Christmas is coming!
It’s the most festive time of the year, and chocolate’s the theme for this year’s party at Carlton Hotel. Carlton Hotel is rolling out their Christmas offerings on 1 December 2015, and they're chocolatey and full of delight. They’re only available till 25 Dec 2015 though, so you’ll have to be quick.
We were excited to sneak a few bites of their goodies to see what season's tidings they bring. Read on to find out what you can expect from Carlton Hotel this year!
Chocolate Stiletto and Assorted Pralines ($38 for 1 set)
We were surprised to find that this Cinderella-esque shoe with its 3-inch heel was made wholly of CHOCOLATE. The praline spheres are no slouch, either - they’re white chocolate ganache filled with cores of matcha, raspberry, citrus, chocolate and champagne - pick your favourite!
I dig matcha flavours and I’m always excited to see new matcha creations, so I snapped up the green balls in a flash. The matcha core was a melt-in-my-mouth experience.
Chocolate Kumquat Log Cake ($58 for 1 kg)
One reason I love about Christmas: tis’ the season to eat log cakes. The Chocolate Kumquat Log Cake is a special meeting of flavours - rich chocolate mousse intersects perfectly with the orange-y Cointreau brulee. Strawberry almond paste and red berries are also thrown into the mix to spice things up a little!
Better get someone with steady hands to cut the cake - it’d be a waste if you butcher it.
The strawberry almond and orange brulee filling packed every bite with flavour and zest. And make sure to invite the whole family when you order this - there's no way you'll finish this log cake by yourself.
Homemade Pandoro ($12 for a 400g cake)
A Pandoro is traditionally Italian sweet yeast bread. Carlton’s version is a little different - it’s sweet and lightly dusted with vanilla and icing sugar. Designed to resemble snow-capped mountains during Christmas, it’s buttery and airy, like a butter pound cake.
Honey Glazed Boneless Ham with Pineapple Sauce ($88 for 2-2.5kg)
Succulent, moist, and tender, this honey glazed ham is a sight to behold. It’ll be a talking point for the visitors and another reason for them to come over for your house party. You can also bring it over for a potluck - just make sure your friend’s house has a working oven!
Log Cakes, Roast Ham, and Much More
With such a decent range of cakes, pastries, and roasted specialties, Carlton Hotel’s Christmas menu will light up any Christmas party. They’ve got both the main course and the dessert covered, so make a stop at Carlton Hotel soon if you’re looking for some great food to add some flavour to your party.
All prices are subject to prevailing GST.
