Yuletide Feasting

Whether you are celebrating solo, as a duo or hosting a gathering for a large group of friends and/or family this time of year is truly something to celebrate. We celebrate the return of the light, the coming warmth (for many), the fertile time of year. There are many times throughout the Yuletide season in which to celebrate. Oftentimes our quiet supper on the Solstice Eve includes sausage rolls, soup and hot drinks finished off with a warm, comforting fruit dessert. When the family gathers we typically have buffets featuring dishes of our ancestries, foods abundant during this time of year (eating seasonally!), foods warming, spicy and nourishing to see us through the winter ahead.

As this time year is focused on giving, making large quantities to deliver to your local soup kitchen and food pantry for those in need is very welcomed. Contact local kitchens to see what you can do.
