The countdown to the most magical time of the year is ticking. And with it comes Yuletide gatherings, and of course, festive treats. The best part? Celebrations this year can be as big — or as intimate — as you want them to be. 

As you catch up with friends, families, and loved ones, leave the cooking to the experts at Orange Clove. A gourmet caterer tantalising taste buds since 2008, it’s best known for uplifting corporate events with its gastronomic fare, particularly its signature international cuisine enriched with Asian flair. 

Created by Orange Clove’s Chef William Kong and team, the new Christmas menus will see your dinner table laid with gourmet platters, extravagant buffet spreads, and sweet treats that will ring in plenty of holiday cheer. 

As Delicious as They Look

For a centrepiece that looks just as good as it tastes, opt for Orange Clove’s gourmet platters. Each is indulgent in festive flavours and lavished with the best ingredients the season has to offer. Impress your guests with the 28-inch Christmas Wreath Splendor, a creation decked with cheddar, brie, gouda, and sheep cheese, paired with fresh fruits, gingerbread cookies, and sourdough slices. The edible work of art is then finished with rosettes of cold cuts: chicken salami, honey chicken ham, marbled beef pastrami. 

House-visiting? Consider the Epicurean Cheese and Charcuterie Platter with quality cheeses and cold cuts jazzed up with scallops and smoked salmon. For those seeking a heartier selection, the Gifts of the Sea menu brings the freshest catch to the plate: Crayfish, prawns, scallops, black mussels, and snapper ceviche are served alongside piquant Thai green chilli sauce and Thousand Island dressing. 

Sure to warm the bellies of all meat lovers is the Lush Grill Medley. This smoke-kissed ensemble features tender sausages (chipolata, black pepper, cheese, and more), slivers of roasted grain-fed beef tenderloin, a whole fillet of salmon dressed in honey and garlic, and sides of roasted vegetables. 

More the Merrier

For larger sized parties, Orange Clove also offers a wide range of scrumptious buffet spreads that can easily feed 30 guests and more. Each spread is thoughtfully curated to include both festive signatures and Asian-inspired dishes, so there is definitely something for every gourmand. 

To fully immerse in the season, you can choose to elevate the buffet line set-up with Orange Clove’s thematic decorations. They set a festive ambience for tucking into menus such as Merry Revelry (minimum 40 guests) — Greek feta salad, baked fish fillet, zucchini fried rice, snickerdoodle cake, and more — or Feast of Yule, a grand feast that may just leave you with delicious leftovers. Highlights include applewood-smoked duck, slow-roasted lamb leg, the unmissable turkey breast, chendol shooters, and peach muscat drink. 

Mix and Match

Not to worry if there are guests with differing taste preferences coming for your large-group gathering. Orange Clove has you covered too. Its Festive Indulgence option is customisable, allowing you to pick and choose from 17 dishes that are perfect for sharing. Delight guests with timeless rosemary rotisserie chicken and tomahawk steak with chimichurri, or appeal with novel options of chicken stroganoff shepherd’s pie, and creamy seafood boil, with crayfish, prawns, mussels, and clams all cooked in a luscious white sauce. 

Desserts aren’t overlooked, either. Those with a sweet tooth can choose to dig into the indulgent chocolate banana bread and butter pudding, and log cakes stuffed with passionfruit cream and pistachio crunch. 

Fuss-free, Easy Plating

For a more casual, fuss-free occasion, the Christmas Mini Buffet does away with the usual assembly. Instead, dishes are delivered in microwaveable containers and warmer bags — perfect for easy plating or clean-up. Noel’s Charm is a feast of portobello mushroom salad, crusted chicken, and garlic pesto penne; while the Glowing Mini Buffet is a customisable nine-course option that can come lavished with signature chicken curry, breaded dory, and almond pilaf rice. 

If like us you can’t wait to get the festive parties started, make your booking with Orange Clove early to avoid disappointment.
