Christmas Turkey Baskets Filled With Great Local Gift Ideas
News flash, Christmas is only days away! Of course, you’ve already finished your shopping right? You’re not one of those people who hasn’t even started yet, that’d be far to naughty for you. But, just in case you're searching for that last elusive gift, fear not, we are here to help you out with some great, locally sourced ideas. We’ve been shopping too…
We just finished putting together 140 holiday turkey baskets, to thank each of our Super Team members. The past few Christmas seasons we have stocked them full of local products and snacks, in support of Manitoban entrepreneurs. Here are the local companies and their products that we have included for our Super family this year!
Cranberry wine mustard from Smak Dab Gourmet Mustards. Now a successful business owner and chef, Carly Minish-Wytinck has proven that mustard is the must-have ingredient in your kitchen, and she’s hoping that you will see the same quality that mustard adds to a humble, yet beautiful dish. She also really loves sharing community stories, inspiring self-expression in the kitchen. During Carly’s journey towards achieving her Red Seal Certification, she recognized the versatility and significance of mustard in the kitchen as a special and effortless element to bring familiar meals to new heights – that a simple spoonful of mustard makes all the difference in the flavour and overall composition of a dish. Using her skills and talents as a trained chef, she has carved her own entrepreneurial and culinary path, filling the gap in the local food market for high-quality mustard that people of all cooking levels can easily dabble with.
