The holiday season is upon us and commitments to entertaining can easily get overwhelming. The goal for Grimm’s Fine Foods is to take the stress out of entertaining and help hosts and hostesses all over Canada put together crowd-pleasing recipes and platters.

A wide variety of meats, cheeses and deli items lend themselves well to an array of different recipes from addictive appetizers to mouth-watering main courses. The majority of Grimm’s products are gluten-, lactose- and soy-free with no added MSG, so catering to a guest’s dietary restrictions is easier than ever.

Here are six recipes from the Grimm’s kitchen to add a little inspiration to your holiday menu...
