Pre-prepared takeout Christmas dinners in Halifax, Montreal, Calgary and Ottawa
I'm researching a story on high-end, pre-prepared takeout Christmas dinners for DRIVEN Magazine – a Toronto-based, men's lifestyle publication – and I'm having trouble sourcing caterers/hotels/restaurants that provide this service in Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary and Halifax.
For example, the Royal York Hotel in Toronto does a Christmas To Go service.
Can anyone recommend some names of caterers/hotels or restaurants that provide something similar for the holidays?
The Westin in Calgary has a Christmas Take out service. We used it last year and although it is not particularily cheap it wasn't bad, except the mixed veg they put together.
I have purchased the Sunterra Christmas dinner and cannot recommend it. I was just lucky that I had real food in my fridge to supplement the meal or I would have had some very hungry family members. The portions were very skimpy. I even had to add greens to the salad or we would have had only 3 or 4 leaves per person on the plate. Seriously! I had six for dinner and there were only 4 cherry tomatoes in the "appetizer" salad. Was I supposed to chop these up? Since this experience I have just cooked my own Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners which I don't mind but I sure wish I could arrange for some elves to come in and clean up after!
