Not everyone might be a fan of turkeys, but the double-stuffed bird from Da Paolo Gastronomia will change your mind. The 3.5kg feast ($298) is conveniently de-boned, then stuffed with gourmet ingredients: Cotechino, a spiced Italian sausage of one side; and minced Cumberland pork sausage studded with chestnuts and fresh mushrooms on the other. The statement piece comes served with roasted potatoes, carrots, and apple gravy, best accompanied with sides of couscous salad ($39) and sliced Brussel sprouts ($55).

What’s a festive meal without turkey? An Asian-influenced spread that is equally as enjoyable! Digital restaurant Island Kitchen Collective has put together a multi-cuisine spread that will take you on a gastronomic adventure. Must-gets include the visually stunning nori temaki ($80 for five) where flavoured rice comes topped with fresh ingredients: avocado unagi (creamy and meaty), Hokkaido surf clam, garlic butter prawn, spicy crab meat, and mentaiko salmon. Or snack on gobi Manchurian ($9) for a spice-forward side dish. 

Of course, traditional roasts are also available. And the meat platter ($118) is a reliable pairing of pork belly, marinated in rosemary and thyme for 24 hours, before going into the oven to develop a crispy top; alongside Iberico pork slow-baked for three hours till smoky and tender.

From the ovens of Halal-certified bakery Swissbake comes a smoke-kissed selection of Christmas roast platters. For intimate get-togethers, consider The Modernist ($218) that feeds up to five hungry mouths.

Round off the meal with sweet treats of hazelnut caramel log cake, and slices of stollen (also great for breakfast the next day). More hearty bundles, filled with turkey, lamb rack, and other baked goods, are also available.
