Christmas is in the air now that December is here. The weather may not be apt right at this moment but it will certainly help to plan the big do well in advance. True, Christmas is the time to celebrate with friends and family but your office colleagues also happen to be your friends too. It is all the more reason to treat your employees to a delicious Christmas Lunch a few days before the event. So, do keep it discrete and surprise the entire office crowd by taking them to STEAM, the 100% Indian vegetarian eatery across Rotorua.
Christmas and vegetarian may seem to be a bit farfetched but one cannot be too careful about the ill effects of filling one’s body with the toxins that accumulate in your body due to over consumption of animal fat. However, you would have to settle the following before inviting the entire brigade to enjoy a sumptuous Christmas lunch or dinner party courtesy the employer.
Date- Checking the calendar is of utmost importance and you need to finalize a weekend close enough to the D-Day to make the party truly a Christmas celebration.
Budget- The food, décor and entertainment would need to be within your budget too. Do not overshoot it by spending beyond reason.
Venue- Right! This one happens to be all-important! The office premises would be out of question unless you have a banquet hall or huge conference room available to decorate freely. It would, however, be advisable to head for STEAM right away when you are eager to present your employees with something that had not been done before.
Food- This is indeed the icing on the cake so to speak. While there will be no cake or roast turkey or even eggnog to go around, the Christmas Spirit will be revived via a vegetarian menu that will have your team licking their lips and holding out their plates, asking for more.
Begin the day with a glass of New Zealand Sparkling wine and advance to the Moet Champagne as you partake of the excellent dishes that come in one by one. You might want to start with a light and refreshing lemon coriander soup and then use your fingers to sample the starters that come forth from the insides of a tandoor oven.
Pick the malai kofta that melts in your mouth while the ones looking to enhance their spice quotient can tuck into the authentic veg. Kolhapuri from down South of India. You just cannot miss the soft succulent dish of paneer lababdar either while the less adventurous would be able to do justice to their portions of cheese butter masala.
Be sure to choose the soft and buttery stuffed Naan or a steaming pot of hot veg biryani as sides and you will not miss the roast turkey with the ubiquitous cranberry stuffing this time. Wrap up the delightful lunch on a sweet note by ordering a gajar ka halva instead of the quintessential Christmas Cake.
