I Propose A Roast - Part 1

Nothing quite completes a Christmas dinner like a plump turkey or gorgeously glazed ham. Check out an array of magnificent roasts from Singapore’s best hotels and restaurants.

The signature Cajun Turkey ($138) from Carlton City Hotel Singapore makes its return this year. Along with the usual accompaniments of roasted potatoes, vegetables and chestnut-chicken mousseline stuffing, each order of the Cajun Turkey comes with a selection of four marmalades and four sauces. The classics like cranberry marmalade, giblet gravy and bread sauce are available, but those who prefer a more exciting flavour profile will love the spicy ‘mala’ chicken sauce, pineapple-wasabi marmalade and honey green mango marmalade.
