Holiday Spirit

We’re only a couple weeks away from Christmas and we wanted to start spreading holiday cheer!
Here are some goods and gifts to get you into the holiday spirit and perhaps spark ideas to start to your holiday shopping:


Set For The Holidays With Anna Olson 

Chef Anna Olson’s recent visit to Upper Canada inspired us to cook new holiday dishes this season. Her new book, ‘Set For The Holidays‘ is a collection of savoury and sweet recipes that are easy for you to re-create at home. She also includes tips on menu planning, prep notes and supportive advice for those who find holiday cooking and hosting stressful.

You can find hard copies of the book at Coles – we think it’s a perfect gift or read for those who love to be inspired!



Fruit Of The Land Goodies

The secret ingredient to your holiday dishes might be Fruit Of The Land‘s Cranberry Maple Syrup! This pure organic cranberry syrup adds a hint of sweet tangy flavour, complements cranberry sauce/any side dishes to your main course and it’s even vegan friendly!

You can see Fruit Of The Land’s Instant Pot Cranberry Maple Syrup recipe here to see how it comes together.
What is your secret ingredient for the holiday season?
