It will take a village to finish this show-stopping Christmas bird. This year, Da Paolo Gastronomia brought it to the table with an impressive three-layer stuffed roast turkey ($358, approx 4kg). In the heart is the traditional Italian Cotechino sausage that has an earthy mix of leeks, chestnuts and mushrooms. Then a fragrantly spiced chorizo mince hugs the sausage before the bird is stitched back up to keep its shape. Conveniently deboned to allow for easy slicing, this photo-worthy epicurean highlight is an opulent treat for all ages. Can't finish it all? Save it for turkey sandwiches or top it onto salads in the next few days. Other perennial favourites include the braised beef roulade ($158, approx 1kg) and the honey-baked ham ($178, approx 2kg).
