Header - Home For The Holidays

Home for the Holidays - a special time where we share a meal with friends and family. For many, it's a custom, a family tradition. A great feast is often prepared - a labor of love, borne of tradition that often includes secret family recipes. It's a lot of work, and we tip our toque to those daring to plan and do much of the cooking. We've been there; we know it can be a bit frenzied at times. So much to do, so little time; perhaps a bit of well intentioned unsolicited advice; there just aren't enough burners on the stovetop.  We can't help with the stove, but we can help you delight your guests and enhance your joy of cooking for them. How about trying Brad"s turkey and brine recipe -  virtually guaranteed to result in a moist, beautiful, and delicious bird. Check out some MTG family gravy favorites and some of our recipes for side dishes.  This year, maybe you plan to prepare a gourmet restaurant meal for the holidays featuring lamb, veal, or beef and complemented with an elegant sauce.  See what we have in store for you by visiting our pantry and exploring our Family Recipes, or buy some sauce.  From the MTG family to your family - Happy holidays.
