Dutch Country Kitchen Season Holiday Entertaining Special

Dutch Country Kitchen Holiday Entertaining Special

Dutch Country Kitchen Season 2

We are excited to be able to bring you Dutch Country Kitchen Holiday Entertaining Special, Season 2 and just in time for the holidays! Host, Diana Upton-Hill, and my wife, Erica, have had so much fun working on this new season full of delicious homemade recipes from our friends and family. We are especially happy to bring you our Holiday Entertaining Special featuring special guest Jill Kerns from Piper’s Candy out of Chariton, Iowa.

In this episode, we highlight some great ideas for holiday entertaining for friends and family, big or small. Food and family always seem to go together, don’t they? Especially during the holidays! When we sat down and thought about what recipes to showcase for season 2, we knew we had to do a Holiday or Christmas special since it is our favorite time of year. These are simple yet satisfying dishes anyone can make and everyone will enjoy!

Something Spiced, Savory, and Sweet!

Our first recipe to kick off the festivities is Diana’s Spiced Cider Drink. This is a special recipe handed down to Diana. It was so delicious even our video crew couldn’t stop drinking it! Did I mention only 4 ingredients go into this holiday treat?

What is holiday entertaining without a platter? I don’t think we have ever not had one at our house for Christmas. This “savory and a little sweet” platter has something for everyone: Winesburg Meats Grand Champion Summer Sausage, cheese curds, fruit, Dutch Country Cucumber Dill dip, and Wheat Crackers! Our girls can’t get enough of local Milton Creamery cheese curds, so these are always included in our platters when Erica thoughtfully puts one together. If you stop down at one of our store locations, Bloomfield or Hannibal, you can always sample the Jake & Amos Sweet & Hot Pepper Relish dip. Once you do, I think you will know why it has become one of our favorites too.

We are very humbled to have Jill from Piper’s Candy join us as a special guest and share some of her tips and tricks on dipping caramels and pretzels during the holidays! We love Jill - she also visits our stores to offer chocolate demonstrations from time-to-time - like her most recent one to celebrate the season at our Bloomfield location on December 5th. If you haven't tried her candy yet, we highly recommend you do! You can grab a box of her delectable hand-dipped chocolates here on our website and have them delivered right to your door! You can even choose from .5lb to 5lb options.
