The Glitz in putting on the Ritz

Dust off your china, iron the tablecloths, and polish up the silverware. The holidays are upon us and it’s finally time to get fancy! And where else can you find some of the specialty items that’ll really make your holiday dinner shine?

To start, crank up the music and start decorating while sipping Hartzler’s Egg Nog. It’s so rich and decadent, your waistline will be glad it’s only around for a brief time! I like mine shaken with a splash of Brandy and some grated fresh nutmeg on top!

Next comes our holiday fruit baskets, chestnuts, candied fruits, nuts, and Comice pears (aka, the Holiday Pear). They sure do make nice gifts, but keep these tasty treats at home, too, to pull out for unexpected guests. Speaking of guests, we have the perfect way to get the party started: fresh oysters! We’ll shuck icy cold oysters for you while you finish the rest of your shopping and will package them up perfectly to take home. They are simply perfect with a glass of Champagne. I also like to greet my guests with a “help yourself” cheese selection that’s adorned with apples, Comice Pears, and nuts. Peruse The DLM Cheese Shop for the best assortment of pâtés, terrine, and cheese from around the world. Spend time talking with our cheesemongers who can help you create a beautiful cheese selection for a one-of-a-kind platter. Be sure to grab Colston Bassett Stilton, one of my favorites for the holiday.

Now, for the main entrée. Come to our Meat department to find the highest quality DLM Natural Beef Prime Rib Roast available anywhere. It truly is the ultimate holiday centerpiece! Dress it with our DLM Grilling & Seasoning Rub—it’s simply amazing! Don’t forget that we have Heavenly Ham®, too!

Last but certainly not least—dessert! Besides our homemade pies, like Grandma Tobias Pumpkin and Pecan Pies, our Bakeries have gorgeous pastries and specialty items here for a limited time, like Stollen from our friends at Servatii and Bûche de Noël (a French-style chocolate mousse and raspberry jam cake).

We make it our mission to put the WOW into the holidays with all of the delicious foods that we bring together just for you. We hope you let us help you put the glitz in putting on the ritz at your house!
