December 21, 2020 to January 3, 2021: What to Cook at Home for the Holidays

If you can’t get together with your loved ones during the 2020 holiday period, why not take the opportunity to cook what you’re really craving? From a New Year’s Eve drink to desserts and post-outdoor-activity snacks, we’ve thought of everything. Plus, some festive recipes (because it’s Christmas) and comforting recipes (because we need them) to enjoy during this well-deserved break. Happy holidays to all, and to all, many good culinary projects!

Chic canapés for small groups

This year is not about preparing a large meal worthy of the biggest table. So why not take the opportunity to cook a feast of canapés for your family bubble? The best flavours all in one bite—these are the little pleasures we have in 2020. Plus, this is the perfect time to practise your art of presentation at home. The new year will be your year to reimpress your guests (fingers crossed!).

Decadent desserts

The holiday season means extravagant desserts and the ultimate celebration for those with a sweet tooth! It’s the time of year to attempt your first chocolate cheesecake. You’ll also have fun cooking these other irresistible recipes. Of course, you may have leftovers, so give them out as gourmet gifts to your family and loved ones. A small gesture to the delight of all!

Festive drinks

Alcoholic, non-alcoholic, coffee, sweet; here are stylish and festive drinks for every taste and fancy! Finally, there’s enough time to relax and make some serious happy hour cocktails. And for the kids? Treat them to hot chocolate for those pajama days spent watching your favourite holiday TV shows and movies! Cheers!

Snacks for outdoor activities

The holidays are a good time to move and to breathe in the fresh air! Skiing, hiking, snowshoeing—let’s go! Alone or with family, ’tis the season for refueling while enjoying the snowy, magical outdoors. Here are some nutritious snack ideas that will keep you on your feet throughout an active day!

Treat yourself!

Yes, 2020 has been a very different year. One thing is for sure: Winter is now upon us and we all want comfort and simplicity in our lives. With this in mind, we encourage you to order takeout from your favourite restaurants in order to support them during this crisis. Lunch or a good bottle of wine makes all the difference and gives you a break during the holidays! And if you fancy something sweet prepared with love by Café RICARDO, visit our website to discover our generous specials on cakes. You can also find our new products in Quebec grocery stores to make your daily life easier, just in time for the holidays. More than a few interesting options to treat yourself!
