#2 – Simplified menu, ideal for the chalet
Plan to take advantage of the seasonal colours and the long weekend to get re-energized at the chalet with friends? With this convivial meal full of Thanksgiving spirit, you can still entertain guests without abandoning the idea of enjoying the long weekend outdoors under the autumn sun.
Very easy to prepare, our Fall Chalet cocktail deserves its name, with flavours of cranberry, apple and cinnamon. It’s the ideal aperitif for sipping at the end of the day while admiring the blaze of fall colours from the deck!
To satisfy appetites after an afternoon spent outdoors, nothing is better than a Baguette with Quebec Cheese and Onion Confit. You can even make the onion confit in advance to simplify things even further—all that remains is to put everything together and put it in the oven!
Entertaining in style for Thanksgiving doesn’t have to be complicated! With this recipe for Quebec Cheese and Ice Cider Fondue, featuring two local cheeses, you’ll be both chic and gracious without having to spend your afternoon slaving over a hot stove!
If, however, you enjoy cooking in good company over a glass or two, you could accompany the fondue with this Butternut Squash Risotto, a perfect marriage of flavours!
Usually there is neither the time nor the equipment available for making a traditional Thanksgiving pie at the chalet. If this is the case, this recipe for Baked Apples with Vanilla Ice Cream and Cider Coulis will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth. Finish off the evening sitting around the fire and sipping an Orchard Chai.
