IT’S one big last hurrah for a very challenging 2020 and one warm welcome for a hopefully better 2021 on New Year’s Eve, December31, 2020. It has been a generally difficult year, but there is still a lot to be thankful for, so a celebration, which can be small and intimate and done quietly at home, is still in order.
Give it a positive push with a festive Media Noche, without necessarily having to prepare a feast on your own and slaving it out in the kitchen. A good option: Order food from a trusted and reliable restaurant or caterer who whips up good food without much fuss.
Cravings, for one, has come up with a special menu that combines Cravings Classics and new creations. For starters, there is the Cravings Classic Caesar Salad or the Pomegranate Goat Cheese Salad, both good for 8 to 10 persons.
For main dishes, meat lovers would enjoy Roast Beef with Mushroom Sauce, Lengua con Champignon, Chicken Pastel, Roast Pork Belly, Chicken Galantina, Chicken Relleno, and Roast Chicken with Chorizo and Raisin Stuffing.
Options for seafood lovers are Prawns ala Thermidor, Roast Salmon with Parmesan Crust (served with Pasta Primavera), and Almond Crusted Fish Fillet with Tartare Sauce.
For pasta, there’s Chorizo Pasta, Meaty Bolognese, and Lasagna.
To make it easy for families who want convenience and a hassle-free celebration, they can opt for the Cravings Christmas Set Menu, which is perfect for 8 to 10 persons and includes some of the best dishes of Cravings, plus a Christmas Cake.
For small groups, there are three sets of Cravings Christmas Party Boxes to choose from—the first one highlighting Roast Beef with Mushroom Sauce and Almond Crusted Fish Fillet, the second one featuring Chicken Cordon Bleu and American Baked Spareribs, and the third set showcasing Lechon Pork Belly and Fish Escabeche. All sets come with rice and a dessert.
