That's right, we've compiled a list of places where you can get everything you need for Christmas. And we wouldn't be in Egypt unless each and every single of these things could be delivered to your doorstep...
Christmas is an opportunity for most of us to stuff our faces: turkey, cookies and pumpkin pie in quantities that will go straight to the hips and stay there past Christmas. Unfortunately, eating all these festive delicacies will also cost a lot of effort to produce, unless...
The Ramses Hilton
The Ramses Hilton delivers variations of Christmas cookies, Yule logs, stollen, gingerbread and even full turkeys, cooked to perfection, including servings of khalta rice, just like the ones they serve in-house. Cookie assortment boxes are available between LE32 and LE74. A succulent turkey prepared by the amazing chefs of the Ramses Hilton is ready to be taken home for LE682. All prices are subject to a 10% tax.
Having a bunch of people coming over who expect a decadent Christmas meal but you're a menace in the kitchen? Worry not, La Bodega might be closed but their catering team will bring the entire meal to you. The turkey dinner and matching desserts come in different sizes. The traditional French Christmas dessert Buche de Noel, a chocolate and mocha cake including sauces, can be delivered as well as the turkey.
A whole baked stuffed turkey with traditional garnish that serves up to 12 persons can be yours, delivered to your front door, for LE955 inclusive taxes, or add LE285 to get a serving of Buche de Noel for the same amount of people (or LE150 for 6 persons). The 20 persons version of the turkey will be on the way for LE1785. Orders must be placed 48 hours before delivery date.
The Marriott Zamalek
"Turkey To Go" has to become a thing, if it isn't already. The Bakery at the Marriott offers a prepared, delicious turkey to go in a variety of sizes, catering to your needs at small or large Christmas parties. The smallest turkey, serving 6 to 8 people, goes home with you for LE735 plus tax. The slightly larger one, serving 8 to 10 people, is yours for LE915. The big bird, serving 10 to 12 people, feeds your Christmas banquet for LE1045.
Kozbara Catering service will provide you with turkey just as much as they will cater your Italian, sea food or Egyptian meals for you to impress your guests. Serving large groups for up to 200 people is no problem for them. Other special goodies you may choose from their list include a chocolate fountain, an assortment of vegetables and other meats and cheese platters.
Price: Turkey served with Basmati Rice with raisins and walnuts is yours for LE1000. An entire Shawerma station could bring a twist to your Christmas party for LE1500-1700. Kozbara also serve fixed themed menus in buffet form including antipasti, salads, mains and desserts for between LE120-150, depending on how many people are in your party.
