Celebrating World Whiskey Day in Utah may sound like a tough goal, but we’re here to enlighten you. However, surprisingly it might become harder to celebrate World Whiskey Day in the coming years everywhere. Did you know the global supply of single malt scotch whiskey is running out? In a recent article published earlier this year on Huffington Post, prices of single malt scotch are skyrocketing as the demand for this long-aging spirit are outpacing supply. Perhaps it’s due to the rise in appropriation of turn-of-the-century, old school sensibilities to our modern life like beards, elaborate mustaches and good strong liquor, in addition to the increase in want of western culture items from foreign markets that can explain this exponential demand. This lack of supply could last upwards of 10-15 years while whiskey makers shuffle to keep up with demand. But rather than worry about tomorrow, let’s focus on how to celebrate today.
It’s that wonderful day again where we are encouraged to celebrate the classic and historical spirit that pairs so wonderfully with delicious food. But we are at a loss of exactly how to celebrate today, so we devised a list of all the ways we could celebrate wine. Here is what we are reading or planning for our day:
It’s been downright frigid the last few days in our hometown, Salt Lake City, Utah. Today also happens to be Homemade Soup Day and we can’t think of a better time to hunker down in our warm and embracing kitchens to make a meal that warms from the inside out. Today, we are craving our Creamy Tomato Soup. This is one of our most popular soups and we love to serve it as appetizers for cocktail hours or as a way to begin a beautiful meal. This appetizer is especially fun when served alongside mini grilled cheese sandwiches!
You’ll find that our Creamy Tomato Soup recipe is very easy to make and would be a perfect meal to make on those busy weeknights.
We hope you enjoy! If you’d like to try more of our recipes at home, you can buy our cookbook, A Taste of LeCroissant, on Amazon. Or, if you’d rather not do all the work, give us a call today and we’ll happily create a custom menu to meet your budget and culinary needs!
