Christmas Hacks: Singapore gourmet stores to visit for festive ingredients

Swiss Butchery

Tuck into this succulent roast turkey from Swiss Butchery

If you’re looking to splurge on one unforgettable night of great food and revelry, Swiss Butchery holds all the artisanal provisions you’d need. Indulge in a decadent surf and turf with premium cuts like the Matsusaka A5 beef, have it dry aged, then pair that with sashimi-grade scallops, monk fish or freshly shucked oysters. This Christmas, order a pecan crusted ham, new and exclusive to Swiss Butchery, or a full-bodied Beechwood smoked roast turkey. The turkeys are roasted fresh on the day of collection. Don’t forget to pick up some nougat and panettone as Christmas gifts. 56 Tanglin Road, Tel: 6235-8080, or 30 Greenwood Ave, swissbutchery.com.sg

Culina

Culina's Pure Indulgence hamper

You’d find plenty of premium options at Culina, from meats, seafood and cheeses to dried goods. The specialty gourmet store also offers seasonal produce, such as Périgord black truffle and Bouchot mussels, which are available through the New Year. Coincidentally, both would make great accompaniments to an elegant Christmas dinner party. Look out too for the luxurious hampers filled with fine gourmet products and champagne – perfect for gifts. For festive tipples, Culina’s cellar holds over 30 brands of Old and New World wines, including biodynamic and organic ranges. #01-13, 8 Dempsey Road, Tel: 6474-7338, culina.com.sg

Huber’s Butchery

Pick up a roast turkey from Huber's Butchery this Christmas

While their dedication to quality means they don’t offer pre-cooked meals, the folks at Huber’s will take care of the defrosting, marinating and stuffing, so you’d only need to pre-heat the oven and wait. Besides traditional centrepieces like turkey, bone-in ham, and homemade stuffing and chipolatas, you’d also find fancier alternatives like duck and goose with giblets, pigeon, quail and veal. Their sizeable grocery department is also chockfull of European pantry staples and an amazing range of cheeses. 22 Dempsey Road, Tel: 6737-1588, hubers.com.sg
