Tis the season to be jolly.....! I found out last week that Delicious has a Christmas catalogue with all their goodies for the festive season. Laid out in a manner which looked suspiciously like my Donna Hay or Marie Claire cookbooks, there are recipes and pictures of items you can order to cater for your party - roast turkey with all the sides, cakes, cupcakes and etc.
I also found out they were serving their Christmas special - Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding. During my years in England, I developed a love for roast lunches. I used to look forward to Sunday lunches where it was traditional to have roast beef, lamb, pork or chicken. Served with lots of brown gravy, it was a perfect end to a week.
The one in Delicious took a while to arrive on the table - could be due to the time it needed in the oven to reheat. I asked for medium and the roast beef slices was good and tender. Instead of the brown sauce gravy they served a black pepper sauce on the side. Wasn't my favourite as I still prefer traditional brown sauce hence I dipped my beef sparingly. Although I liked my roast beef slices, I didn't quite like the sides. Yorkshire pudding was okay and a large portion. They served brussel sprouts and chesnuts topped with almonds, a favourite of mine. Unfortunately they had chucked it in the oven to reheat hence it was quite dry. I also had roast potato cubes on the side which was not bad but not crunchy enough. Priced at RM49.90, I thought it was a pretty good deal as the portion was huge. For the sides, I guess I have been spoiled by my friend Mau's excellent cooking as her brussel sprouts and chesnuts is still the best ever.
I thought I'll also share you pictures of this cute gingerbread house and Xmas tree I found at Bangsar Village. They must have had a kids decorating competition for Xmas as they had a few of houses and trees all nicely decorated on the first floor. I liked the design of the gingerbread house but the kid did forget one important detail as there were no doors to the house!
