THUNDER BAY – FOOD NOW – Every holiday has a similar story: Even if the table looks perfect – for a time before your whole family sits down to dig in – there’s still a disaster of dishes lurking in the kitchen. Your perfect tablecloth will soon have gravy all over it and someone is likely going to spill some red wine. This is why this year, Chef Crawford has decided to embrace the ‘imperfect’ holiday.
By teaming up with Egg Farmers of Canada, celebrity Chef Lynn Crawford will share some of her traditional and simple holiday recipes, while drawing out the backstories that make the holidays so memorable. “Holidays are more than the perfect table setting and perfectly fluffy Yorkshire puddings. You wouldn’t believe the kitchen disasters I’ve had over the years, but they’re also my most memorable dinners,” says Chef Crawford.
Luckily, no matter what happens this holiday season, you can count on fresh, local and high quality eggs. They are among the most versatile ingredients and can be found in almost every holiday favourite. Under Canada’s system of supply management, the eggs you buy at the store are among the best in the world for quality and freshness, and are locally produced. That means every time you reach for eggs this season you’re supporting Canadian farmers.
Celebrate the comfort, tradition and down-home cooking that makes this time of year so special with these egg-inspired holiday recipes from Chef Crawford: savoury Yorkshire puddings, rib roast with horseradish egg-white salt crust and of course a sweet treat to top it all off, cranberry gingerbread cheesecake.
You are also invited to share your kitchen mishap stories with Egg farmers of Canada and Chef Lynn Crawford by using the hashtag #ScrambledPlan.
