This Week's Food

Still loving you.... a latke.

Still loving you.... a latke.

Over the past year we started doing pop-ups in our Family Dinner store.  We wanted to bring some of our favorite places, makers, and doers right into your home, to have a little fun and enchant your tummies during grey times. They have been the brain child of our teammate Olivia who carefully curates the collections and manages all the madness on the back end. For this week's Pop-Up we wanted to return to one of our favorite restaurants and the place where the Pop-Up Party began, Mamaleh's Delicatessen.

Shout Outs!

Shout Outs!

This week the Boston Renegades headed to Canton, Ohio for the Super Bowl of the Women's Football Alliance. They're on mission THREEPEAT after taking the Championship in 2018 and 2019.  This team gives us the warm fuzzies for sure given that many of the players (and both owners!) are Family Dinner customers. Several members of the team are also Family Dinner packers and drivers. (You may have seen them pulling a swim move past your dog to get your share on the porch and then doing high knees back to the car.)

Texachusetts in the House!

Chef Amanda Escamilla is the founder of Tex Mex Eats and the maker of the incredibly delicious tamales that pop up in the vegetarian shares, much to everyone's delight.  We have known Amanda for many years,  her professionalism, perfectionism and wonderfully infectious laugh never cease to amaze. Oh, and the tamales are out of this dang world.

We have started a Summer Stock Up option on the website.  We know you're so excited for a summer of travel, time with friends, family and good eating! As you plan your travel this summer, please take us with you!  Stock your fridge and freezer with your favorites from this collection; pork butts, crab cakes, tamales, EMPANADAS and more. If you don't see what you want, let us know and we'll help you get what you need for your trip! (I was tempted to call this section "TAKE ME WITH YOU" but was overruled for, once again, being far. too. creepy.)

Berry, Berry Excited.

Berry, Berry Excited.

It's Summer in New England which means it's time to grab more hot dogs and fried seafood than one person can reasonably handle. Personally, when I'm done smashing lobster rolls and French Fries into my face like a crazed Hungry, Hungry Hippo, I like to settle into a nice cobbler or short cake to really zero things out. It's simple math.

A last little love letter from the Seven Hills team: 

"We created Seven Hills Pasta Co. with the belief that food can bring people together. In Italy, when you are invited to a "Spaghettata" you're asked to enjoy more than a bowl of that country's best. We echo this call to celebrate good friends with good food. In that spirit, we invite you to share our pasta with the people who make your life richer, too!"

A few weeks ago we received a really wonderful email from a local high school student Alex Lo, pictured. Alex is sixteen and had just attended a talk we gave to a cohort at a MA HOBY event about Family Dinner and our mission to use data and technology to shorten the local food supply chain and eliminate waste in the system.

Something New in the Mix...

Something New in the Mix...

Working with other small local businesses is one of the highlights of our work. This week we are excited to team up with Carolyn's Farm Kitchen to bring her delicious pancake mix into your homes to level up your breakfast. Is there anything better than sitting in front of a giant pile of pancakes? (Am I the only one who will eat them cold, hours later? Maybe.)

A Love Letter...

A Love Letter...

It seems like eons ago that this photo was taken at our beloved old space at Foundation Kitchen. Tim and I were bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and pleased as punch to be delivering a whopping 30 shares a week. We have grown quite a bit since then, moved into our own kitchen space and, thanks to you all, grown to doing almost 700 deliveries a week. With that growth we are also honing our processes to make them greener and more sustainable, while continuing to bring you the best food we can find! This week Shannon, the team, and I wanted to highlight some of those efforts.

Ready for our Close Up!

This week we were lucky to partner with the folks at Urban Grape to be a part of their supper club.  We packed bags of fresh pasta, burrata, baguettes and more for them to pair with wine and send off to their customers at their beautiful wine store in downtown Boston. From their site: "Urban Grape is a Black-owned and woman-owned small business dedicated to building community through beverage."

Family Dinner Book Club

Family Dinner Book Club

We wanted to share a few of these things with you, suggestions from the staff.  It's sort of like a book club, only it's not just books, you don't have to see anyone or leave your house and you can still drink all the wine you like while enjoying them.
