La Madeleine French Bakery & Café has announced the return of its holiday menu, which pairs annual favorites with fresh new recipes. The café will feature items such as:

  • New Cranberry & Pecan Quinoa Salad – Massaged kale, quinoa, pecans, cranberries and feta mixed with balsamic vinaigrette and topped with la Madeleine's signature balsamic-marinated chicken
  • Turkey Cranberry Melt – Cranberry orange ciabatta roll, with a melty combination of smoked turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, provolone, and mayonnaise
  • Holiday Café Sampler – Guests can pair a French classic (quiche or savory stuffed puff pastry) with a cup of soup and petite salad

Holiday baked goods will also be available. Among those are Chocolate Pot de Crème Parfaits, Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Tart, Christmas Tree Linzer Cookies, Poinsettia and Christmas Tree Iced Cookies, and Gingerbread Crème Brûlée Mini Tarts.

One of the notable returning favorites is the Bûche de Noël. The traditional Yule Log Cake comes fully decorated, or with a decorate-at-home kit to make a fun holiday activity for kids.

“At la Madeleine, we take joy in knowing that we're not only serving food, but a unique experience all year around.  This comes to life especially during the holidays as our bakeries are a popular gathering place,” says John Cahill, la Madeleine's President and COO.  “The French holiday charm and signature la Madeleine recipes create an experience our guests want to share.”
