I know you. No really.... I do, because you're just like me. The holidays are just around the corner and you've barely recovered from Thanksgiving. There's school functions and work events, and you need to buy something for everyone including the partridge in the pear tree. But then you want to open your home and celebrate with friends. Who has time to cook? You don't want those generic grocery store party platters, you want to treat the people who've taken care of you all year long.


So what DO you serve? RIS Home Entertaining and To-Go is here for all of those needs. From starters to sides, soups and sweets - we have it all. Click on the "Holiday Sides and Pies To Go" logo on the upper right corner of our website. Voilà! One-stop shopping for your next holiday party. Just add guests.

Happy December to you! This month is a great time to gather for lunch to celebrate the holidays. With our $25, 3-course "'Tis the Season" menu, you can treat the whole crowd to Chef Ris' red and green themed offering.


Start with Roasted Red Pepper and Corn Soup, with tortillas and sour cream or a fresh market Green Salad with green beans, radishes, herbs and Champagne Dijon vinaigrette. For your entree, try the Duck Leg Confit with roasted red bliss potatoes, red beets, braised red cabbage and mustard sauce. Spice things up with the New Mexican Grilled “Christmas” Mahi Mahi - red and green chilie sauces, black beans, posole and rice. For a sweet finish, enjoy Red Velvet Cake with pistachio ice cream or Green Apple Sorbet with cranberry biscotti.


Bring the gang down and celebrate with us - 'tis the season!
