Holiday Appetizer Sampler for 6-8

Arrives after Halloween

Make this an easy and relaxing holiday! With all the stress of the past year, it’s time for you to put up your feet and relax instead of hustling and bustling with so many pots and pans. Warm up the creamy spinach and artichoke dip to serve with crostini, decorate the risotto cakes with parmesan and crispy sage leaves, the crab cakes can be served at room temperature or warmed up and we include a lovely remoulade sauce, and then everybody loves shrimp, poached in a white wine stock and served with cocktail sauce and lemon wedges!

Melbourne native Debbie Sharpe has spent years traveling the world catering for some of the music industry’s biggest stars, everyone from Paul McCartney and The Rolling Stones to Madonna and Beyonce. In 1990 she settled in Chicago and opened several critically acclaimed restaurants, and in 2004 she realized her dream of opening an Australian-style cafe, called The Goddess & Grocer. The Goddess, obviously, is Sharpe.
