Thanksgiving is next week! While my mom is taking most of the menu heavy lifting, I will be bringing a side dish & appetizers. During this festive winter season, I am always appreciative of Dean & DeLuca because they add a gourmet twist that helps take your meal or party to the next level. The holidays are the perfect time to get a little fancy and add some gourmet flavor! You may remember Dean & DeLuca from my homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte post. They make a delicious, artisianal Pumpkin Spice syrup. This year when tasked with bringing a side dish & appetizer, I turned to Dean & DeLuca’s extensive list of gourmet items. I debated heavily over a hot chocolate bar with individual chocolate sticks, a caramel apple decorating station, and a tempting meat & cheese platter with figs & honey. Ultimately I decided to stay true to my Southern roots and go with a Biscuit Bar! I will be keeping my eye out for those other items for my next winter celebration though!
Dean & DeLuca has a delicious Trio of Harvest Fruit Butters. What better way to offer your friends and family a fun, “create your own” appetizer station than with a sampling of delicious spreads on hot, fresh biscuits? In the pack you get apple butter (already a favorite of mine, as they were the favors at our wedding), pumpkin butter (so festive!), and a pear butter (HUGE hit with my husband).
The key to having a successful biscuit bar is relies heavily on having fluffy, flavorful biscuits. You can be ambitious and make your own from scratch OR you can order these Herb Parmesan Biscuits online & have them the next day! Simply pop them in the oven for 35 minutes & bring them out to the awe of your guests. So flaky & fluffy & flavorful! They also have Sweet Potato Biscuits and Cream Cheese Biscuits.
I have been lucky enough to visit the Dean & DeLuca store in Napa. Its a gourmet chef in the making’s dream place. They have a ton of high end products that make it really easy to elevate your dishes to the next level so I jumped at the opportunity to work with them on this post. Selecting from their products makes me feel like a kid in a candy shop. From the comfort of your own home you can get specialty food items from all over the US delivered right to you. The best part is that you can spend more time making your home & party look festive because you can count on Dean & DeLuca’s items to be gourmet & easy to do. Seriously, I put the frozen biscuits in the oven, popped them out and they were all ready in their picture perfect flakiness!
