Complete Your Easter Feast With These Roasted Meats Delivered to Your Home
With the new measures dubbed "circuit breaker" introduced by the government last week to combat coronavirus, we will all need to stay home for Easter Sunday celebration. That doesn't mean cooking up everything yourself when our favourite chefs are offering their signature roasts for delivery. Here's what you need to complete your sumptuous spread.
1/4 Ma Cuisine
Poulet de Bresse Rôti
It’s always a good idea to include roast chicken in your feast, and chef-owner Mathieu Escoffier’s version features premium Bresse chicken brined in a mix of salt, water, soy sauce and olive oil for 36 hours. This ensures flavours are infused down to the core.
It’s roasted for 25 minutes and left to rest for another 25 minutes to ensure it has succulent meat and extra-crisp skin. Escoffier serves it with pan-seared foie gras “to enhance the taste and give extra texture” and recommends having it with champagne. Additional sides such as macaroni and truffle and organic carrot puree are available separately, and orders should be placed at least one day in advance.

2/4 Oxwell & Co
How about a roasted lamb as the centrepiece of your Easter Feast? The culinary team’s version features the joint marinated for 24 hours in a concoction of rosemary (from their rooftop garden), organic garlic, parsley, sea salt and freshly-cracked pepper. Once the beautiful flavours are infused down to the core, it’s slow-roasted for six hours to render the meat fork-tender before it’s cooked on the grill for a smoky and crisp finish.
The roasted lamb comes with roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and homemade gravy, but you have the option to include more side dishes such as roasted baby carrots with brandy butter and sesame seeds; charred brussel sprouts with smoked bacon and maple butter; and baked cauliflower cheese with gruyere and bechamel. Orders should be placed at least one day in advance.

Roast Fillet of Beef
Give your celebration a British touch with this classic and hearty dish. Black Angus beef is cooked sous vide for 1.5 hours to attain a tender texture with the meaty flavours still intact, then finished on the grill for a beautiful sear. The dish comes with the usual accompaniments of Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables, cheese-baked cauliflower cheese and traditional gravy. Just for Easter Sunday, the culinary team will also toss in complimentary Scotch eggs to your spread. Orders should be placed at least one day in advance.
4/4 Salted & Hung
Guaranteed to be a hit on the dining table, chef Drew Nocente’s signature pork dish features perfectly juicy and seasoned meat, finished with the most amazing crackling. One serving is good for three people, and an advanced order of three days is required.
