Nest Brisbane’s Michelin rated chef, Kenneth Burton has created a Christmas menu with a twist. Its a take on your classic Christmas dishes entwined with an influence of the East. A fuss free Christmas is the way to go, sparing up time for what’s really important, family and friends. I was lucky enough to sample the Christmas menu on offer before hand and I will give you my assurance that it was perfection!
Moreton Bay bug, mango, avocado and a coriander tian, fresh chilli, micro salad. This dish is my description of a Queensland Christmas. Fresh, light and delicious. Prawn and mango work an absolute treat together. A perfect sized entree that will be the talk of the table.
No Christmas dinner is complete without Ham or Turkey. A combination of the two, is what makes the main so exciting. Every bite left me wanting more. Turkey, pistachio, chestnut and rooftop honey glazed ham crusted roulade with five spiced pumpkin mash, wok fried tamarind greens and beetroot essence. Nothing short of perfection; all the flavours of a traditional Christmas dinner entwined together to create a marvellous feast.
If you have a sweet tooth then I know you will love dessert. For me personally, I found the dessert way to sweet, but that’s just me. I have never been a fan of Christmas puddings. I would prefer a simple fruit platter to finish my meal. But it is Christmas and tis the season to indulge. Warm plum pudding served with cinnamon ice cream, brandy anglaise plus a summer berry and Thai basil salsa.
