Deck the Gingerbread House

Deck the Gingerbread House

Holiday decorations are not just made of garland and trees, lights and decorative ornaments; they may also include edible holiday décor. One holiday décor piece that has been made since the 16th century in Germany is the gingerbread house.  Gingerbread houses gained popularity when the Brothers Grimm wrote the story of Hansel and Gretel. If you remember, in this story the main characters stumble upon a house deep in the forest made entirely of treats. The world record holding gingerbread house was created at Traditions Golf Club in Bryan, TX. The house, spanning nearly 40,000 cubic feet, was erected much like a traditional house. It even required a building permit. 4,000 gingerbread bricks were used during its construction. To put that in perspective, a recipe for a house this size would include 1,800 pounds of butter and 1,080 ounces of ground ginger. The previous record holder was the Mall of America in 2006.

Stuffed at Thanksgiving

Stuffed at Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is not only a time to unite families; it is also a time to unite cuisine from across America. Traditional Thanksgiving meals generally include one main denominator… the beautiful bird itself! The preparation and seasoning of the bird may vary depending on geographic region as well as the sides and desserts being served.

Gourds Galore

Gourds Galore

Fall is the perfect time to harvest all that Mother Nature has blessed with bright sunny days all summer long. Walk up and down the farmer’s market or grocery aisles and see the wonderful colors of fall produce overfill the stands. The colors of the produce match the brilliant colors of the fall leaves. Bring some of the brightness of the outdoors indoors to the kitchen by selecting gourds and squashes to cook into delightful dishes. From snacks to dinner and even dessert, gourds are wonderful to create some amazing recipes.

Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight

Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight

Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight is celebrated September 6-21 and is a national celebration of all things culinary from across Scotland. The event aims to raise awareness about the quality of local produce in Scotland, and encourage both consumers and retailers to make the best use of all the ingredients available to them from their own region. Farmers’ markets play a big role in the Scottish Food Fortnight and they are used as a platform to discuss the importance and benefits of consuming local produce, especially the implicit health benefits.
