After almost 30 years of being the go-to resource for cottaging, Cottage Life has introduced a line of food products to showcase all we love – and know – about lakeside life (or bay-side for those of us in the Bay of Quinte Region!).

Cottage Life partnered with Mississauga’s Orange Crate Foods to develop “no-fuss” seasonings, dips, drink rimmers, salad dressings and salsa’s.  Just in time for the holidays, Cottage Life has expanded the collection to include pancake mixes, granola, hot chocolate, apple cider, rice & pasta mixes and festive Cheeseball seasonings & gift sets.

Kates-Christmas-30The creators, the Cook family from Minden, Ontario are long time cottagers. They know the last thing anyone wants is to be stuck in the kitchen while others are visiting or relaxing, so they’ve made sure the products are simple to use and versatile. Many of their products can be used multiple times and can be re-purposed as a dry-rub or a vegetable seasoning! Everyone, from those looking for a gluten-free option to your fussy teenager, will devour these!!

Kate’s Kitchen is also all about ‘no-fuss’….especially around the holidays. We have all the best sellers from the Cottage Life Weekend Collection and just the right serving ware that will take you straight from the refrigerator or oven to your holiday table.  We’ve taste tested every one of the items in the Weekend Collection and are ready to offer you some different ideas about how we’ve use them at home, at parties and for both sit-down and buffet style meals.

The Cottage Life Weekend Collection is proving to be a hit with folks in Quinte Region and the expanded line is only available at 2 shops – Kate’s Kitchen in downtown Belleville and one boutique in the County. We hope you’ll stop in soon to taste-test some of the products yourself! We’d love to hear some of the ways you’ve used the seasonings, dips et al – we’re always looking for new ideas! AND, we bet you’ll love the serving dishes we have available to make your hard work “slaving” in the kitchen look its very best.

Whether you’re lakeside, bay side or wishing you were there, Kate’s Kitchen has lots to offer this Christmas season! Stop in and we’ll offer new ideas for your holiday table![/fusion_text]
