Our Premium Quality Double Smoked Bone-In Ham has been a holiday tradition for many families. Our ham is twice smoked over hard wood, it is fully cooked so 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.

If you prefer a glaze on your holiday ham this is a fabulous recipe for Cranberry Maple Glazed Ham. 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. Regardless of the recipe you choose for your ham, the perfect accompaniment is our Cheesy Potatoes, all you need to do is pop them in the oven!

Leftover ham from your dinner may be used for so many great recipes; our new favorite panini is with Ham and Camembert,  tasty crowd-pleasing sandwiches, this fabulous carbonara or this yummy appetizer!The secret of perfect hard-boiled eggs – buy 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 your time is limited.

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, a made from scratch southern classic with fresh bananas, crushed pineapple, chopped pecans,  and just the right amount of cinnamon sugar with a touch of flaked coconut, finished with real cream cheese icing – a masterpiece!


As far as those Easter eggs – save yourself some time and pick up the hard-boiled eggs from our Deli, then all you have to do is color them. Easier yet, pick up the hard-boiled eggs already colored!
