Cooking your Roasts!

 Hello Everyone!

If you are wondering about how to cook your holiday roast, and maybe you have called our office to find that we are home enjoying the company of our is the knowledge you seek! Or at least our best attempt without the help of psychic capabilities.

If you have a Hazelnut En Croute Roast: First look to the box, it is very explicit in its instructions. If you have tossed the box when you thawed the roast, and are now left thinking..."what did that say?" Here is the jist:

To serve simply thaw at room temperature for 4 hours or overnight in the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 425, unwrap roast and place on a sheet pan in oven. Bake until golden brown, about 45 mins. Let cool for 10 minutes and cut into slices.

For a special presentation, roast a variety of root vegetables; potatoes, turnips, parsnips, onions, & garlic cloves for a side. Place the cut vegetables and some herb sprigs, like fresh thyme & rosemary, in a large baking dish. Season well with salt and black pepper, drizzle generously with olive oil, and toss with your hands to coat them evenly.
Put the baking dish in the preheated oven and cook, stirring the vegetables occasionally, until they are tender and golden brown, about 45 minutes. Serve the vegetables from their baking dish or transfer them to a platter to accompany our Hazelnut Cranberry Roast.

If you are cooking the Celebration Roast, you will find some instructions on our website here.

The hazelnut log encroute is such a great product, but I was so so sad that it was only sold in the stores (New Seasons) for Thanksgiving and not for Christmas. I went EVERYWHERE in Portland, OR. I would literally have bought 3 or more to save had I known it would not be for both holidays. On Thanksgiving, I fed it to a bunch of meat eaters alongside a turkey and they all said it was the best thing on the table of like 9 things (after initially making fun of it). It was. I can't believe I have to wait a whole year to have it again. Me sad.
