‘Tis the season for family and friends to gather around and celebrate the most magical time of year—allow us to lending a helping hand with any soirée you have planned with a bevy of housemade accoutrements ranging from buttery galette dough and Chanterelle duxelles to chicken liver pâté and both candied cranberries and sweet-tart cranberry syrup. Also included in this holiday lineup: Smoked blue cheese, pear vinaigrette and such produce as celery root, Tokyo turnips and fennel. Happy holidays from our family to yours!
