Our country’s food culture is unlike anywhere else in the world – so embrace what makes us unique with this Kiwi Christmas menu.
With some great plan-ahead options to ease your holiday stress, these dishes are sure to become your new go-to favourites. Fresh, flavoursome seafood is always a hit at holiday parties, and our Summer Ceviche is both tasty and simple to prepare. The combination of fresh seafood and lime juice will instantly win you over.
Our Grilled Asparagus with Salsa Verde makes the most of in-season produce to create a stunning side dish or appetiser. The zesty salsa verde is also great with the ham!
And it certainly wouldn’t be a festive meal without a potato salad, and our Green Potato Salad with Celery and Crispy Bacon offers an exciting new twist on the tried-and-true favourite. You can also boil the potatoes ahead of time and cook the bacon, so all the hard work is done beforehand.
For Kiwi’s ham is often the most eagerly anticipated part of Christmas Day – and with its sweet and spicy flavours, our Pineapple & Star Anise Glazed Ham will have mouths watering as soon as it’s brought to the table. Save time and prepare the glaze beforehand. Making Christmas day even more fuss free.
For dessert, we have a Pavlova with Blueberries and Cheat’s Praline – a fabulous update on a true Kiwi classic. And of course there’s a deliciously rich and moist Easy Fruitcake with Brandy Icing, just like Nan used to make.
If you’re getting thirsty, you’ll love our Blueberry Mojito Mocktail – ultra refreshing, it’s great for warm summer days.
