Celebrate the Season! Bay Area Bites Christmas Holiday Feast

We love nothing more than putting together a festive holiday menu and this year's is tops! Kick off your feast with an autumn root vegetable salad with goat cheese crostini or a souffle-like butternut sformato with crunchy winter salad. The main attraction will make your guests swoon: a magnificent roast rack of lamb is accompanied by cheesy cauliflower gratin and individual spinach souffles. Top off your feast with the gooey sweetness of sticky toffee pudding.

Holiday Dinner Side Dish: Rich Spinach and Gruyere Soufflé
These light and fluffy yet rich and cheesy spinach soufflés are downright delicious! If you can whip an egg white, you have absolutely no reason to be intimidated by a soufflé. It’s truly easier that you might think, and boy is it impressive.
