – a traditional style log cake which is so rich in flavour with the perfect balance of sweetness.
