BIRMINGHAM, AL and SONOMA, CA (October 25, 2023) - Trick or treating may be just for kids, but that doesn't mean you can't have a Halloween get-together for grownups! Now eMeals and Imagery Estate Winery make it frightfully easy with the Drop-Dead Delicious Bites Bonus Collection - a free set of bite-sized recipe options and wine recommendations offering ghoulishly good grazing with minimal effort.
Bewitching bites: Available immediately on the special eMeals landing page or in the eMeals app for subscribers, the collection offers 10 options for dressing your Halloween table. For starters, choose from two charcuterie-style boards - a Fruit and Nut Butter Board featuring cinnamon butter topped with dates, apricots, cranberries and nuts served with baguette slices, or a Fall Salad Board with lacinato kale, radicchio, apple, figs, blue cheese, glazed pecans and prosciutto served with crackers. Then add whatever else floats your boat, from Curried Butternut Squash Soup Shooters and Gnocchi, Green Olive and Sun-Dried Tomato Skewers to six other choices, including Chocolate-Cream Cheese Brownies.
Perfect wine pairings: If adult beverages are going to be on the menu, the collection serves as your sommelier by recommending wine pairings from Imagery Estate Winery for each recipe. Whether it's Imagery Estate's Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir or Cabernet Sauvignon, you get stellar wines from vineyards in Sonoma that are priced at under $15 per bottle.
Beyond Halloween: The Drop-Dead Delicious Bites Bonus Collection is the latest installment in eMeals' weekly meal planning service, which provides inspiration and variety while also saving families two hours of meal planning time every week. The service offers a choice of meal plans for 15 different eating styles including Quick and Healthy, Clean Eating, Low Calorie, Low Carb, 30 Minute Meals, Kid Friendly and Vegetarian; the option to mix and match menus from any style and the ability to substitute favorites from previous weeks; periodic Occasions Plan and Bonus Collection menus for recipes that may not fit into the nightly dinner category; and one-click shopping from major retailers.
