Spring is just over three weeks away, so we’re dreaming of blue skies, warmer weather, and longer days with plenty of gorgeous sunlight. Spring also means the official start of grilling season for many families. While some of us use our barbeques throughout the year, many others shut them off for the winter season (understandably—not everyone wants to brave the cold!).
At Olliffe, we know that family is everything. Our families are the foundation of our lives, an important part of our personal history, and who we picture ourselves with when we envision the years ahead. They’re a source of love, encouragement and inspiration, and the place we call home. What’s more important than that?
Here at Olliffe, we understand that food plays a role in your Super Bowl Sunday. Knowing this, we’ve put together some game day options to make your spread the best in town. No matter who you’re cheering on (Go 49ers!) we hope you have a wonderful weekend! Please contact us if you’d like any assistance.
Today, we’d like to highlight our homestyle pasta sauces. These sauces are available in store and online, and we know you’re going to love them! Here’s everything you need to know.
While January is often a quiet, reflective month, it’s also a great time of year to get organized, start planning and prepare for the busy months ahead. Filling up your freezer with delicious, high quality, local food products is a great way to start.
Whether you’re cooking dinner for yourself, for two or for a large family, it’s easy to run out of meal ideas. Sure, you’ve got your tried and trusted favourite recipes, but what if you feel like something new once in a while? Plus, there are those evenings when life is so busy, you can’t begin to decide what to cook, not to mention special occasions that require a bit of planning. Where do you even begin?
Happy New Year from all of us at Olliffe! We hope you had a joyful, restful holiday season and are feeling motivated, enthusiastic and optimistic about 2024. We understand that many customers are looking for nutritious meal ideas after an indulgent holiday season—satisfying, healthy, local food that will help them feel strong and energetic as they tackle a new year.
It’s hard to believe that we’re just days away from Christmas and soon after that, we’ll be embarking on a new year. The Olliffe team would like to take this opportunity to reflect and share our heartfelt gratitude (plus a few important reminders related to your holiday orders).
If you’ve completed your shopping and holiday meal planning already, well done—it’s time to relax and enjoy the festive season. And if you’re still busy shopping, meal planning and getting ready to make Christmas magic happen, trust us: you’re not alone. Here are some quick reminders for anyone who still has to order their fresh local turkey or buy a last-minute holiday gift.
The holiday season is upon us and for many families, it’s the busiest time of the year. It can be hard to choose something special for some of the more challenging people on your list, whether it’s your in-laws, the friend who has everything or that client you want to impress. Knowing this, the Olliffe team has put together three excellent local gift ideas that are perfect for the holiday season. If you have any questions or would like some help placing your order, please contact us! You can reach us by phone or email, and you’re welcome to stop by our Yonge Street butcher shop to place your order in person.
If you’re hosting a holiday party in the coming weeks, you’re probably planning a delicious, festive menu for your guests. Many winter gatherings involve small bites instead of a large meal, which means putting together a list of delicious apps that will taste great, please a crowd and complement any drinks you’re serving.
The holiday season is upon us, and your calendar may have quite a few festive occasions on it already. Between dinner parties, cocktail events, family meals and other special occasions, there are a lot of dates to keep track of—but also plenty of opportunities to create exceptional meals for your loved ones.
