    Day 9: The Flavors of Christmas.. Eggnog

    Eggnog! I purchase the liquid gold from the only dairy left in Los Angeles. At one point LA has 22 dairies with cows.. Now only one is left with the cows outside of the city limits. Today I conducted my Holiday Flower Market Tour from San Diego.. One of our stops we savored the eggnog! Its a difficult product to get outside of the LA area.. But here is the information.. Broguiere Dairy in Montebello. 323-726-0524. Its teh fourth generation French family that produces many milk products.


    Todays recipes are eggnog cookies and eggnog cheesecake.  Enjoy!

    Check to see my Facebook page at George Geary Culinary Tours and Classes.. I just posted pictures from today's Holiday Flower Market Tour. 


    Day 7: The Flavors of Christmas... Butter


    Yes... a flavor! I have created a Hot Butter Rum Drink and also a French Butter Cookie that is so light! Enjoy! I think you will love these recipes. 

    Salt vs Unsalted butter. First I kid and say I used unsalted because I am worried about your health. Really do you know how much salt is in butter? I don't either.. So I use unsalted so I can use the amount of salt I feel is best. Also, salted butter last longer so grocery stores can keep it on the shelve longer.

    Day 6: The Flavors of Christmas…. Vanilla!


    Only second in line to Chocolate.. (Notice how this entire 12 days started with Chocolate?). I have enclosed a simple custard recipe. Also, I want everyone to make their own vanilla extract. I have attached a few pages on facts of this only edible orchid plant and some stories of the vanilla regions I have been fortunate to tour and visit.

    Also, if you make your own vanilla, you need the perfect bottles! I have found them and below is the link for those. And a great price! 

    Tomorrows flavor is...Butter! And I just purchased 5 pounds of european butter today!

    Day 4: The Flavors of Christmas… Peppermint

    Peppermint.. The flavor alone reminds you of Christmas.. The candy cane would not be any other flavor! It has to be peppermint.. I see some are on the shelves this season are hot sauce flavored.. Not for me!

    Here are two recipes for today.

    Also here is a link for paper straws.. The Old Fashion feel of the paper straw will take you back to a simpler time.
