Each product clearly states whether or not they can be delivered hot or chilled.
What is ‘Delivered Hot’?
In summary, only Turkeys, Cajun Seafood Boil, Shepherds Pie, and other fried finger snacks will have the option of being delivered hot. The rationale for doing this mainly for turkeys is because most households do not have a microwave big enough to heat up a 4 kg bird. Hence, we offer to do it for you!
What is ‘Delivered Cooked and Chilled’?
Most of our other dishes, are offered to be delivered cooked and chilled. They are cooked, kept chilled to preserve its taste and freshness, and can be easily placed into any household microwave oven to be heated.
Some meats take longer than others to cook. For instance, a standard 4.5 kg (10 lbs) Turkey may require you a total of 12 hours to roast, inclusive of time taken to marinate and so on. Planning for a Christmas feast can quite the chore, and that’s where we come in to help!
All your orders are cooked at an appropriate time before your date and time of delivery. It is worth noting that our special concoction of seasonings, that have been so well loved by our past customers, do a fantastic job in accentuating the taste of our meats. We hand rub these seasonings into the meats, sealing the taste beneath the fibres of the tender meat.
Singapore Food Agency (SFA) recommends that hot food should be kept piping hot (above 60°C) and cold food should be kept in the fridge (below 5°C) until it is time to eat, to reduce the risk of food poisoning.
