Christmas Cake
  "An elegant organic one-pound fruit cake, perfumed with port and brandy."  
    The New York Times  


Christmas Cake

Our Christmas cake is inspired by the traditional English fruitcake of the past. Its preparation takes the whole year - in the winter months we candy citrus peels and during the summer dry the stone fruits. In late summer we dry different grape varietals to make the currants and raisins.

Before baking, all of the fruit is macerated in a private reserve port from Prager Winery and Port Works and then mixed with the candied citrus peels, warm spices and Chardonnay brandy to create the rich, deep flavors in the cake.

We wrap our cake in cheesecloth and wash with aged brandies. The outer wrap is watercolored by June before a letterpress design is printed on it.

We proudly collaborate with local family farmers and artisan producers who provide us with the highest quality ingredients for our cake.


Christmas Cake


Christmas cake was once eaten with cold cuts of meat and cheese, but today we recommend it with tea, or a glass of port or sherry.

To serve, please refrigerate the cake until very cold, slice thinly and return to room temperature to serve

Historically mincemeat was an English meat pie filling where dried grapes, apples, candied citrus peel and spices, were all soaked in port and brandy, before combining with suet (the fat lining the kidney of a cow) and venison to create a rich, deeply concentrated, meat pie.

Mincemeat is ideal as a stuffing for roasted pork loin, game hen, and traditional venison pie, or sweeter uses, such as fillings for tarts and baked apples.

We are delighted to offer both a traditional version made with beef fat and a vegetarian one made with sweet butter.

Seckel Pears
in Cassis Syrup

We gently poach Seckel pears in a warmly spiced syrup to accentuate the pears sweet and spicy flavor, and then top it off with a blackcurrant vinegar.

The pears absorb the rich flavors and become a wonderful partner to blue cheeses and winter meats. But with a dollop of cream, they are a simple dessert delight.

Pickled Onions
Classically, the ploughmans lunch, a traditional British pub meal, consists of crusty white bread, some good cheddar and a pickled onion (along with a pint of ale, of course!).

Steeped and aged in a spiced malt vinegar, the onions are bracingly sharp and crunchy in texture.

Pair them with rich and buttery cheeses, fried fish, meats, especially cold cuts, and in a winter cocktail.

Apple & Pear Sauces
Gravenstein apples have long been associated with Sonoma County in California, although current production has declined so severely in recent decades that Slow Food USA declared the apple a heritage food in 2005 and included it in their ark of taste.

One of the first apples to ripen each year, the Gravenstein is sweet and tart, and when cooked into a sauce is delicately sweet, yet crisp and clear in its floral apple flavor.

It is excellent with pork sausage and other roasted meats. Serve with potato pancakes or in yogurt, with fresh cheese, or alongside breakfast foods.

This is a fresh product with almost no added sugar. We recommend eating within two weeks of opening.

Candied Citrus Peel
Reviving the traditional art of fruit confectionary and utilizing the entire fruit we candy citrus peel to create a tasty, bite size, fruit candy.

These candies can also be chopped and added to cookie, cake, scone or muffin dough or swirled into ice cream and yoghurt. They are a luscious topping for oatmeal, granola or rice pudding and can offer a zesty accent to vinaigrettes or tagines.
