Appetizers
It's important to make an amazing first impression on your holiday guests. Pass these tiny treats around on small trays for the full gourmet experience.

  • Fresh Bread
    Who could resist? These look beautiful in a basket, and showcase the holiday flavor of pumpkin in an unexpected way.
  • Pumpkin Cloverleaf Rolls
  • The Main Event

    Serving turkey or ham would be way too predictable. You need a main dish that makes a statement. This tasty roast beef tenderloin is fit for the holiday table.
  • Beef Tenderloin with Roasted Shallots
  • Knock-Your-Socks-Off Sides

    Mashed Potatoes
    A side so impressive it could be served on its own. This Italian-inspired casserole combines mashed potatoes with mozzarella, prosciutto, and salami.

  • Vegetables
    Beautiful, simple, and quite tasty. You have to be confident to serve Brussel Sprouts as a holiday side, which is why you can do it.
  • Roasted Brussel Sprouts
  • The Grand Finale

    It's important to give your guests choices (and you're an overachiever). For a grand presentation, elevate your creations on cake stands and be sure they are properly admired before serving.
