Sweet and Savoury Christmas Menu - The Old Schoolhouse


Sweet and Savoury Christmas Menu


To share a bit about the people behind The Old Schoolhouse®, we have collected a few staff traditions around what we do and what we eat! The Christmas season is so much about Jesus, and there’s no better way to follow His ways than to gather together and enjoy a meal.

Our CEO Angela Quigley has shared her family’s traditional Christmas meal and three recipes that blend tasty ingredients and satisfy the sweet cravings of the season.
