The festive season has crept up on us once again!
Are you ready? Have you planned and planned for months? Have you got everything you need?
Don’t stress if you haven’t gone into major planning mode for Christmas, because Woolies has your back!
Back in August, I attended their Christmas media day, and let me just tell you, that besides the fab gifting options, the food is out of this world!!!
Serve it up in your most stylish dinnerware, and your guests will think you’re a rock star, gourmet cook!
We were treated to a delightful menu of fabulous food cooked up, prepared and presented by the talented Woolies food team…
For starters, I had the Norwegian Salmon, cured and marinated in lemon and pink peppercorn. Salmon and Trout canape with gold spray and salmon and prawn terrine with salmon row.
Is your tummy rumbling yet?
Mine sure is!
For mains I had the free range leg of lamb with cranberry sauce, served with ready to eat de-boned gammon, (smoked in beach wood) and served with toppings of crispy bacon, finished with delicious veggies and potatoes.
And for dessert, which is always my favourite part of the meal, we were treated, and I mean really treated!
I honesty thought it would be impossible to beat the delicious starter and main meal that we enjoyed, but you know Woolies, always making it better and better!
So instead of one “main” desert we were treated to an exquisite dessert buffet, loaded with cheeses galore and so many delicious treats, I could barely keep up with all the names.
I’m sorry I don’t have all the names of all the treats (I got way sidetracked), but I would definitely add the Black Forest Fruit Pudding (above) and the Belgian Triple Chocolate Layered Desert (below) to my cart!
The desserts were made and presented by the same passionate people who make the ready-made desserts you can buy from Woolies, and let me tell you, the pride of these people is not only seen in their work, but their incredible passion in how they paired the deserts and styled them in just the right place.
For the festive season, Woolies is launching 9 specialty cheeses, that will add to their over seventy selection of cheeses, which are predominantly South African.
