The Made In Kitchen Holiday Menu

With the exception of the Apple Crumble Pie recipe, our holiday menu was created by our Creative Culinary Director Rhoda Boone for the Made In Kitchen.

Mulled Wine

Skip the electronic version and make your mulled wine in the original slow cooker, the Dutch Oven. Red wine and brandy combined with cinnamon, cloves, and star anise makes for the quintessential warming holiday drink. Bonus: it will make your home smell amazing!

Hot Honey-Glazed Ham

honey ham

Ham is a staple holiday dish, but that doesn’t mean it has to be dry or boring. This recipe includes a homemade sweet and spicy glaze that’s an easy way to dress up a store-bought smoked ham. It comes together in just 2 hours, but tastes like it took all day and couldn’t be a prettier centerpiece for your table.

Dutch Oven Dinner Rolls

No holiday plate is complete without dinner rolls, with a bonus if they’re homemade and fresh from the oven. This recipe is crafted in our Dutch Oven to ensure perfectly browned tops and pillowy-soft interiors.

Blistered Green Beans Almondine

A classic French side for a reason, this bright dish combines fresh green beans with shallots and toasted almonds, plus a touch of high-heat char from our Carbon Steel Frying Pan.

Shingled Potatoes with Sage and Gruyère

What You’ll Need

Dinnerware and Glassware

Sorry, no variant match your search.

During the holiday season, what you serve your meals on is just as important as what’s on the plate. Bring modern elegance to your table this holiday season with our Tabletop Collection, whether you’re proudly displaying your hot honey ham on a Serving Platter or serving up your mulled wine in Coffee Mugs.

Stainless Clad Essentials

Stainless Clad Cookware is a staple for any home chef, whether you’re the hosting house for all holiday get-togethers or are assembling your potluck contribution at the last minute. Whether you’re using the Saucepan to assemble the hot honey glaze or browning your glazed carrots with a Frying Pan, these are staple building blocks that can be used time and time again.

Carbon Steel Roasting Pan

Roasting Pans get their due during the holidays, making them an essential part of hosting and entertaining. Whether you’re slow-roasting your turkey or baking your ham, level up from the grocery store foil pans and invest in a Carbon Steel Roasting Pan that will take your proteins from good to great.

Professional Quality Knives

Sharp, dependable Knives are the backbone of every great kitchen, make prep a breeze, and reduce the amount of accidents in your kitchen. The Chef Knife is our go-to for any and all purposes, while a Carving Knife is important to have for any host looking to carve their protein with the care it deserves. Since all of our Knives are crafted by 5th generation bladesmiths in the Knife capital of the world, you can rest assured you’re getting a Knife you can rely on.

Hand-Enameled Dutch Oven

There’s a reason Dutch Ovens are passed down from generation to generation—they’re a true heirloom piece that can handle almost any technique, tool, or recipe you can throw at it. It’s an indispensable piece of cookware always, but in the colder months it’s our go-to for anything from mulled wine to rolls.

French Bakeware

The holiday menu calls for the 8x8 Baking Dish and a deep Pie Dish—but we can guarantee that you’ll soon want to build an entire French Porcelain collection.
