[Alexandra] Black Forest Christmas Feast at The Carvery

Can’t believe it’s already November and Christmas is around the corner! For the month of December, Executive Chef Robert Chan and his team will be presenting his culinary creations inspired by the Black Forest in Germany. Meanwhile, you can also enjoy Christmas carollers performance during the yuletide season.

This Christmas, The Carvery includes highlights such as: US Black Angus Beef Prime Rib (weekends only), Crown Roast of Pork, Spit-roasted Chicken with Tarragon, Roast Turkey, Buttered Brussel Sprouts and Carrots, range of Gourmet Sausages, Forest Mushroom Flatbread, German Potato Pancakes (Kartoffelpuffer), Baked Apples with Walnut Stuffing, and Black Forest Trifle. The Black Forest Christmas Feast is available from 12 Dec 2016-1 Jan 2017. For full details scroll to the bottom of this page.

I think by now, you already know that The Carvery is famous for its carving stations (thus the name). My favorite is their beef and this time we got a chance to try their US Black Angus Beef Prime Rib. You can taste the subtle smokiness of the beef because it’s finished off in a wood-fire oven. You can pair this with Yorkshire Pudding which is crispy and fluffy. Pour a lot of sauce (ranging from veal jus to red wine) or smear some truffle butter on it. It’s so good.

The Crown Roast of Pork is tender and moist. The rib portions of the loins are wrapped together to form a circle, replicating a “crown”. Various herbs such as savory, marjoram, rosemary, thyme, oregano makes the pork fragrant.

If you prefer a healthier choice, go for their Spit-roasted Chicken with Tarragon. I always hate chicken if it’s overcooked. However, this is a different case. The flesh is still tender and moist because tarragon is stuffed within the cavity and beneath the skin. Continuous basting while cooking makes the meat juicy as well.

Besides the roasts at the carving station, you can also try some of the following dishes. I recommend their German Potato Pancakes (Kartoffelpuffer) that tastes like a more densed version of a Swiss rosti.

When it comes to dessert, you really really have to try the Black Forest Trifle. It’s the Carvery’s signature trifle. Similar to the Black Forest, you can expect layers of chocolate sponge cake, dark chocolate mousse, brandy soaked cherries, whipped cream and custard. And then, wait there’s more….. topped with cherries, whipped cream and crispy dark Valrhona chocolate. It’s so awesome.

Another fruit commonly found in the Black Forest is apples. And this time you can try Chef Robert’s creation: Baked Apples with Walnut Stuffing. They’re made from both Granny Smith and Red Gala apples, stuffed with walnuts and almond paste. Pair this with your coffee or tea as it’s on the sweeter side.
