FairPrice for Christmas roasts and more
Every Christmas is the time when we feast on the full festive works: hearty roasts, savoury cold cuts, fancy log cakes and more. This year, FairPrice has pulled out all the stops to offer everything you’ll need for your end-of-year feast. From free-range deli and plant-based bakes, to halal-friendly sets, all at affordable prices, the one-stop supermarket has it all.
If you’re familiar with FairPrice’s festive offerings, you’ll know that they have really gone all out this year in terms of variety and quality. You’ll find your usual Christmas combos, such as the Classic Combo ($82, serves 12 to 15), comprising a traditional roast turkey with chestnut stuffing, cranberry sauce, and another pack of gourmet sauce, honey baked ham (1kg), and German pork knuckle (1.3kg before roasting), alongside smaller sets that feed an intimate party of three to four.
Christmas is incomplete without ham. Going beyond the usual holiday must-haves, the Tuscany Truffle Ham ($38) features a fragrant truffle-spiked chunk of pork ham. It weighs in at a whopping 1.5kg, making it perfect for sharing among six to eight people. This year’s theme is ‘A Precious Christmas to Share’—especially fitting since we haven’t been able to gather much in the past year.
Another festive highlight to add to your cart is the Supreme Delight ($38), an all-new platter consisting of Truffle Pork Ribs (1.2kg before roasting) and a Helix Pork Sausage (around 450g).
The truffle pork ribs boast a strong truffle fragrance upon roasting, while the giant sausage has a good snap when you sink your teeth into it.
Adding on to the meaty list is the Free Range Sausage Platter ($33.90), which includes four of each flavour: German Pork Sausage, Pork Cheesy Sausage, and Italian Pork Sausage. The meat comes from free-roaming Australian pigs that are raised with ethical farming processes, including having free access to outdoor spaces.
Suitable for a party of six to eight, the sausage assortment is best served warm, after briefly grilling or pan-frying. Our favourite out of the lot is the cheesy variant, as the creamy cheese complements the juicy and flavourful pork.
FairPrice houses a wide selection of halal deli, too. There’s the Delectable Roast Turkey ($56.90, 4.5-5.5kg) for six to eight people, and the Roasted Black Pepper Rib-Eye Beef ($42.80, 1.2kg before roasting), which serves two to three.
If you’re looking for a meat-free alternative for your vegetarian friend, check out the plant-based selection. We highly recommend the Impossible Plant-Based Beef Quiche ($39.90) for a group of four to six.
Make sure to heat it up in the oven at 140°C for 15 to 20 minutes before serving, so the pastry turns a beautiful golden brown.
We were pleasantly surprised by how hearty and satisfying the filling was. It could almost pass off as beef, sans any gaminess commonly associated with red meat. This would make the perfect Christmas pie for meat lovers and vegetarians alike, and the best thing is: you’ll only need to pop it in the oven to reheat!
The dessert lineup is an equally impressive affair, with halal-friendly cakes taking centre stage this year. Smaller groups can enjoy the Happy Christmas Tree Cakes ($29.90) and Christmas Cream Puffs ($29.90), but if you have the stomach space, definitely go for the vegan Jolly Truffle Chocolate Cake ($39.90). The latter is rich and indulgent, with a fudgy, almost brownie-like crumb.
