When it comes to embracing the spirit of the holiday season, few experiences can rival a hearty Christmas dinner.
At Rosen Centre, this festive celebration takes on a whole new dimension through the likes of a holiday buffet, transporting guests into a world of culinary wonder that mirrors the magic of the season itself.
The journey into this gastronomic wonderland begins with an array of soups and salads that tantalize the taste buds.
These are not just your average starters; they’re a harmonious blend of textures and tastes that prepare you for the main course to come.
Imagine savoring the exotic flavors of coconut-curry sweet potato soup or delighting in the heartwarming embrace of chicken pho with rice noodles, ginger, and shiitake mushrooms.
Holiday Hors d’oeuvres
Moving forward, the buffet unveils a captivating charcuterie display of local and international cheeses, complemented by a tropical fruit medley.
Here, you can savor the likes of mango and ginger Stilton, Manchego, and Irish porter. Paired with seasonal melons, berries, pineapple, mango, papaya, mandarin, and cracked coconut, it’s a sensory journey that showcases the world’s finest treasures.
The edible adventure continues with the antipasto display, where marinated artichokes, asparagus, olives, fresh pesto mozzarella, and heirloom tomatoes take the spotlight.
This is where you encounter the symphony of Mediterranean flavors, from peppadews to roasted peppers, capicola, mortadella, and salami. Marinated white beans with roasted tomatoes and torn basil add a rustic touch to this exquisite selection.
Something for Everyone
For ‘a-fish-onados’, the buffet offers a bountiful seafood station. Whether you like your fish smoked with capers or wrapped up in seaweed, Centre has it all. The Thai coconut calamari salad adds an elegant touch to this oceanic delight.
Carb lovers will be transported to a Christmas spent in the hills of Italy with our pasta station, harnessing endless opportunities for an empty stomach.
Gemelli pasta, crispy pork belly, bourbon maple-roasted honeynut squash, and forest mushrooms are sure to appease.
For someone with a more exotic palate, the 98Forty station serves up mango BBQ-glazed pork ribs and made-to-order shredded beef quesadillas, accompanied by Chihuahua queso, Pico de Gallo, and avocado crema.
Even the little ones have their own special corner at the Christmas buffet, with crispy chicken tenders, mac and cheese, buttered corn, and mini meatball mozzarella in tomato sauce.
Hot Christmas Buffet Entrees
The hot buffet takes center stage, where the show-stopping entrees reside such as a carved smoked ham and roasted pineapple honey mango chutney, or a skillet-seared chicken breast with braised kumquats and cilantro butter, just to name a few.
With so many options, ‘all you can eat’ takes on a whole new meaning!
