January happens to be National Sunday Supper Month. For traditionalists, Sunday supper usually means one thing – a hearty, robust family meal of roast beef and potatoes swimming in a rich, velvety gravy. If you’re British, Sunday supper might even be ingrained in your national identity. In fact, in a 2012 poll in the UK, people rated roast dinner as their second favourite thing about Britain. (Incidentally, a bacon sandwich landed the top spot.)
While we might be inclined to change up the menu now and then, maybe even ordering in when we’re too tired to cook, the spirit of Sunday supper remains the same – a time to slow down after a busy week and enjoy a cozy meal with family and friends. So, haul out that Dutch oven, gather your peeps around the table and let’s reignite this lost tradition.
Shorty’s Hot Honey
If ordering pizza is your idea of Sunday supper, consider elevating your pie with the addition of some hot honey by local company, Monster Sauce. Known for the Chili Crunch, a flavour-bomb of a sauce packed with fried garlic, ginger, chilies and peanuts, Monster Sauce is now venturing into the hot honey game. If you’ve never had hot honey on your pizza, or fried chicken for that matter, it’s time to give it a try. Sweet, spicy and sticky, Shorty’s Hot Honey is made with raw honey, whole chilis and a touch of apple cider vinegar. Order online or pick up a bottle (and a pizza!) at Dandy Brewing Company. Also available at The Cookbook Co. Cooks.
