The days are getting shorter, leaves are beginning to fall and sweater weather signals that the holidays are coming! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the changing of the seasons and all the celebrations that go with it. Give me all the holiday magic! Sprinkle that everywhere!
Fall is all about halloween, pumpkins and ghosts! We have our share of ghosts here at the cafe and I am curious to see if they will get into the holiday spirit and create more of a ruckus than they usually do! As we move into October, our holiday baklava is a fun dark flavor: Black Baklava. Using Uinta Baba Black Beer as our syrup base, we blend dark Belgian chocolate and walnuts to create a very intriguing flavor that totally encapsulates the spooky holiday!
Pumpkin spice is on everyones mind and that definitely flows over into our Börek! A little spiced pumpkin with Swiss chard, walnuts, pinch of cinnamon and a dash of Isot, or roasted paprika is going to be super fun! Keep your eyes peeled for when that Börek comes out to play!
November pulls in Thanksgiving and we have so so much to be grateful for as we enter into our first holiday season. Recreating a thanksgiving feast between the baklava and börek is going to be fun as we serve up Apple Pie baklava, regular or boozy bourbon caramel! Our börek will follow that theme as we fill our spirals with roast turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and sprinkling of chopped pecans.
As the Christmas trees go up and the caroling begins, holiday parties and secret Santas are everywhere! Let us help you with that ! Our holiday baklava is a guaranteed hit with Candy Cane, Dark Belgian Chocolate and Walnut! All sorts of boxes just perfect for teacher and neighbor gifts or just for yourself (we won’t tell!)
Our December börek will be all colorful and take it all the magic with roasted Brussel sprouts, brie and cranberries! This will be my favorite for sure because I want to eat all the cheese around the holidays and I have never met a brie I didn’t like!
We have lots planned for the next few months so keep in touch for all your holiday magic! We would love to be part of it!
