The Season's Best Small Bites

By Megan Myers, December 14, 2012  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Megan Myers

The holiday entertaining season is in full swing! I love getting together with friends to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s – not only because I get to see people I love, but because there’s always plenty of nibbles.

Parties featuring small bites instead of full meals make for a relaxed atmosphere and allow for a wide variety of foods. There’s always something to make every palate happy, and the small portions make it easy to visit with friends instead of being stuck at a table for a five-course dinner.

Even with small bites, you don’t need to skimp on quality or on your values. Whole Foods Market® shrimp and crab are sourced from farmers and fishermen that meet our quality standards for farmed and wild-caught seafood

The meat we sell comes from healthy animals raised with no added hormones* and no antibiotics, ever.  The animals are raised with care according to Global Animal Partnership’s 5-Step™ Animal Welfare Rating Standards.

Are you planning a seasonal soiree at your house? These recipes will make your bash a blast!
