Time to break out our favorite summer recipes and begin shopping for Memorial Day weekend groceries for the unofficial beginning of summer. Most likely the weather won’t feel like summer but we won’t care because we will have some great food to enjoy. And there must be guacamole, right? One meal of the weekend will be a slow roasted beef brisket, simple to prepare and provides a great atmosphere to relax with some beer and wine while it’s roasting. To roast it slow and low heat you want to order an untrimmed whole beef brisket from our meat counter, trimming the fat would cause you to lose the moist and tender texture of the beef. A simple dry rub of equal portions of Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper and a small amount of paprika over the entire brisket. We’re going to roast in a roasting box but the … Continue reading

The fresh wild Halibut filets in our stores right now are fabulous, Halibut is delicious whether baked, sautéed, grilled, or broiled and I can’t get enough of it! My personal favorite recipe is Halibut with Leeks and Spinach! The prep is easy and don’t count on having leftovers because there will be clean plates! One thing I do not enjoy when preparing fish is removing the skin from the fish and our staff at the chefs counter will remove the skin for you if you ask them. If you’re looking to spice things up try fresh Halibut in a fish taco and chunky guacamole of course! All of our recipes are on our website www.festivalfoods.net on our cooking page. Follow our Pinterest boards for  more ideas! Explore. Cook. Create.

A chilled seafood buffet is a delicious and colorful option for your holiday entertaining and much easier than attempting to keep food warm with open house entertaining, you can set the buffet and mingle with your guests. Be sure to keep all of your seafood iced and chilled on your buffet. Bubbles go well with seafood so think about serving a Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine along with your seafood spread. Lobster claws and King Crab legs served with a Seafood Mustard Sauce serve well as the main course, the lobster claws are pre-scored making them easy to open.

 It’s looking to be a pretty chilly Border Battle so we better break out the hot stuff with some food to warm you from the inside out. If you’re hosting a large crowd you could serve up some Border Battle Beef Brisket! The average size of the beef briskets right now are quite large so you’ll want to plan for a larger group but you can always freeze the leftovers.  We like to serve it on a toasted bun with some cole slaw for a sweet and savory combo. The Rudolph’s BarBQue Coleslaw Dressing is our favorite sweet coleslaw dressing.   Serving a Border Battle Burger Bar allows your guests pile on their favorite toppings, make them slider-size and serve with dollar buns. sliced jalapeños sliced banana peppers chopped onion sliced pickles sliced red pepper cheese slices ketchup mustard mayonnaise horseradish sauce barbecue sauce We’re convinced that  Chicken wings are a necessity … Continue reading

Nothing beats melty for a quick solution to dinner during these hectic weeks at the beginning of the school year. We decided to experiment with Gouda cheese for easy yet very tasty melty sandwiches. If you’re going to have a great sandwich you must use great bread, we chose a wonderful Boule made by Taste of Scandinavia for our sandwich bread. Simply toasting the bread didn’t seem like a good idea for a perfect melty sandwich so we settled on spreading the outside of the bread slices with Hellman’s Mayonnaise and cooked until a beautiful golden brown in a large non-stick frying pan or griddle. Our first melty sandwich effort was using Smoked Gouda on our golden crusted bread. We decided to shred the Smoked Gouda but slicing really gave us the same lovely melty result as shredding so save yourself having to clean the shredder. After cooking the exterior … Continue reading

Looking at our weather forecast this week, it seems like we need to serve up some comfort food. In our house that is usually soup or a hotdish! Our Hearty Italian Soup doesn’t take much time but it is rich in flavor, majority of the flavor comes from our fresh Italian sausage; made only at Festival Foods, we prefer the “hot” version of sausage for use in the soup, whatever you do don’t forget the mozzarella for the topping.  Serve the Hearty Italian soup by itself or with a small green salad and a baguette; either way it is an easy dinner to put on the table. If you are looking for a new family favorite Taco Soup may just be the one. Serving the Taco Soup with fresh cut Avocado and some fresh sliced Cilantro along with some crunchy chips makes this extra special. Here is a tasty meatless … Continue reading
