Holidays are always associated with special, seasonal food, and this year we deserve at-home comfort more than ever, especially since we can’t be together. Need that slice of babka during Hannukah? Christmas Eve tourtière? Panettone almost as good as Nonna’s on Christmas morning? We did the grocery shopping for you, and here’s where to find those special holiday treats plus have them delivered safely to your door. —Catherine Dunwoody
tourtière. Often served on Christmas Eve, this French Canadian meat pie is traditionally made with ground pork and a savoury blend of spices. Get an eight-inch pie at Granville Island’s L’Epicerie Gourmande for $20.
panettone. Warm up this Milanese sweet bread with candied orange peel and raisins on Christmas morning served with hot coffee. Edmonton’s best Italian family-owned Pasticceria, Canova, ships its Panettone for $18 across Canada.
egg nog. Vancouver’s The Stock Market sells its delicious homemade egg nog from December 11 through the holidays, $6.50 per 500ml. Free delivery with a $50 purchase, so stock up on turkey stuffing and gravy while you’re ordering that nog.
cracked crab.
