Delicious ideas to really wow your guests with Chef Jamie Gwen
The best part about the holidays is the food, and for those people hosting a holiday dinner party this year, it is time to get in gear.
When it comes to the classics like turkey – all cooks simply need to look towards spices! Experimenting with spices is an easy, fun and healthful way to amp up the flavor and there is no better way to do that than with Spice Islands. Spice Islands is line of premium spices and seasonings and what makes them premium are the steps taken to ensure quality, consistency and natural oils – which is what affects the flavor of a spice. And it’s truly amazing what you can do once you get comfortable using them!
Think about making a rub for your turkey incorporating crushed rosemary, Saigon cinnamon, thyme, onion powder and garlic powder. Another good idea is to try a delicious cranberry apply chutney and a butternut squash soup with thyme.
Creating fun recipes for guests with food allergies or dietary restrictions:
A great crowd-pleaser to try is an extra-cheesy Mexican Quinoa Bake, which is not only delicious, but is dairy, gluten and soy-free! Use the Daiya Cutting Board Collection Shreds because they taste, melt and stretch just like dairy-based cheese, but they are made from 100% plant-based ingredients. And they’re available in Cheddar, Mozzarella and Pepperjack and are the perfect plant-based addition to your favorite cheesy comfort foods. This dish is going to be a hit with everyone at your party.
What about drinks and dessert?
Milo’s Tea Company offers a scrumptious line of teas that are all freshly brewed using simple, quality ingredients and are free of acids & preservatives. This holiday season try the delicious pumpkin bread, which gets its natural, sweet flavor from Milo’s Famous Sweet Tea. Make a Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese frosting and you will be a culinary hero!
