Crab Cakes, Oh My! Create an Elegant Holiday Party with Easy eMeals Plan

Recipes, Beverage Pairings & Web-Shoppable Ingredients Make Quick Work of Entertaining

BIRMINGHAM, AL (December 8, 2021) - Planning an intimate holiday dinner for 6 to 8 but want to wow your guests without spending hours in the kitchen? The Holiday Dinner Party Occasions Plan from eMeals, America's leading meal planning service, is just the ticket - complete with easy recipes, go-with spirits, digitally generated grocery lists and fast online shopping options. It's available to both eMeals subscribers and non-subscribers at

Crab cakes and more: The centerpiece of the menu is a restaurant-worthy dish of Herbed Crab Cakes topped by Sparkling Beurre Blanc, instantly separating the meal from everyday fare. This elegant entrée is joined by a festive Sparkling Pomegranate Cocktail garnished with pomegranate arils, an appetizer of Roasted Grape Crostini with Vanilla Mascarpone, sides of Parmesan-Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Lemon-Roasted Broccolini, and a Crème Brulée Cheesecake for dessert. Almost everything can be made ahead and finished just before serving, easing the stress of entertaining.

Liquid holiday cheer: No holiday meal is complete without a few toasts (assuming you're 21 and drink responsibly, of course!). The eMeals Holiday Dinner Party plan not only recommends just the right alcohol pairing for each course but also uses the same spirits in several recipes so you'll get the most use out of every bottle. From the Ruffino Prosecco that provides the fizz in the Sparkling Pomegranate Cocktail to the Cook's Brut Sparkling Wine (used in the crab cakes' beurre blanc) and the Corona® Hard Seltzer (adding zing to the cheesecake), you get recommended beverage pairings that do double duty as recipe builders.

Tap to shop, in-store or online: Who wants to waste time writing a grocery list or making item-by-item entries in an online shopping cart? Simply select the recipes you want to make from the eMeals mobile app or the Holiday Dinner Party landing page, and eMeals will automatically generate a shopping list that you can use to self-shop at your local grocery store or tap for online grocery fulfillment from Amazon, Walmart, Kroger or any of the retailers served by Instacart and Shipt. It's fast, easy, and ensures you won't forget an ingredient.
