One of my favorite holiday traditions as a child was coloring the Easter eggs, as an adult one of my least favorite traditions was hard-boiling the eggs so the eggs could be dyed! Many years ago I discovered the secret of perfect hard-boiled eggs – I purchase them from the Deli at Festival. I prefer to purchase the eggs and dye them at home but the Deli team also prepares dyed eggs if that is your choice.

Our Premium Quality Double Smoked Bone-In Ham is a holiday tradition for many families. Our ham is fully cooked; twice smoked over hard wood you may simply bake covered with foil or lid at 325 degrees for approximately 15 minutes per pound to an internal temperature of 140 degrees. This video featuring Festival team members Ray and Jason explains the advantages of purchasing and serving a premium quality ham. Leftover ham from your dinner may be used for these tasty crowd-pleasing sandwiches, this fabulous carbonara or this yummy appetizer!

If you prefer a simple glaze on your holiday ham this recipe has been a hit for years. I recently saw this recipe in Bon Appétit magazine for Easter Ham with Golden Breadcrumbs and Madeira Sauce and it sounds delicious so I plan to prepare this for our holiday dinner.

Another elegant and easy meal that our family enjoys for the holiday is a bone-in Rib-Eye Roast (Prime Rib) served with Béarnaise sauce. Our cutting edge butchers hand cut, trim and tie these roasts like pieces of art for your table! Here is a video explaining how to prepare the prime rib and here is the link to the Perfect Prime Rib recipe.

The kids at your table will love our Bunny Cake (order while supplies last) and we are sure the rest of your guests will enjoy Taste of Scandinavia’s Hummingbird Cake.

We didn’t forget our suggestions for the rest of the week’s meals, here is our menu for the week with a shopping list for your holiday meal that we hope you will find helpful! Pick up one of our gorgeous potted orchids when you’re shopping – you deserve it.
