At this time of the year the stores are brimming over with everything you need for holiday entertaining. While we are on tour we are working on many new items for this holiday and some regular items to. So now I want to introduce everyone to a few items to consider when planning a holiday menu.
Some thing new to most stores meat departments this year is the turduchen, its a 3 in one - poultry item - a chicken stuffed in a ducked stuffed inside a turkey! Other items that meat items that are being used sre the Goose, Capon, and a Crown Roast to go along with some of your other holiday favorites. Now if your planning on prepareing anyone of these meat products and your not sure how you can just go to your meat department associates for help or you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another item we are using on the cooking tour is the Panettone...if you haven't already tried item, you're in for a welcome surprise... Enjoyed throughout the hloiday season the Panettone is a traditional Italian bread that originated in Milan durind the 15th century. Its really great with butter and you can also buy it with cranberries and raisins baked in....you should try it lightly toasted for breakfast or you can prepare it as a french toast for a nice holiday brunch.
Then we go to a old staple...Pasteurized Eggs.....If you have a favorite recipe for homemade eggnog or if you just can't stop yourself from eating raw cookie dough, then consider trying pasteurized shell eggs in your holiday recipes. Pasteurization uses heat heat to kill the salmonella bacteria and eliminates the risk of food borne illness associated with eating raw or undercooked eggs. Pasteurized eggs looks, cook and taste just like other shell eggs and let you enjoy eggs over easy or sunny - side up, raw in sauces and Caesar salads, lightly cooked in custards and desserts.... you can look for all of these items in you local food store ....and I hope you enjoy your holiday!
