  • Holiday Fare

    Holiday Fare

    By John R. Gonzales

    Chef John Gonzales serves up fun fare for the holidays. Featuring more than sixty genuinely American recipes, Holiday Fare combines the history and local flavors of Colonial Williamsburg's famed Christmastide festivities to create a holiday culinary guide. Gonzales gathers together the vast array of ingredients special to the tidewater region—from crabmeat to Surry sausage—as the basis for his many tasty dishes inspired by early American cooking.

    Holiday Fare offers favorites such as Peanut Soup with Cranberry Sauce and Lardoons, Roasted Brined Turkey with Pan-Drop Gravy, Black-Eyed Peas with Grilled Red Onion Pickle, and Buttery Rum Pumpkin Pie.

    Colonial Williamsburg photographer Tom Green's stunning images of the mouthwatering recipes is a feast for the eyes. The easy-to-read ingredient lists and clear step-by-step instructions will make this cookbook an asset in every holiday kitchen.
