Celebrate the festive season with MCG Events
To celebrate the Holiday Season this year, MCG Events are delivering a traditional ‘Festive Feast’ available throughout November and December. Available for groups 50 people and over, the menu offering promises to deliver in abundance – with a focus on creating a modern twist on a traditional offering.
Executive Chef, Dylan Sanding;
“As a kid for me Christmas was all about family and an abundance of food. Whole roast pigs, glazed hams, all the sides, and all the trimmings, so I wanted to deliver a feast for all the senses.
Some of the highlights guests can expect to see include masses of seafood including fresh prawns and oysters, lobster rolls; followed by the whiskey glazed hams and to finish an impressive chocolate smash station – where they can smash their way through chocolate baubles and Santa’s.
‘Our menu offering year-round centres around flavour, and the flavour of Christmas in Australia is stone fruits – cherries, nectarines, apricots – but there’s also those traditional flavours that are incorporated including spices such as cloves and star anise that highlight those mulled wine tastes.
‘A modern take on a traditional Christmas to us really focuses on the well-known flavours, but delivering them with a few innovative techniques. Weve adapted a lot of slow cooking methods, like a sous vide turkey that has been in brine overnight, and rolled into a roulade shape. Usually, you will use a stuffing of rosemary and fennel – but we’ve used mince tarts with a dried fruit flavour soaked in rum, thyme and orange zest.
We’re really proud of our Festive Feast this year and we know our guests are going to look at this spread and say – ‘Wow, I wish Christmas Day at my house looked like this!‘”
