Or, enjoy at home in front of a warm crackling fire! • Southbrook Cabernet Sauvignon VQA Certified Organic & Biodynamic • Monforte Dairy Brin D’amour (aged goat’s milk cheese, herb d'provence) • Evelyn’s Currant in the Rye Crackers From the Niagara region we have Southbrook’s Southbrook Cabernet Sauvignon is ecofriendly and scored 88 points from the judging panel at Biovino 2010. Its colour is deep red with purple glints. Nose of black currents and earth, with a hint of smokey complexity. A fine balance followed by a fruity finish and soft tannins. It pairs perfectly with this Monforte Dairy semi-soft aged goat cheese, crusted in rosemary. Rich and creamy, with a bite, this Stratford-made artisanal cheese is in deed a "piece of love" this holiday season. Evelyn’s Crackers, made with spelt, rye, dried currants, caraway, and anise, compliment both wine and cheese. Made from 100% organic local grains and handcrafted in Toronto. Add-On Package 2: Christmas Morning ($39.99) In the tradition of Christmas, we are treating you to one non-local item in this holiday package. Fill your stockings with these juicy organic oranges from California and enjoy them Christmas morning! • Valencia Oranges (4 ct) • Grainstorm Ancient Grain Pancake Mix (500g) • Local, free range eggs (1/2 dozen) • Maple syrup • Alternative Grounds coffee (1lb) What could be better than hot pancakes, maple syrup, and a cup of coffee to start your holiday? Made from freshly ground local, organic spelt, kamut, and oats, Grainstorm Ancient Grain Pancakes might be the best you ever have. They’re rich grainy flavours and light texture will surprise you – these aren’t your typical healthy pancakes! Douse them in organic Ontario Maple Syrup and serve with a piping hot cup of Alternative Grounds coffee. Christmas morning never tasted so good. Add-On Package 3: The Latke Switch Up ($28.99) A slight departure from traditional potatoes and apple sauce, this Chunukah package is 100% local and 100% sure to please. Includes a recipe card! • Ontario’s Own Organic Pear Pure (500ml) • Monforte Dairy Belle (fresh sheep’s milk cheese) • Sweet potatoes (2.5lb) • Onions (1lb) • Local, free range eggs (1/2 dozen) • ChocoSol Hemp Gold Chocolate Bar Switch things up this Chanukah! With local, organic sweet potatoes, onions, and eggs, all you have to do is follow the recipe card for a quick and easy holiday dinner! Slightly healthier, more colourful, and a little sweeter than typical potato pancakes these sweet potato latkes match perfectly with Ontario’s Own Organic Pear Pure. Made from organic, Ontario-grown pears from Filsinger’s Organic Orchard in Bruce Grey County, this unsweetened puree is as delicious on latkes as it is on a roast or mixed into yogurt for a healthy snack. If you’re more of a sour cream fan, then you’ll love Monforte Dairy Belle, a fresh sheep’s milk cheese with all the tang of sour cream and the richness of cream cheese. Hand-made in Stratford, Monforte Dairy Belle is a definite upgrade for your latkes. For dessert, it’s not Chunukah Gelt, but it is delicious! ChocoSol’s Hemp Gold combines maple butter, hemp seeds, and sea salt for a delightful salty-sweet treat. These Toronto made chocolates are fairtrade, stone-ground, and pedal powered.
