La Brea Bakery’s Guide to Cooking for the Holidays

Food is the glue that binds: friends, family, tradition, holidays… This time of year is especially full of reasons to gather and break bread.  So it’s safe to say we all have a holiday dish or two that we look forward to each year.  If you’re looking for inspiration for your next gathering, whether as a guest or as the host(ess) with the most(ess), feast your eyes on a handful of our favorites:

  1. Pulled Chicken Salad with Baby Spinach, Apple, Goat Cheese and Warm Bacon Vinaigrette: Appetizers are a must; and when it includes bacon? Even better.
  2. Oven Roasted Seasonal Vegetable Bruschetta: We are all about utilizing seasonal ingredients when we can. Couple that with easy hand-held apps and we’re in our host(ess) happy place.
  3. Holiday Stuffing Crusted Fried Chicken: All the flavors of the holidays any main course would dream of.
  4. Cranberry White Chocolate Bread Pudding: Desserts are a critical part of a holiday feast, and we wouldn’t be La Brea Bakery if our favorite holiday dessert didn’t include fresh artisan bread.
