We’re not trying to scare you, but Christmas is next Friday. That means that it’s basically crunch time now for getting your gifts and your holiday plans squared away. But as for the food; well that’s a completely different issue to deal with.
But fear not, as most of you already know, when in doubt we’re here and ready to help. So whether you’re in need of some crabs for Christmas or some sweets for Santa, we’ve got three brands worth of holiday goodies to get the job done.
From Mackenzie Limited- Hors d’oeuvres and Desserts
We believe that the meal should be delicious from beginning to end. Therefore we offer a variety of tasty holiday starters and desserts to ensure that your entire holiday meal will leave everyone at the table happy and satisfied.
It’s the sweet and salty gift that keeps on giving. The dates come stuffed with moderately spicy chorizo wrapped in bacon, which creates a appetizer so sophisticated, but yet so simple. The taste of them will also leave a symphony of flavors in your mouth, as the saltiness and wood smoke flavor of the bacon melds with the natural sweetness of the dates. It’s a classic hors d’oeuvre fit for any holiday party.
For those guests feeling a little crabby, butter them up. Our scrumptious crab
wellingtons will do just the trick. Chunks of sweet blue crab and spring asparagus are covered in a buttery citrus sauce and enrobed in a flaky puff pastry, making a starter that will lighten up the mood and heighten up the happiness.
Not going away for the holidays, well than bring the trip to you. Our brie en croute is soft and ripened with fresh French brie to make an exquisite exotic starter that you can share with all your guests. You can choose between mushroom garlic or apple pecan, but either way you’ll have a delicate puff pastry that’s filled with great flavor and happiness for every hungry stomach.
Give or take, the holidays are basically the best time time to indulge. So of course you have to do it right– with Christmas pudding of course. Enjoy the splendor of a traditional Christmas pudding. It’s a moist and fruit filled pudding that’s as intoxicating to eat as it is to look at it. And it gives you that perfect rich and sugary fix that everyone craves during the holidays.
Or, if you want to make it a little more traditional, try our fruit cake. Ripe cherries, fresh succulent pineapple, plump raisins, crunchy almonds, pecans, and English walnuts make up a cake that’s been blended with the perfect amount of Bourbon, rum, and brandy to create a food lover’s masterpiece. We’ve tried a lot of fruit cakes over the years, so trust us on this one. It’s love at first bite for anyone.
But in the event that you crave something with a little more chocolate, we are absolutely prepared for that. We give you, our festive truffle box. Each box is lovingly handcrafted out of fine milk chocolate and adorns a artful holiday wreath design. But that’s not even the best part. They’re filled with an assortment of 20 large truffles, each with its own unique flavor. If you’re a chocolate lover, this will literally satisfy.
From Impromptu Gourmet: Sides
Although you wouldn’t think so, side dishes are extremely important. Why?Think about it this way: when you pair it with cheese, one wrong pair and you’re left with a pretty awful combination and taste on your tongue. So when it comes to side dishes, it matters because combinations matter.
So when in doubt, deck out the mac & cheese. There’s arguably nothing mac & cheese doesn’t go with, especially ours. Loaded with a cheese sauce made from Gouda, Mozzarella, Parmesan, and Cheddar cheese, our mac and cheese packs some seriously rich and delicious flavor. And to make it better, we topped it off with smoky farmhouse bacon and a nice crunchy breadcrumb topping. It’s one mac and cheese that has no equal.
Or if you want to add a little festive spin to your side dish, try the sauteed spinach with pine nuts out. Chopped spinach is laced with toasted pine nuts,
garlic, and a zesty cream sauce making a delicious side dish with all the fresh flavors of winter and pine trees. No one will honestly be able to resist eating this up.
From Chesapeake Bay Crab Cakes & More: Entrees
But of course, a meal wouldn’t be a meal without the main dish. However, we’ve always been advocates for unique dinners. So why not add a little pizzazz to this year’s main events?
Yes, we are aware that Lasagna is the ultimate comfort food. But special occasions call for special exceptions. Our seafood lasagna steps the game up a notch. Piled high with imported Italian cheese, fresh pasta, baby shrimp, buttery scallops, and lump crab meat, this lasagna will have you hooked after one bite (no pun intended).
But as the saying goes, we’ve saved the best for last. Like the popular song, we seriously have a thing for wanting crabs during Christmas. However, we’re sure we’re not the only ones. So for all the devout seafood lovers out there, we have exactly what you’re looking for this holiday. Our crab cakes start with fresh hand-picked jumbo lump crab meat and are finished with just the right amount of our signature seasons and spices and binders to make a crab cake so good and so tasty that it seriously is a tasty crab cake.
