12 Indulgent Meats and Cakes for Christmas 2015

Goodwood Park Hotel Singapore - Christmas 2015

Christmas is just right around the corner, and what I love about the festive season is that it’s all about ‘diet-out-the-window’ decadence and ‘calories-who-cares’ indulgence.

This year, we source out the 12 best savouries and sweets to make perfect your 12-day boisterous celebration till 2016 come:


SAVOURIES

Goodwood Park Hotel Singapore - Christmas 2015 - Slow Roasted Iberico Pork Belly w Crackling, Pickled Cabbage, Apple Sauce & Pork Jus

Goodwood Park Hotel Singapore
Address: 22 Scotts Road, Singapore 228221
Order: Call +65 6730 1867/1868, visit the Deli at hotel lobby

There is something oh-so pleasurable about the divine crunch of crackling and Gordon Grill’s Executive Chef Gan Swee Lai serves up a masterful Iberico Pork Belly with just that. Under the crisp, golden-brown pork skin lies a thick layer of fatty pork belly made flavourful from being roasted with sherry vinegar, white wine and mirepoix of onions, carrots and celery.

Priced at $320, the Roast Pork comes with pickled cabbage, house-made Granny Smith apple sauce and pork jus infused with smoked bacon, and easily feeds up to eight people.
