What’s new

- New Holiday Menus

The holiday season isn’t that far off, and we’ve taken it upon ourselves to be ready for it now by crafting a few new holiday menus. We took our inspiration from traditional holiday favourites – turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce – and came up with some new ways of serving them, and some new flavours to include with them. We’ve also created some fresh options for your holiday entertaining needs, in case you want something a little less standard, and maybe a little more memorable.

 

For our sit-down dinners, we start the meal with a choice of our scrumptious hors d’oeuvres, including puff pastry tarts with goat cheese and roasted figs, and mini filet mignon beef wellington. When you and your guests reach the main course, you’ll have the chance to indulge in chicken supreme stuffed with shitake mushrooms, New York strip steak, miso-crusted salmon, or a traditional roast turkey.
 
If you have a big crowd that needs to be fed, have a look at our holiday buffet menu. Your guests can have their fill of slow cooked roast beef with au jus, as well as butter basted turkey. We’ve also got a slew of tasty sides to go with them, including roasted root vegetables; roasted sweet potatoes with olive oil and fresh herbs; garlic-infused mashed potatoes; and stuffing made with carrots, cranberries, celery, and rosemary.
 
We know that the holidays bring together not just adults, but kids as well. With that in mind, we’ve come up with a children’s holiday menu. It includes mac and cheese, sweet and sour turkey meatballs, and even a Belgian waffle station! Remember, it’s for the kids.
 
In years past, some of our clients have hosted holiday get-togethers that only required some small eats, not turkey dinners with all the fixings. If you’re looking to host a party like that this holiday season, turn to our holiday cocktail menu. You and your guests can mix and mingle while nibbling on hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, a jumbo shrimp pyramid, and our signature turkeytinis –individual servings of turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce, all served in martini glasses.
 
Of course, if you want to tailor a menu for your next personal or corporate event, give us a call and we’ll work out the details.
 
Happy Holidays!
 
Old favourites, served in new ways
 
At most Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, you know what to expect. There will be mashed potatoes. There will be cranberry sauce. There will be stuffing. And of course there will be a turkey that had been roasting in the oven for hours before your arrival. All of those standards are typically on holiday menus for a reason – they’re traditional dishes that taste great! But that doesn’t mean they have to be served the same way year after year after year. And that doesn’t mean there can’t be a few new flavours added to the holiday dinner table. Our chefs thought about putting a fresh twist on holiday dining, and here’s what they’ve come up with.
 
Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs: Kids can be picky eaters, even when there’s a fancy holiday spread available to them. For our children’s holiday menu, we thought of making turkey in new way – meatballs. Then we added a sweet and sour sauce to create a whole new way of eating turkey that we hope kids will love.
 
Flavours of Spain Platter: Holiday dinners aren’t the same all over the world, of course. So if you want to bring some new flavours to your holiday event this year, try out this Spanish-inspired platter that comes with patata bravas (fried potato chunks), chorizo, cantimpalo salami, crisp Serrano ham, fire-roasted peppers, and fresh baguettes. This platter is excellent for sharing with friends and family, and isn’t that what the holidays are all about?
 
Turkeytinis: You read that right, but it might not be what you think. No, we didn’t create some sort of turkey-gin hybrid alcoholic beverage. And no, we didn’t puree a turkey dinner and pour it into a glass. What we did was take small portions of butter basted turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and cranberry sauce and place them carefully together in a martini glass. It’s an edible cocktail that’s perfect for parties.
