Our Holiday Recipes

Christmas is peeking out around the corner and we're pretty pumped at The Local Kitchen. Not only are we lucky enough to be hosting 19 private parties in November and December, it's almost our one year anniversary of opening! Watch for next month's post where we talk about our resolutions for the kitchen for 2018 and a few things we've learned in the last year.

With such a busy season at the kitchen it hasn't left much extra time for personal christmas traditions this year. And even if you're not hosting Christmas dinner at your house there's still a lot of food to prepare during the holidays. Let's face it, once your an adult, eating is pretty much the best part of Christmas right? Luckily we have a few go to recipes that we all like to use around this time of year and we're put them together to share with you! 

Wishing you all a happy and relaxing time with your family and friends this Christmas season...while eating your weight in holiday treats :) 

Happy Holidays from us at The Local Kitchen! 


1. Holiday Party Dish (Julie)

Pomegranate-and-Cranberry-Bruschetta-2.png

I love this Cranberry & Pomegranate Bruchetta recipe by Tabler Party of Two because it's simple, it's served cold so you don't have to worry about making it while you're trying to get ready to go out or warming it at the party, the flavours are light and unexpected, and you can use any leftover chutney for on the turkey!

2. Baking Exchange (Caitlin)

A baking exchange is a fun way to get your holiday baking done. Invite a few friends to join in, each bake a few dozen of a christmas treat they enjoy and then exchange until all the participants have a few of each kind. If you're looking for a recipe try this one Caitlin recommends by Six Sisters Stuff for Eggnog Truffles!
