Hello friends!

The New year is upon us and now is just as good a time as any to get back to global take-out,

specialty cakes and custom meals.

Food for sanity! 

After a lightning fast summer full to the brim, we took a long Autumn break to ready ourselves for the long dark months.

In these unprecedented and unpredictable times sometimes cooking and eating is the very thing we need to feel grounded.

I love bringing new cuisines weekly and creating a moment that might transport you or inspire you, as well as give you a break!


A few housekeeping things, pick up day is now Friday!

I was so lucky to be able to utilize Brooklin General Stores

great kitchen for two years, but I  found that I was getting so many orders

I needed an expanded kitchen to really be able to accommodate my needs.

I am now utilizing the amazing kitchen at the Halcyon Grange in Blue Hill. 

As many of you know prices for all things and supply chain issues

have really thrown a wrench into most services, especially food!

Our price for the 4 course will go up slightly to $48 per person, little raises make a big difference. 

Thank you all who have supported me and my business over all these years! 

You all make it possible!
