It's been a problem Christmas party organizers have been facing ever since—where to get the party fare? When we were kids, it's easy because we were all good with the spaghetti and chicken combo. But as we grew up and discovered potluck, we started to always look forward to something new to be laid on the table, whether it's the fondue that your friend wants to impress all of you with or your mom's special kare-kare.
For this year's celebration, though, cut yourselves the hassle when it comes to the grub. If you're looking for a great-tasting, homecooked-style spread, Nawwty's Kitchen is your best option.
Trish Panlilio, the woman behind the brand, started this venture out of her love for luxe comfort food. And now, she's been catering to others and sharing her specialties that are sure winners on everyone's tastebuds.
For their holiday menu, she whips up her classic favorites. She says, "Stick to familiar tastes as this is always what's most comforting especially during the holidays. The twists can be based on personal preferences or intentions as this is what will make it most personal. Adding special ingredients also adds in elevating the dish."
Here are our recommendations, in case you're overwhelmed by their long list of goodies (although anything you choose is to-die-for). As early as now: Christmas Party Fare—checked!
