Friendsgiving with a Kennett twist
Each year we prepare for one of the biggest holidays of the year: Thanksgiving. The turkey, mashed potatoes, and classic football games continue to be a staple in traditions all around the country.
But what about Friendsgiving? It’s the perfect celebration to make uniquely yours. Invite your friends, create your own traditions, and try something completely new. In Kennett, there are plenty of delicious foods to add to your ultimate Friendsgiving spread. From choosing to go BBQ to adding global cuisine, here are some places in Kennett to really step-up your Friendsgiving game.
Friendsgiving Items: Artisnal cheeses, breads, European pastries, fresh bakery items, and roasted coffee.
Craft the perfect curated cheese board with sweets like grapes, apples, or honey. Don’t forget the fresh bread to pair with it! Platters for any palate are always a hit.
Friendsgiving Items: Authentic BBQ items like baby back ribs, pulled pork, chicken, smoked sausage, and more. Plus signature southern sides like 3-cheese potatoes and macaroni & cheese.
Put a BBQ twist to your main dish and check out the Hood’s catering menu. We can’t get enough of their Smoked Beef Brisket or the BBQ Pulled Pork. Turkey is the norm—but why not switch it up with your friends? It’s time to start a new tradition!
Friendsgiving Items: Hummus, guacamole, empanadas, falafel, tzatziki, burritos, tacos, salads, and more.
