No matter who you’re planning on spending this New Year’s Eve with, celebrate in style with a selection of our favourite party recipes.

From elegant canapés to sophisticated cocktails, you’ll be able to impress guests and welcome in 2022 with the sweet taste of maple!

Dainty Canapés

Canapés are an ideal start to a celebration; they look stylish, taste amazing, and can be made in advance, ensuring you can spend as much time enjoying the fun and not hidden away in the kitchen. 

For a deceptively simple, flavour packed bite – why not try our prunes and gorgonzola wrapped in maple-glazed pancetta. Or our prosciutto, figs, goats cheese and maple crostini won’t let you down either.

Or get to grips with brining, by perfecting our Maple Cured Salmon on Butter Toasts for a no-cook canapé with class. Delicate tasting maple syrup infuses the brinded salmon fillet, adding a subtle sweetness that strengthens the longer it cures.

Satisfying Selection

Make the most out of the supermarket festive deals with our Maple Glazed Ham Hock Terrine that serves up to 8 people. In our take on this rustic classic, we’ve combined salty baked ham, homemade cider stock and the subtle sweetness of maple to create a crowd pleaser that’s guaranteed to satisfy.

Forget the standard quiche Loraine and master our Maple, Pear, Walnut and Blue Cheese Tart for a vegetarian delight that’s hard to keep hands off. In this dish, shortcrust pastry encases a creamy custard, spiked with blue cheese and maple, before being topped with ripe pears and walnuts.

Delightful Desserts

Our Vegan Chocolate and Maple Fondant delivers the rich, gooey centre and light exterior that you’d expect from a traditional fondant while being 100% vegan. It’s worth the extra effort, and by getting it right you’ll be sure to impress.

For our twist on a French classic, take on our Maple Croquembouche to provide a showstopper fit for any celebration. Choux buns are filled with a maple crème pâtissière and stacked together with caramel, as delicious as it is impressive.

Impressive Cocktails

Why not try a festive classic with our deliciously creamy maple eggnog. This party favourite is topped with a sprinkle of cinnamon and is taken to the next level with a splash of pure Canadian maple syrup.

Serve something more refreshing with our maple cranberry and bourbon fizz – a delicious, whiskey-based cocktail that is the perfect addition for a New Year’s party.
