Sample Menus

Note: These menus are only examples. I have thousands of recipes to choose from, and if you have a favorite recipe, I would be happy to prepare it for you.
  • Market Watch: organic seasonal meals from the farmers market to the table
  • Grandma's Kitchen: Eastern European favorites made with fine local ingredients
  • Gone Sailing: picnic baskets to take out on a sunny day
  • Shop & Chop Service - for those who love to cook, but never have time to shop and prep the ingredients, I do grocery shopping and advance preparation: clean and slice vegetables, marinate meats for the grill, make stocks, dough, and salad dressing; I then package and refrigerate them for you to use as needed.
