A couple of weeks ago, I hosted a festive cooking soiree in Boston in partnership with Holland House Cooking Wine in preparation for the holiday season. We learned so much about Holland House Cooking Wines and their use in different recipes. Holland House is a great way to add in bold flavor with slow cooker dishes, soups, and cold-weather favorites this holiday season. The flavors hold up in high heat! They are perfect to brighten up holiday side dishes! We got to make and taste three dishes and we had so much fun! I hosted a Facebook Live with Holland House and worked with fellow bloggers to cook some delicious Holiday dishes that are perfect for the season!
So, what can you make with cooking wine?
First, we made Marsala Whipped Sweet Potatoes which were super tasty and so creamy. Sweet potatoes are a great side dish at any Holiday table. Creamy sweet potatoes mixed with Marsala - which imparts sweet wine flavor with hints of hazelnut - was definitely one of my favorites!
We also got to make a gorgeous Sherry Triple Berry Cranberry Sauce which was fantastic! This cranberry sauce was nothing like I had before with the addition of raspberries and blueberries. A generous splash of Holland House Sherry Cooking Wine gives a mild sherry flavor with hints of caramel which is perfect as it balances the sweetness with nutty flavor.
And last, but definitely not least, we got to try some amazing Marsala and Dark Chocolate Malted Milk Brownies which were absolutely delicious. Fudgy and nicely sweet brownies with a hint of marsala (which elevated the flavors) were a perfect ending to our fun day!
