When it comes to hosting for the Holidays, my wife Julia and I love comfort foods with a touch of decadence. That’s why Snake River Farms always fits the bill. The season already has enough decisions waiting to be made, so when it comes to hosting dinner, we stick to what we know will be great: American Wagyu.

Hosting doesn’t have to be a chore, so we put together some of our favorite tips / recipes for entertaining during the holidays...
