Christmas is just around the corner! The holiday season is one of our favourite times of the year due to the many traditions, festive feasting, and gift-giving, as well as the gathering of family and friends. Here’s our 2022 Christmas Guide featuring the best gifts to give and takeaway feasts to indulge in.
Home for Christmas? These takeaway menus will certainly make your celebrations all the more special, whether you’re having a meal with your significant other or hosting a party for your loved ones.
Thinking of indulging in Christmas goodies but don’t want to feel guilty?
Cedele celebrates the true spirit of sharing and indulgence with exquisite selections of baked goods and dining options. With their ethos of ‘Eat Well, Be Well’, Cedele’s carefully curated selection of Christmas cookies, cakes, roasts, sharing platters and sides are made from responsibly sourced ingredients to help make your celebrations mouth-watering and hassle-free. I always enjoy their handcrafted baked goods, which are made with organic, unrefined sugar without trans-fats or artificial ingredients.
A few of our favourites from their wide range of products include their Christmas Tree Brioche ($36), Pistachio Earl Grey Nutella Log Cake ($76) and Very Berry Vanilla Bean Tart ($72).
The Pistachio Earl Grey Nutella Log Cake ($76) is a new creation by Cedele this year. Infused with light Earl Grey French Buttercream and a Nutella log rolled within, the cake exhibits a delicate tea fragrance that compliments the layers of soft and fluffy chiffon.
Cedele has also introduced the Very Berry Vanilla Bean Tart ($72) – a beautiful dessert featuring fresh seasonal fruits such as blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and red currants layered over a light vanilla bean pastry cream with a dark chocolate cookie crust.
The centrepiece of our Christmas table is their popular Christmas Tree Brioche ($36), featuring buttery brioche rolls decorated in a festive tree shape, served with roasted red pepper harissa hummus and umami spinach & onion cream cheese spread. I love how eye-catching this centerpiece is for our Christmas table!
