Slaving over a hot stove (probably a one-burner, two if you’re lucky), mini turkey rammed inside a toaster oven, sweating it out in a tiny, galley-style kitchen while all your friends and family enjoy giving thanks in raucous fashion together in the lounge. Why did you agree to host Thanksgiving, you ask yourself?
Or... you’re part of the action in the lounge armed with a playlist everyone will be following by the end of the eve, your best holiday-themed anecdotes to delight your guests, a beverage in hand and a smile on your face.
If the second scenario is in any way preferable, you might want to consider ordering in your Thanksgiving feast, and once we tell you what’s on the menu at Bread & Beast, we’re pretty sure this deal will be sealed.
Available until the end of November, their Thanksgiving catering menus (starting from $420/person; 10-person minimum; 4-day advance order) showcase inventive East-meets-West dishes. B&B have also got you covered if you’re headed out to eat, whether with a big group or a gathering so small it could be called a date. Their Thanksgiving dine-in menu ($788 for 2) is available from 15–24 November.
The menu includes roasted eggplant caprese with charred tomato, buffalo mozzarella, basil and mapo dressing, a special Caesar salad with sourdough croutons and salted fish Parmesan dressing and lap cheong mac ‘n’ cheese with shaved cured egg yolk. The main event is the 24-hour slow-cooked turkey with giblet Shaoxing dripping gravy, served with coriander and Chinese sausage stuffing. To completely send you off to a heavenly food coma, there’s mulled wine to sip alongside spiked bourbon pecan pie or apple pie.
With a mixture of meaty and vegetarian options, here are some of the gorgeous dishes you could be taking credit for should you choose to order in:
