It's everything but the turkey this year as far as Chef Pierre MC of Croisette Cafe is concerned. Like the proverbial magician, the French chef has pulled out notable options from his oven: capon, pork loin, Aussie beef striploin and lamb leg in place of the big bird.

Family feasts and home parties are made hassle-free by the Croisette Cafe team as they're offering festive roasts for dine-in as well as takeaways this year. Just give the chef advance notice and you can be the perfect host this Christmas.
|In the pink...juicy roast striploin to sink your teeth into|
Our top pick is the Aussie beef striploin (RM210/kg), best served medium rare. The mildly gamey roast Aussie lamb leg (RM160/kg) weighing in at about 2.5-3kg is ample for a party of 6-10 persons.
|Great bites to be had out of this lean and muscly capon|
Not into red meat? Then consider a 3kg capon (castrated male chook, RM95/kg) roasted whole as the alternative. The slightly muscly meat has a nice resistant springiness to it and tasty juiciness to it, the more you chew on it.
|Go green with some Caesar salad topped with poached eggs and REAL bacon|
You can complement these roasts with Caesar Salad with streaky bacon (or smoked salmon) at RM25/kg (yields 5-6 portions), Ratatouille (Mediterranean medley) at RM35/kg and Roast Potato (RM35/kg).
|Aussie lamb leg that's just as ideal to kick-start your Yuletide celebrations|
|Take away these pretty jars filled with rich sauces and desserts for an easy DIY festive dinner|
Also available are pretty beribboned mason jars of country-style pork liver pate (RM48/kg) and prawn bisque with rouille and croutons (RM35/500g jar; 2 servings). House dessert such as Bavarois Mango/Raspberry, Trio Choc Cake and Passion Indulgence Cake are also available at RM28/half kg.
