Make December the best time of year, not the most stressed time of year thanks to Christmas catering by a few James St favourites.
If Greek treats are more your style say no more, Cantinho has you covered. With offerings of traditional seafood paella, slow roasted Greek lamb shoulder with lemon potatoes, pastitsio, spanakopita and fresh seafood (bugs, oysters, lobsters, and prawns) you’ll be sure to need a post-Christmas lunch nap.
Did someone say seafood buffet with fresh prawns and oysters? FreshFishCo sure did. Christmas without crustaceans is a crime. Pre-order ASAP.
OK, this gourmet bakery is a one-stop-shop. If you’re a lover of Christmas classics (who isn’t) they have THE best glazed leg ham, fruit mince pies and mango trifle. If you’re wanting to put a delicious twist (literally) on your feast, opt for a bread wreath. Or, if stocking fillers are on the mind, ginger stars should be too.
Now that you’ve got the food sorted. What’s missing? Cocktails of course! sAme sAme has you covered with their pre-made cocktail boxes filled with an assortment of Tommy’s Margaritas, Negronis (yes we just played the TikTok in our head too) and Espresso Martinis.
If you’re shopping at The Standard Market Company Meats you know you’re getting top notch quality – ’tis ALWAYS the season for premium meats. Have the boujiest BBQ and impress the ‘rents’ with a Bangalow pork loin roast, or let Sam Kekovich inspire you (the guy from the meat commercials) and cook-up some cutlets. BBQ is The Standard Market Company Meat’s middle name, so visit the team for the hot BBQ-ing tips.
This year, The Green (pictured below) is bringing you the complete Christmas feast. All the chopping, peeling, roasting, baking and seasoning done to perfection that is. Win the day with the following options: Moreton Bay bugs, shawarma lamb shoulder, dips, mezze, salads, baklava fingers and so much more. Or if choosing is creating friction in the family, order the ‘Feast Menu’ for the perfectly curated Lebanese lunch.
For all things sugar, spice and everything nice, look no further than The Nut Market. This year, they have made festive catering both nostalgic and simple with an assortment of Christmas packs available such as the Australian Dried Fruit and Nut Mix, the Lolly Mix and the classic Christmas Mix that includes all their best sellers. Don’t stop your Christmas planning there, they also have a range of spreads and spices for all of your home cooking needs.
