Looking to throw the mother of all Christmas feasts at home this year but don’t know where to start your shopping? Never fear, we’ve hunted down all the best stores that supply turkey and all the Christmas trimmings!
We’re big fans of Singapore’s indulgent Christmas brunches. But sometimes, it’s nice to entertain at home too since the kids never want to leave all their new Christmas toys behind to head out to a restaurant. And with the lead-up to the big day being a flurry of Christmas gift shopping and taking the little ones to see Santa, you might be in the mood for a relaxed home affair anyway. Cue: a nice big Christmas turkey dinner!
Whatever your reason for an at-home Christmas, the key to planning a stress-free turkey dinner (especially when there are little people involved) comes down to one word: planning. But before you get cracking on all the Christmas food shopping and storming the supermarkets, read on for where to buy your turkey and all its trimmings for a fab family Christmas in Singapore. And let’s not forget the beef, goose, duck and ham too!
