Have a Healthy Holiday Hosting tips and tricks with five of our favorite Arizona-based chefs and caterers. BY MICHELLE TALSMA EVERSON


The holiday season is here and, no matter what you celebrate, chances are that your festivities involve delicious dishes of some of your favorite foods. For those looking to continue their healthy eating habits over the holidays, we’ve gathered up some of our favorite Arizona-based chefs and asked them to share their healthy eating and holiday hosting tips as well as their favorite holiday dishes.

Mark Tarbell, owner of Tarbell's, Tarbell's Wine Store, and Tarbell's Wine Bar Tarbell’s provides high-level service, customized events, and catering options. They focus on sustainable food and beverage practices and utilize organic ingredients and local products from Arizona purveyors, farms, wineries, and ranches. Healthy holiday eating tips: Fully enjoy everything during the holidays. However, eat in micro portions. It’s not necessary to overindulge. Just eat smart. Top tips for hosting holiday gatherings: Planning ahead and preparation are key. On a high stress day when you’re entertaining, only cook the home runs or make your favorite recipes. Favorite holiday dish: My ultimate favorite holiday dish is maple glazed carrots studded with jammy cranberries. I oven roast organic carrots, heat up cranberries, douse it with the best quality maple syrup from New Hampshire, and lastly, add organic butter on top. It’s low in effort, tremendously easy to make, extraordinarily flavorful, and the presentation is effortlessly beautiful with natural colors from a few ingredients.
