Entertaining gurus say Fall and Winter parties tend be more decadent but that doesn't mean hosting one needs to be a lot of work." Prepare the menu well ahead of time and use easy to prepare-yet-elegant-dishes to serve your guests. This is a sophisticated way, to add a special taste to the food you are going to serve. Using Chambord, a sweet black raspberry spirit, in cocktails, cooking, or baking, is the perfect occasion to introduce others to its' flavor. It can make for a festive and memorable Thanksgiving Dinner; using it to create wonderful sauces and glazes, reinvigorating the more traditional fare. This palate-pleasing appetizer is wonderful!
