Last chance for Maple Box!

26 March, 2021: Growing up in Texas, maple was this magic thing that only came around once a year, in the form of maple sugar candy that would appear under the Christmas tree.

16 March, 2021: Blue, Ayr’s son, helped take these photos and said “this is the best box ever!!” We’ve been having fun researching Easter traditions and making a box that gets you 90% of the way to one (or many) days of eating.

Gifts from Pushpir in India 💛

14 March, 2021: “I have okra. What do I make?” That was a text I sent to Pushpir back in 2015. He ran my favorite Indian restaurant (Guru the Caterer, still in operation today but under different management). We got to know one another and I would shoot him text messages when I had an ingredient so that he could guide… Read More

Introducing the Maple Celebration Meal Box!

4 March, 2021: Blue had the right idea licking his paper plate back in 2010.It’s the most magical, delicious, sticky, snowy, sunny time of year: maple sugaring season, when night temperatures drop below freezing, but the days are balmy.
