Unwraps Holiday

Luxury food retailer GREAT Food Hall has searched far and wide to bring together an unrivalled holiday selection that encompasses all the cherished culinary traditions of Christmas. Everything possible to make the holidays memorable has been thought of: full festive feasts, seasonal specialties, mis-en-place ingredients, all sorts of Christmas cakes and in-house baked holiday goodies.

Fully Cooked Selections

GREAT offers a choice of ready-made menus centered around holiday roasts with classic sides, sauces and desserts. The Signature Whole Turkey Set and Festive Glazed Gammon Set are ideal for large gatherings of eight to ten people, while the Holiday Ham & Turkey Set is intended for a smaller party of six to eight. From beginning to end, this Christmas feast will be one for the memory book.

Alternatively, shoppers have the option to create their own ideal holiday meals by choosing from a variety of fully cooked rotisserie meats: Server’s Choice Tomahawk bone-in beef rib roast, spit-roasted bone-in lamb shoulder, a whole roasted Welsh lamb weighing 17Kg, Rose bone-in gammon ham, and Maple Leaf Farms’ whole U.S. duck. To accompany these entrées are some favourite fixings, such as baked sage and onion stuffing, roasted pumpkin with parsnip and onions, double-baked sweet potatoes, baked apples with dates and brandy butter, and Brussels sprouts with pancetta and chestnuts

Fromage



Among the most sought-after seasonal cheeses, Vacherin Mont d’Or, named after the ‘Golden Mountain’ on the Swiss-French border, is traditionally produced using gently pasteurised cow’s milk from herds that strictly eat straw and fodder at a minimum altitude of 2,297 feet. This rich and creamy textured, washed-rind cheese is enveloped in spruce bark during the aging process, which gives it a woodsy aroma and flavour.

The GREAT Deli is now stocked with deliciously filling fondue, tartiflette and raclette sets, perfect for those intimate wintry gatherings. The Jura Valley Fondue Set features a trio of Switzerland’s most savoured mountain cheeses, specifically cave-aged Gruyère, Emmental AOC, and Vacherin Fribourgeois AOC. In the Tartiflette, richly flavoured Reblochon, a French Alpine cheese hailing from the Haute-Savoie region, is the highlight and accompanied by potatoes, crème fraîche, onions, and diced pancetta. Raclette, both a cheese and a centuries-old Swiss dish, involves melted cheese served with potatoes, sliced cured meats, and gherkins.

Baked Goodies



GREAT’s decked out pastry cases will no doubt entice repeat visits in order to sample the full spectrum of holiday delights conjured up by the pastry team. Different flavoured Yule log cakes, completely edible gingerbread houses, bigger-than-average gingerbread men, festive cake pops and cookies are amid the assortment guaranteed to inspire Christmas cheer.
