If you’re keen on a sumptuous Italian feast, why not go for Da Paolo Gastronomia’s selection of festive favourites available for takeaway and delivery. The huge range of treats from ready to-eat items to curated bundles makes both hosting and gifting easy for time-strapped hosts.
A must-have is the Double-stuffed Deboned Roast Turkey featuring two different stuffings. On one side is a stuffing of Cotechino, an Italian spiced sausage traditionally served during Christmas time.

Don’t forget the quintessential Honey Baked Ham, studded with cloves, glazed with honey and accompanied by a browned butter apple sauce.
To complement the roasts, order sides such as brussel sprouts, turnips and cranberry salad, or couscous salad with raisins, rocket leaves, diced capsicum and sweet potatoes. And if that’s not enough, add on the Truffle Mac & Cheese made with Italian cheese and homemade béchamel, drizzled with Italian truffle oil.
