Gourmet Ranch holidayA fabulous time of corporate parties, and other gatherings filling dining rooms around the country. And let’s not forget catering too! You’ll serve up more meatballs and punch then you care to think!

So, what IS on your holiday menu this year? Anything new? Anything different? Jake’s offers many items perfect for all your menu needs. Here are just a few of our favorites…

Trentino, local creators of fabulous gelato and sorbet, introduced three new flavors for the season including Pumpkin, Peppermint, and our favorite, Egg Nog—which really doesn’t taste like the polarizing holiday cream—it actually tastes better! Try it for yourself! Trentino also makes special creations and flavors upon request. What a great way to serve up a signature dessert as unique as you?

Food bars seem to be popping up everywhere! From bloody marys to tacos, there’s just something fun about putting on that imaginary chef’s hat and creating your own dish.  But don’t stop there. Why not dessert? What about cheese?

Lactalis American Group is the North American division of the world’s largest dairy corporation and offers some of the most popular cheese brands: Président, Sorrento, Precious, rondelé, and Galbani. Their wide selection of cheeses can help you put together a cheese display even Mickey Mouse would envy.

What about olives? Increasingly popular at retail outlets with self-serve bars as far as the eye can see, olives are also standard fare for holiday parties. We carry a wide selection of these morsels from Castella Imports. Castella is one of the largest importers and manufacturers of specialty foods in the United States. Its extensive product line includes antipasto, cheeses, olives, oils and spices, to name a few.

Did somebody say hors d’oeuvres? (They had to; who can actually spell it?) Holiday Foods offers a wide variety of bite-size appetizers and desserts to compliment all types of parties, themes and cuisines.

Enough about all this, let’s get to the meat of the matter! Jake’s very own custom butcher shop, Gourmet Ranch, offers all kinds of custom-cut steaks, poultry, pork and veal. And did we mention wild game? We’ve got more game than the Texans! But seriously, the list is extensive and offers a perfect unique entrée for a holiday feature. Of course, for us, nothing says Happy Holidays like a bone-in cowboy ribeye or cocktail lamb chops!

For those of you looking for the traditional holiday bird, we have those too. From whole turkeys to french-cut turkey breasts, Jake’s carries a complete line of turkey products. And let’s not forget the ham too!

We could go on and on, but the best way to find out about all the unique products we sell is to ask your Jake’s sales representative.

Have a flavorful day!
