Serve this rich-and-creamy dip with French bread baguette slices, pickled Jerusalem artichokes, and crunchy baby vegetables like carrots, celery, cucumber slices, and radishes.
Local Cheese Assortment
Tempt guests' palates with a display of local or regional cheeses and a variety of crackers and breads.
Pork Roast with Carolina Gravy
Treat guests to a "food hug" with this succulent pork roast and mouthwatering pan gravy. We think it goes without saying how tasty tomorrow's sandwiches will be.
Asparagus-New Potato Hash
Recipe: Asparagus-New Potato Hash
The crisp texture and bright flavors of this hash complement the pork roast. Small red potatoes, which hold their shape when cooked, are the key to this recipe. Crumbled farmer's cheese adds tang.
