Around the Table – December 18, 2019

HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

The holidays! They all happen so fast. By the time we’ve finished Thanksgiving it is time to start planning the holiday dinner menu. A day when hearts are as full as serving platters and warm as mugs of apple cider (or spiked apple cider for some of you). It’s important to enjoy the holiday, and culinary, memories with your family, neighbors and friends and welcome this holiday season with a comforting cornucopia of food and good cheer! 

HOLIDAY COOKING

If there’s one region in the United States that really does the holiday season right, it must be the South. With its own unique traditions, politeness and friendliness, the South is a magical place to spend the holiday season. What this region lacks in snow and that special holiday chill in the air, it makes up for with some of the best cooking in the country. As chefs, sometimes we’re cooking rich cuisine featuring fruits and vegetables or hearty starches and meats – either way, it’s the time of the year for us to shine! We’re excited to celebrate with you by providing a few holiday favorites for your feast. I hope you’re in the holiday spirit, because we wouldn’t have it any other way!
