“Fairmont understands that sustainable travel is not about giving something up; it is about gaining something more - a great vacation that also helps to make the world a better place.” Costas Christ, Global Sustainability Strategist, Virtuoso Travel Network and Senior Advisor for Sustainable Tourism, National Geographic Travel

Chris Niven Executive Chef - Fairmont St Andrews
1 First, preheat your oven to 180°C. Heat both oils in a wok or frying pan until they are very hot, then add the turkey, carrot, garlic and ginger and cook for two minutes. 2 Next, add the sliced brussel sprouts, soy sauce and oyster sauce and cook for a further two minutes, before removing from the heat and adding the bean sprouts. Be sure to drain off any excess liquid to ensure your spring rolls come out perfectly crispy. 3 To fill the rolls, separate and place the spring roll wrappers onto your work surface, with the points of the square pointing up and down in a diamond shape. 4 Spoon approximately two tablespoons of the turkey filling in a line across the centre of the wrapper and fold the bottom point up to cover the filling. Fold the two side points in on top of the folded wrapper, to fully enclose the filling. The two side points should be about 2.5cm apart. 5 Firmly but gently, roll the spring roll into a tight cylinder. Be sure to roll the wrapper over to firmly press down the remaining point. Set the filled wrappers seam-side down onto the prepared baking trays so they don’t touch. The rolls should be about the thickness of a finger. Brush each roll with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Fairmont St Andrews’ Turkey and Brussel Sprout Spring Rolls with Cranberry Dipping Sauce “Christmas is my favourite time of year! Being able to enjoy a crisp walk along the coastline before warming up beside a cosy fireplace with some comfort food is what it’s all about, so naturally I want to elongate the experience as long as possible. Using Christmas leftovers to create new dishes is something I try to do each year, so that the festive season can last even longer!”

Frederic Breuil Executive Chef - Fairmont Le Montreux Palace
“Eating every edible part of an ingredient not only helps reduce food waste but also ensures we get the most out of its nutrients. Most of a vegetable’s nutrients are found within the skin, so I always seek to find different ways to include all of the vegetable in my dishes, from brushing the skin before cooking to incorporating the ends into delicious sauces.”
Fairmont Le Montreux Palace’s Veggie Pie
1 Pre-heat your oven to 200°C.
Potatoes Olive oil Cheese, grated Crushed garlic clove Finely chopped red onion Finely chopped celery stalks Roughly chopped fennel root Finely chopped red chilli

Add the zest of 1/2 a lemon and the juice of the full lemon. Season with salt and pepper. 5 Once the potatoes are boiled, mash them with olive oil or butter and add in the remaining cheese (100g) and mash until smooth.

Fairmont Quasar Istanbul’s Crispy Turkey Ball with Bread-Based Pasta and Mushroom Sauce “The wonderful thing about leftovers is that they can easily be transformed into another delicious meal by using ingredients that you usually keep in your kitchen cupboard. Something as simple as adding a little flour, egg and breadcrumbs to your turkey can create a crispy turkey ball that creates the perfect focus for an entirely different meal.”
This particular recipe consists of a bread-based pasta, crispy fried turkey ball, mushroom sauce with turkey jus and vegetables.
250g 50g 20g 1

Michael Pagnacco Executive Chef - Fairmont Waterfront
“I’m not sure why we only tend to eat turkey at this time of year, because it’s actually one of my favourite things to cook. Turkey is an extremely versatile meat and whilst I wouldn’t imagine there’ll be much left if you’ve cooked it right first time around, this recipe will ensure whatever is leftover doesn’t go to waste!”

““When our local farmer produces such an exquisite specimen like a carrot, we celebrate the hard work and passion that has gone into the product by showcasing the complete usage – from top to stem.”
Fairmont Banff Springs’ Carrot Tartare

“Ingredients take a lot of time, passion, and at times, heartache to produce. It is our responsibility as culinarians to be creative in our techniques and utilise every morsel that comes through the door.”
Fairmont Pacific Rim’s Turkey Tortellini
1 Making the filling: Heat the duck fat in a pot over medium high heat. Add the onion, carrot, and celery; sauté until vegetables soften and onions are translucent. Add garlic and lightly sauté. Add the turkey meat and sauté until everything is slightly caramelized. Deglaze the pot with wine and reduce by two thirds. Add the stock and reduce by two thirds. Remove from the heat and let it cool. Transfer the filling to a tray and refrigerate to thoroughly chill. Add the filling to a fine mincer or food processor and blend or mince the mixture. Stir in the parmesan and parsley. Taste and season with salt if needed; set aside. 2 Making the dough: Whisk together all the wet ingredients. Combine flour and salt in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the well while slowly mixing in the flour. Once the dough comes together, transfer it to a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Let it rest for at least 1 hour. 3 Shaping the tortellini: With a pasta maker, gradually work your way down to 1.5mm thickness (around two stops from the lowest setting). Use a round, 3inch cutter to cut out circles from the dough. Place a heaped teaspoon of filling in the centre of each circle. Brush half of the edges with a little water and fold into half-moons, removing as much air as possible. Bring the ends together and pinch to create the tortellini. 4 Making the jus gras: If there is less than 2 cups of pan juices reserved, make up the rest with turkey or chicken broth. Combine in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Add the giblets and whisk in the butter. Pass the jus through a fine sieve and thicken with a little cornflour if needed. Season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside. 5 Making the parmesan oil: In a small pan, combine the olive oil and parmesan cheese. Stir over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes, until the parmesan melts. Remove from heat and strain. Store in a sealed, sterilised jar if not using right away.

Belinda Bowles Head Designer Florist - The Savoy, a Fairmont managed hotel
The Savoy’s Head Designer Florist, Belinda Bowles, has shared some additional tips to help you create sustainable decorations that are as elegant as they are green.

Fairmont is part of Accor, a world-leading augmented hospitality group offering unique experiences in 4,900 hotels and residences across 110 countries.
“A simple, yet elegant way of decorating a table is to use petals from flowers. Once your flowers start to wilt remove those petals that still have a vibrancy in them, as these will look best. You can either scatter them on the table that day or, if you want to utilise them at another time, dry them in a dark, ventilated space such as an unused cupboard. This works particularly well with roses and is the perfect way to get more out of your flowers, while creating sustainable décor for the table.” “Christmas trees are, of course, the epitome of decorations at this time of year. Many are recycled or disposed of immediately after the festive season, but by buying a potted Christmas tree, you can replant it once all the decorations have come down. It’s ideal not only for reusing the tree in a sustainable way but also for supporting the environment. I personally keep mine in a patio plant pot so I can continue to bring it inside the house as our Christmas Tree every year. It truly gives the tree more life!”
