Whether you open your gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, consider treating your family to a very special Christmas brunch in the Cayman Islands on Dec. 25.
Grand Old House is offering a variety of chef-prepared dishes and fresh and delicious sides and desserts, all highlighting ingredients from local farmers and fishermen. Brunch starts at 11:30 a.m. on Christmas Day and features fine dining at one of the best waterfront restaurants in the Cayman Islands. Also, choose from a very large Cayman Islands wine list, including festive sparkling wines, Champagne, and a host of red and white wines from Bordeaux, Austria, Italy, Spain, Germany and California, among other regions, to pair with your brunch choices.
Among the many excellent choices are chef-prepared eggs (your favourite style) or pasta, or request a special cut from the meat carving station. And of course, now that you are in the Caribbean, seafood is most likely at the top of the list. The selection at the Christmas brunch at Grand Old House will surprise and delight you! Choose from sushi, including nigiri, sashimi, seafood salads, ceviche and mussels.
If anyone in your group is vegetarian or vegan, no need to worry. Select vegan curry (root vegetables, savoury rice, mango chutney and papadam) or vegetarian pasta (fusilli with roasted pumpkin, eggplant, mushroom, garlic and pine nuts, all accented with fresh basil, chili flakes, extra virgin olive oil and shaved manchego cheese). A variety of hearty salads are offered, as well as hot and cold soups.
For others whose diets are not restrictive, Grand Old House delivers pan-roasted lobster, bacon-wrapped local wahoo, seafood combo curry, sea bass and grouper. Lamb, chicken and beef entrees will entice you – and you can savour a taste of each at this extravagant brunch. You may also choose to add unlimited bubbly accompaniments for a small additional price. Meal price is reduced for children ages 4 to 12.
Having said all of that, there is one more item to attend to: dessert! What could be more tempting than a chocolate tart, a coffee crème brûlée, passionfruit cheesecake, or red velvet chocolate lava cake? There are also gluten-free options – pistachio macaron, raspberry ice cream, chocolate truffle and chickpea brownies.
If for some reason you prefer to skip dessert, you are fortunate to have found yourself in one of the best Cayman Islands wine shops. You will find nearly 25 dessert wines, including moscato from Italy, sauternes from France and dolce from Napa Valley, California.
