Saffron imparts a golden hue and faintly spicy flavor to a buttery cake filled with almond paste, dried cranberries, and orange zest. A popular Swedish holiday treat, this recipe is based on one from Gunilla von Heland, a food editor in Stockholm.
December may be cold and dark, but as far as we're concerned, that's the ideal scenario for slow-cooked stews, savory roasted chicken, indulgent cocktails, and rich, spiced cookies and treats. Here are 14 recipes we're looking forward to making this month.
Wide, tree-lined pathways; brick and stone buildings covered in ivy; playing fields; a clock tower—The American Club Resort in Kohler, Wisconsin, feels so much like a college campus, I wished I had packed a letter sweater.
Hitting the road is what SAVEUR editors do best—we love the thrill of travel. These items, from a genius portable cocktail kit to a luxe carry-on bag, make for the perfect gifts for anyone with a serious case of wanderlust.
During Prohibition in Washington, D.C., a well-known bootlegger named George Cassiday supplied Capitol Hill's lawmakers while wearing a green felt hat. Last year, when New Columbia Distillers became the District's first legal distillery in more than a century, it paid homage with Green Hat Gin ($36).
Spice up your dinner routine this holiday season with a menu of rich, aromatic, ginger-spiced dishes. Start off with snow crab legs flavored with cracked pepper and ginger, paired with whiskey cocktails made with a ginger-peppercorn syrup. For the main course, a crisp-skinned duck breast enhanced with Chinese five-spice powder makes an impressive display alongside ginger-glazed carrots and baby Asian greens dressed in umami-rich vinaigrette. An after-dinner treat of sticky-sweet cookies tastes delicious with a cup of ginger-laced coffee.
