Last week I indulged in a wonderful brunch that featured many new products from the PC Insiders Collection, served at a long table at L’Abattoir by their chefs team. For the holiday season, President’s Choice® brand, launches more than 70 new products.
This was a great way to discover and taste many of these new products which you may want to incorporate into your holiday celebrations at home.
To start we were served a selection of Charcuterie, cheeses and spreads.
As we were seated it was on to multiple courses in our holiday brunch.
Yummy Black Forest Stuffed French Toast to start
Mixed Mushroom and Comté Strata
Hasselback Potatoes stuffed with cheddar and bacon
Greek yogurt with coconut, chocolate chips and mint, delicious
Vanilla bean Mascarpone Cheesecake with Presidents Choice black label raspberry syrup, whipped cream and fresh fruit
The new and innovative products launching for the holiday season, are made up of four distinct occasions to match: Dine, Brunch, Mingle and Gift.
The Collection Occasions
The “Dine” occasion includes updated holiday classics with a twist like Hasselback Potatoes Stuffed with Cheddar and Bacon made with PC® Strawberry Blonde Potatoes. With mouth-watering innovations like PC® Mascarpone Vanilla Bean Cheesecake or the delightful combination of PC® black label Beet & Goat Cheese Fresh Pasta, the PC® team makes it easy to turn desserts and side dishes from an afterthought to the star of any holiday dining experience.
“Brunch” allows food lovers to make the most of every minute of the holidays. Brunch can go beyond eggs and bacon to become an occasion with apps, mains and desserts, and even new cocktails. PC® Insiders Collection™ embraces this occasion with Black Forest Stuffed French Toast made with PC® The Decadent® Chocolate Cherry Loaf and the indulgent PC® Poutine Pie, along with new treats like PC® Speculoos Cookie Butter.
Reflecting the “Mingle” occasion, the PC® Insiders Collection™ features products and recipes with a unique blending of flavours to bring out exciting tastes and conversation. Add PC® Smoky Bacon Flavoured Maple Syrup to create a custom holiday cocktail and serve PC® World of Flavours™ Sweet & Spicy Gochujang Chicken Wings as a tasty appetizer.
And, for those who are guests, the “Gift” occasion includes edible items that are surprising, beautiful and delicious for any holiday party host. Go beyond the classic bottle of wine with PC® Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt Popcorn or the PC® Cranberry Pistachio & Toffee White Chocolate Bark.
You can find these Presidents Choice products in British Columbia, at Real Canadian Superstore®, Loblaws® CityMarket™, Your Independent Grocer® and No Frills®.
