The month of December is just flying by, we can't believe it!  Our stores are buzzing with orders, deliveries, and holiday joy.  We feel like elves in Santa's workshop!

Our favourite part of being a cookware shop, especially at the holidays, is hearing about all of the lovingly prepared dishes everyone is planning. We love being a part of facilitating your collective holiday joy.

Please tag us on Instagram, in photos of your beautiful drinks, dishes, and general holiday cheer @cookerystore  .  We look forward to celebrating with you. 

For all of you salt and butter lovers out there, we have three delicious savoury recipes from Chef Jessica for you this week.

Lemon & Herb Marinated Olives, Savoury Bacon Shortbread, and a vegetarian-friendly Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Shortbread. These delicious buttery savoury treats will be prefect as an appetizer for your intimate family gatherings, or as a holiday gift for friends and family you can't see personally this year.

And here at the shop, we have a beautiful array of items to help you make them! 

Thank you to Chef Jessica for sharing these three amazing treats with us!
