Deer District offers Thanksgiving 'Holiday Feasts' to-go 🦃
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee's Deer District is creating Thanksgiving meals to-go for the upcoming holiday.
The "Holiday Feasts" serve four to six people and are curated by Fiserv Forum Senior Executive Chef Kenneth Hardiman.
They include half of a traditional herb-roasted turkey with gravy, buttery-whipped potatoes, turkey stuffing, candied sweet potatoes, green beans with mushroom cream and crisp onions, cranberry relish, field green salad, artisan rolls with ginger pear butter and pumpkin pie.
Each package costs $150, according to the Deer District, and can include a whole turkey for an additional cost.
"These meals and these things take me to a place as I grew up where everybody within this climate right now wants to feel comfortable and at home, and we're excited to be providing such a service for everyone and we're thankful to be able to do this," said Chef Hardiman.
The Holiday Feasts can also be enhanced to include country ham with red-eye gravy, smoked pork loin in a cranberry-mustard gastrique, creamy baked macaroni and cheese, steamed broccoli with shallot-citrus butter, broccoli salad with cranberries and sunflower seeds, apple pie or pecan pie. An apple cider sangria cocktail, which serves 6-8 people, is also available.
Dinner packages are available for pre-order from Wednesday, Oct. 21 through Nov. 16.
Orders can be made online and will be available for curbside pickup at Fiserv Forum on Tuesday, Nov. 24 and Wednesday, Nov. 25 from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Fiserv says the orders will include step-by-step preparation instructions.
The Milwaukee Bucks say for each package purchased, they'll donate one turkey to Capuchin Community Services' House of Peace emergency food pantry.
