Place your holiday orders now!!!

We know how busy you are during this festive season. We can help out. Choose from our seasonal specials and regular favourites to share at your gatherings with colleagues, friends, and family.

Come in to place your orders in person at any of our locations or simply call us. Then you can cross one more thing off your to-do list, and ensure that you’ll have your favourite foods and treats during the holidays. These specials are available throughout the season, some into January.

Vínarterta

We thank the Icelandic community for this delicious treat. We are especially grateful to Signi and her Amma (grandma) for the careful and gentle teaching of their time-honoured method. Available with or without icing.

The Tall Grass Fruit Cake

Fruit and nut laden – we follow all the best traditions with this recipe. The fruit is aged in rum or brandy and fresh cider before being carefully baked. And yes, we do wrap it in cheesecloth. Enjoy!

Christopomo Bread

An ancient bread from the Greek Orthodox heritage, rich in butter, eggs, honey, and anise, decorated with almonds.

Tall Grass Fruit Bread

When you add fruit to a lovely light bread dough, there is a sweet simple harmony that blesses the senses.

Special Cookies

  • Mocha Kisses: A delightful blend of butter, chocolate, coffee, and sugar. Share them!
  • Russian Tea Biscuits: This royal shortbread creation is made with butter and crushed pecans.
  • Hazelnut Chocolate Dream: Indulge yourself and your guests in this rich, buttery hazelnut cookie dipped in chocolate.
  • Florentines: It’s wonderful what you can make with chocolate, candied orange peel, and almonds!

King’s Cake (Galette des rois)

A French tradition of the Middle Ages, a ‘treasure’ is baked into this cake. The finder is crowned King/Queen for the day. Made to celebrate Epiphany, starting January 6th and available until the end of the month.

Cranberry Relish

A great turkey dish accompaniment and a tasty alternative to cranberry sauce. Complete your holiday table with this zesty delight.

Complete Traditional Turkey Feast

The meal we look forward to all year, adapted for one or two diners. Roast turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, and carrots, for you to heat up at home.

Tourtičre

Our rendition of this classic French Canadian dish combines prairie fed bison from Swan Lake First Nation and heritage bred free range pork. Pairs deliciously with our house-made cranberry relish.

Plum Pudding with Sauce

This dessert reminds us of Christmases past. Serve with our rich sauce to complete your feast. Traditionally, during the making of the pudding, a wish was stirred into the mixture by each family member.

Mincemeat

A nod to English festive culture, this delectable vegetarian mixture of chopped nuts, dried fruit, distilled spirits, and spices is sold in gift-worthy jars. Also available by special order – baked into tarts, or in larger containers.

And of course our wide variety of breads are all about local and organic.

Our Tall Grass co-owner Tabitha Langel is the voice on our Christmas commercial heard on Winnipeg's Classic 107 FM station. Whether you love classical or jazz, we hope to connect with you during your listening time!
