Caviar Creations: A Taste of Tradition and Elegance

When we think of Thanksgiving, visions of turkey and trimmings often dominate our culinary thoughts. But this year, why not add a touch of elegance to your feast with caviar? Emily Johnson, a renowned chef and a member of the Culinary Excellence Society, shares her cherished family recipe, Johnson's Caviar, which has been passed down through generations. It's a delightful blend of tradition and sophistication, making it the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving spread.


Emily's choice of paddlefish roe from our sturgeon caviar, showcases her commitment to local organic ingredients. The infusion of caviar in your Thanksgiving menu is not only a nod to tradition but also a luxurious and delightful surprise for your guests. Serve it with toast points or blinis for an exquisite appetizer that will have everyone talking.

Mushroom Magic: A Thanksgiving Side Like No Other

While the turkey might be the star of the show, the supporting cast can steal the limelight too. Pacific Wild Picks offers an array of wild mushrooms that can elevate your Thanksgiving meal to a new level. Consider sautéing chanterelles or hedgehogs in butter and fresh herbs to create a side dish that complements your bird beautifully. These wild mushrooms add a unique, earthy depth to your Thanksgiving spread, making every bite a memorable one.

Berries for Dessert: Haskap and Huckleberries

Thanksgiving isn't complete without a sweet finish, and what better way to do it than with a dessert featuring the incredible flavors of the Pacific? Haskap berries and Huckleberries bring a delightful burst of color and taste to your table. Whether you're making pies, tarts, or a simple compote to drizzle over vanilla ice cream, these berries offer a distinct Pacific twist to your traditional desserts. Their vibrant flavors will leave your guests longing for more.

Truffle Pasta: A Luxurious Thanksgiving Main Course
