1) Turkey
A roasted turkey, the quintessential Christmas feast centrepiece, is probably the first item on our Christmas shopping list when it comes to preparing a festive meal at home. What's Christmas without turkey, amirite? Every year, hotels and restaurants come up with incredible renditions of the versatile meat. We've seen truffle turkey, ma la turkey, salted egg turkey, tea-roasted turkey, har cheong gai turkey etc and surprisingly, the best turkey I've tried this year is the Turkey Panggang($130) from Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre. The turkey was really tender and juicy, which aren't exactly common traits of turkeys, especially if they're bigger in size. Needless to say, I was wowed by the texture of the turkey. In addition, the turkey was very flavourful, and made even tastier by the accompanying peanut pineapple sauce which reminded me a little of satay sauce. So good! Order at

2) Ham
A well-loved Christmas staple with a twist, the Honey & Clove Glaze Ham with Cinnamon Pineapple Sauce (2-3kg/$168) from Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel is an absolute stunner. It's been a long while since I've had ham this good. Oh, and that pineapple sauce? Just amazing. It had just the right amount of sweetness and tanginess and complemented the ham perfectly. I had seconds, if you were wondering. I'm thinking of ordering this for my Christmas dinner, and I'm already planning on squirreling some away so that I can stack incredulous layers of ham in between 2 slices of brioche to make my very own ham sammie for breakfast the next day. I know it's gonna be awesome.

If you're thinking of having something other than turkey as an eye-catching centrepiece, or even just to complement your already enthralling selection, consider the Lobster Thermidor with Lobster Bisque Risotto (1kg/$180) from Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel. The succulent lobster was cooked to perfection, and the stellar risotto was packed with umami. I'm confident that your guests will give this a thumbs up.

7) Log CakeRegent_Singapore_Dolcetto_Festive_Yule_Logs  
Dolcetto at Regent Singapore rolled out 3 outstanding yule logs this year — Italian Chestnut and Whiskey Cheesecake with Caramelised Pear Compote, Imperial Earl Grey and Sea Salt Raspberry, and Sicilian Bronte Pistachio & Textures of Granny Smith Apples (Grande/$98), Medio/$50). I genuinely enjoyed all 3 creations, and was blown away by how refined and sophisticated they were. Every bite was a small taste of heaven, which I relished in silence, while nodding in approval. My favourite of the 3 was the impeccable Sicilian Bronte Pistachio & Textures of Granny Smith Apples which was smooth, rich, and just a dream come true.

8) Panettone
Raffles Hotel's Chocolate Panettone has got to be my favourite panettone to date! To be frank, I'm not a big fan of panettone because they're often loaded with raisins. So, I'm really happy to have discovered a completely chocolate version! The dreamy panettone was so fluffy and soft and just a total treat, especially for someone who adores chocolate (aka me). I loved how the rich chocolate coating melted instantly in my mouth, and made every mouthful even more indulgent. You can get this huge panettone from If you've always been a fan of their champagne truffle mooncakes, you definitely need to get their champagne truffles, which make great gifts as well. Don't forget to get some of their freshly baked Christmas cookies too!

9) Fruit Cake
InterContinental Singapore's PiƱata Fruit Cake($108), which is infused with rum and candied fruits just like the classic version, is dressed in unbeatable Christmas cheer. The adorable ornament ball, which can be playfully broken with a wooden mallet, holds goodies within. The little ones at home are definitely going to love this!

10) Cocktails & Mulled Wine
Consistently listed as one of the World's 50 Best Bars, Manhattan at Regent Hotel has crafted an impressive line-up of bottled Mulled Wine(350ml/$88) and festive bottled cocktails(350ml/$88) for the upcoming holiday season. The Yule is stronger, and has a spicy kick, while the Joyeux Noel, which is my favourite of the lot, is an exceptional ensemble that's particularly delicious, and exceedingly easy on the palate. I gulped down 2 glasses even before I finished my cakes! The mulled wine really warmed my heart and made me smile as it reminded me of my Christmas holiday in Vienna, where I was strolling through the iconic Christmas markets with a cup of warm mulled wine in hand. The cocktails are best paired with the pretty yule logs from Dolcetto and, trust me, you won't go wrong bringing this winning combination to your festive revelries.
