Have you been wondering what to cook on Christmas Day? While it can be lots of fun dreaming about your Christmas menu, the ‘doing’ of a Christmas Day menu can be significantly less enjoyable.

Picture yourself at the seafood markets in a queue that stretches 20 people deep. This is after it took half an hour to find a park, and you’ve only just started your food shopping.

You get to the next stop and all the meringue cases are sold out, the only turkeys left are big enough to feed 20 people, and you are half way home before you realise you forgot to buy cranberry sauce.

How’s your blood pressure? Why not give the whole circus a miss this year and order Food Adventura’s Christmas Catering?

The other benefit of ordering your Christmas catering from Food Adventura is that it’s prepped by skilled Chefs so it taste amazing, looks gorgeous and is portioned accurately (and generously).

No more flat pavlovas, dry turkeys or mountains of coleslaw (that nobody eats)!

We have ready-to-cook turkey, all trussed up with sage, onion and pancetta and ready to go, honey-glazed Australian ham, ready-to-heat veggies, including our signature decadent duck fat roast potatoes, fresh salads that will actually get eaten (our ‘coleslaw’ is a slaw of cabbage, fennel and radicchio with chipotle dressing and spicy nuts), not to mention antipasto and cheese platters with the best hand selected cheese from Australia, France and Spain, as well as homemade dairy-free dips.

If your family goes bananas for a prawn, or doolally over oysters, we’ve got you covered with loads of fresh Aussie Seafood. From platters of king prawns to Sydney rock oysters and Tasmanian salmon gravlax, our seafood platters come with all the sauces, lemons and trimmings you need to avoid any last minute dashes to the corner store.

For the family sweet tooth (and let’s face it – that’s everyone on Christmas Day), we have homemade mince pies and panettone layered with your choice of artisan gelato and covered in chocolate. This is irresistible to even the grumpiest Grinches!

Orders close on December 16 so choose from the menu below and sit back and relax this December 25th!

We will deliver on Christmas Eve within 25kms of Sydney CBD for a $50 fee, or you can pick up from our Balmain kitchen on Christmas Eve.
