Houston Holiday Take-Out

In any given moment, I’m juggling multiple hats on my head, including my role as family holiday chef! There are favorites that my village can’t live without {crawfish and andouille stuffing at Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve gumbo come to mind}, but over the past couple years, I’ve found myself going against my nature and outsourcing some portions of these holiday meals. As Houston’s culinary scene moves out of its teenage years and into adulthood, we have so many delicious offerings at our fingertips.

So sit back, relax, pour a glass of wine, and enjoy a roundup of local offerings that top my list of deliciousness and just might complete your family’s holiday dinner this year!
