Enjoy a Two-MICHELIN-Starred Holiday Meal at Home with Saint Pierre's Festive Takeaway Menus
Planning a lavish celebration indoors this holiday season? Spoil your family and friends with two-MICHELIN-Starred Saint Pierre's festive takeaway selection.
“With the close of a hectic year, it’s time to take a well-deserved break to celebrate with friends and family. We’d love for our guests to relish moments of bonding over an unforgettable feast — whether they do so at Saint Pierre or in the comfort of their own homes,” says chef-owner Emmanuel Stroobant.
There's no holding back as the French fine dining destination has prepared dishes that include: Roasted Whole Capon, with Chestnut, Mushroom and Foie Gras Stuffing, and Herbed Truffle Jus; Guinea Fowl prepared “Coq Au Vin” Style; Maple-Bourbon Glazed Ham; 7-Hour Braised Lamb Shoulder with Lemon Confit, Coriander, and Cumin; 200-Day-Aged Angus Beef Rib Eye “En Croûte”, with Black Pepper-Thyme Sauce; Whole “Côte de Boeuf” 7 Ribs, Salt Crusted, Dry Aged; and Green Tea-Smoked Wild Salmon, among others.
The Saint Pierre holiday signature of Black Truffle Marbled Foie Gras Terrine is also available, along with the Christmas Pavlova Wreath (S$120) for dessert, which comes adorned with seasonal fresh fruits.
Customers can place their orders by calling +65 6438 0887 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org at least three working days prior to the collection date. Pre-orders start from 1 December 2022, Thursday. The last order for Christmas Eve is 16 December 2022, Friday 6pm, while the last order for New Year’s Eve is 23 December 2022, Friday 6pm.

For Christmas Eve (24 December 2022), the two-MICHELIN-Starred restaurant will be serving Minquiers Island Blue Lobster, where the Minquiers Island blue lobster is first confited and then blanketed with alternating circles of Périgord black winter truffle shavings and coconut. Other highlights are Hawke’s Bay Venison — with layers of kabocha tartare and venison mousse in a gingerbread crust, and Pyrenees Lamb Saddle, which comprises roasted Pyrenees milk-fed lamb saddle, alongside parsnip-miso cream, and monkey head mushroom. The dessert features Korean Chestnut, where Korean chestnut purée encases Vanuatu vanilla perfumed-cream sitting in a Lifou multifleur honey tartlet.
And to cap off 2022 on New Year's Eve (31 December 2022), Saint Pierre bids adieu to the year that was with one of Stroobant's signatures — the Manjimup Marron. The confit Manjimup marron is showcased atop oba leaf jelly, accompanied by Jerusalem artichoke cream, and wasabi-infused buttermilk sauce. The menu also features Anjou Pigeon — roasted Anjou pigeon breast glazed with togarashi and Anjou pigeon leg shepherd’s pie. A butter-poached Nagasaki Flounder will also be available; and for dessert, a Mediterranean Willowleaf Mandarin served as a mini St. Honoré with hōjicha cream, single estate chocolate ganache, and Willowleaf mandarin compote in a choux puff.

Esora Explores Winter Japanese Fare in Its New Seasonal Menu
With everyone flocking to Japan this holiday season, one-MICHELIN-Starred Esora keeps company those who are staying put in Singapore for the holidays with its seasonal menu that reflects Japan's winter produce.
The cold winter brings seafood of higher fat content, making buri, fugu (puffer fish), ankimo (monkfish liver), Matsuba-gani (snow crabs), and uni (sea urchins) the menu's highlights. Root vegetables such as gobo (burdock), daikon (radish), and potatoes help keep the body warm in the cold, and leafy vegetables — winter chijimi horenso (snow spinach) and Shimonita negi (bunching onions) — are especially sweet when grown in the harsh temperatures; while seasonal fruits of ringo (apple) and mikan (mandarins) are ripe for the picking this time of year.
Winter cooking styles are also presented in Esora's latest menu such as nabe (hotpot), stews, oden, sukiyaki, and shabu-shabu.
Esora's 10-course winter menu sheds the spotlight on items such as a Cold Dish that features Botan ebi, seasonal hokkigai (surf clams) and chijimi horenso, a Japanese snow spinach from Gunma prefecture grown in highly specific conditions allowed by the winter weather. The Esora signature of Chicken Wings is given a season-specific interpretation, incorporating Hokkaido potatoes that have been stored at low temperatures, consequently accumulating more sugars and with a stronger profile than new potatoes harvested in autumn. For the Donabe course, Matsuba-gani (snow crabs) from the Tottori prefecture are used, straight from the cold Sea of Japan.
Esora is located at 15 Mohamed Sultan Road, 238964, Singapore. Make a booking here.

Labyrinth Launches its Latest Iteration of "New Singaporean" Cuisine

The result is an exciting, original and unforgettable set menu that surprises, amuses, and satisfies. The restaurant’s black canvas is punctured by razor sharp lighting, while the service team are clued up and very well-organised.
"New Singaporean cuisine showcases unique flavour combinations whilst staying true to the heritage of not just quintessential Singaporean dishes, but also unique traditions and culture of Singapore," says Han. "My cooking draws inspiration from my childhood memories and personal anecdotes growing up in Singapore, the bountiful local produce that this tiny island has to offer, as well as my roots as a Hainanese growing up as a kid in my grandfather’s restaurant."
The refreshed menu at Labyrinth boasts an array of small bites that exude Singaporean heritage and cultural cuisine with highlights such as Yusheng, the traditional Chinese New Year centrepiece, made with otoro, pickled beetroot and daikon, kaffir lime oil, and local honey; an assortment of "Mamak" food that pays tribute to the bounty of local food stalls in Singapore; and the restaurant's mainstay of “Hainan Kopi Tales”, which draws its inspiration from one of Singapore's kopi institutions.
