Pacific Institute Of Culinary Arts Announces Holiday Dinner To-Go Menus

Do you enjoy Christmas, or other holiday, dinner, but would rather not cook it yourself?  Why not get the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts make your holiday dinner for you?  Their press release is below. 

I don’t see any wine listed, but consider BC wines.  A nice BC lightly oaked Chardonnay or juicy Merlot would fit the bill.  Or go all out and buy BC sparkling wine! This will likely sell out fast as their Thanksgiving offering sold out.


Vancouver, BC, November 22, 2021 – Blue Hat Bakery-Café at Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts is removing the hassle from the holidays and helping hosts spend more quality time with friends and family by offering Holiday Dinner To-Go Packages now available for pre-order and pickup on December 23 and 24 as well as delicious selection of traditional, seasonal-staple cakes and confections.
Available now for pre-order via the PICA website, the Holiday Dinner To-Go packages are $109 plus tax and features a ready-made feast with enough food for two or more hungry adults to share courtesy of a choice of mouth-watering main dishes (Oven-Roasted Turkey Breast or Star Anise and Red Wine-Braised Short Rib) with all the trimmings in addition to gourmet sides and two desserts.
