Dazzling Centerpiece Roasts
The port and prune infused Pretty Princess Turkey (S$108 for 3.5 to 4.4kg before roasting or S$138 for 5.5 to 6.3kg before roasting) in its gorgeous rich purple tone is brined with the woody and rich fruity notes of Taylor’s 10-year-old tawny port, fresh prunes, and prune juice for 3 days, then oven roasted at 150 degree Celsius for 1 hour 30mins till an alluring holiday scent wafts out of the oven.
A generous serving of the port and prune sauce accompanies this centerpiece together with stuffing of fresh prune, carrots, onions, celery and minced pork and beef.
The Nyonya-Thai inspired Bedazzling Bibik Turkey (S$89 for 3.5 to 4.4kg before roasting or S$108 for 5.5 to 6.3kg before roasting) is brined and marinated for 3 days with a pungent blend of fried spices – herbs, lemongrass, chilies, shallots, garlic, tamarind, blue ginger (galangal), and lime leaves before it is oven roasted at 150 degree Celsius for 1 hour 30mins.
This Asian centerpiece retains the juices of the herbs, spices and turkey, and the aromatics simply permeate through the glistening brown skin and meat when carved. To complete the experience is a savoury and heady sauce made from the same concoction.
