The summeriest of summer menus! For delivery to Boston and surroundings, Tuesday, July 31!

Hello wonderful folks! Can you believe it's almost the end of July?

It is definitely high summer here in Crafty Land. Right now is the best time to take advantage of some of the best produce summer has to offer, so let's get right to it!

This colorful new menu features so much local produce it's amazing! In fact, every dish prominently features at least one local fruit or veggie, and some feature six or seven or more! This menu will be ready to deliver on Tuesday, July 31. Please try to place orders by the end of Sunday night, but I do my best to fill orders that come in right through Monday. The earlier the better, though!

Thanks so much, and I look forward to cooking for you soon! (As always, allergy/sensitivity info is below the menu. Please inquire for even more details!)

Much love,
Chef Mary


Summer Corn Chowder

Corn Chowder! Corn season is upon us, and what better way to celebrate it than with the summeriest of summer soups? Yum! $9


Guacamole! It is no secret that I love avocados. They are my favorite fruit! Here they get all happy in the quintessential raw dip, with peppers, cilantro, and lime. Served with plenty of crunchy local veggies to dip. My idea of heaven! $11

The Littlest Carrot
Quinoa Tabbouli! Tabbouli, tabbouleh, delicious any way you spell it! The traditional middle eastern grain salad gets a gluten free update with lovely red quinoa. Fresh parsley, lemon, cucumber, tomato, and quinoa take it to a whole new level. High protein hemp seeds boost the nutrition even more! (Yes, I will make an all-raw, all-hemp-and-veggie version on request.) $12

Fresh Local Produce!
Colcannon! Everyone's favorite mashed potato dish! Lovely new potatoes (yup, they're local too!) are mixed with cashew milk, plenty of fresh dark leafy greens, and a smattering of scallions. Served with roasted mixed squash and topped with toasty pumpkin seeds. $11

Beet and bean pilaf! Long grain brown rice, assorted types of local beets, and nourishing beans come together with fresh herbs and leafy greens for an amazing (and stunning) plate. Yum! $10


Chocolate zucchini muffins! A childhood favorite, rediscovered! $10 half dozen, $18 dozen

Raw Blueberry and Chai Spice Mousse! This rich, fluffy mousse has a secret ingredient: Irish moss, also called carrageen or carrageenan. It's a seaweed that grows wild in the northern Atlantic, from Maine all the way across to Ireland and her neighbors. It is an amazing ingredient that allows raw or cooked foods to set up in a way that is similar to gelatin, but I promise this mousse is 100% cruelty free! $9


Please let me know before ordering if you have any allergies or sensitivities. I do not use any meat, dairy, or egg ingredients. I do not use any peanut or soy ingredients. I do not use wheat or gluten ingredients. I do use tree nuts, seeds, coconut, non-gluten grains, and lots and lots of fruits and veggies. Some sensitivities I'm aware of in our midst are listed below, but it is not an exhaustive ingredients list. I try to avoid cross contact between nuts and non-nut dishes, but please know that nuts are present in the kitchen. Please remind me of your sensitivities when you order. Thank you!

NUTS and SEEDS: Cashew creme can be eliminated from soup on request. Guac is nut and seed free! Tabbouleh is nut free; if you are sensitive to hemp I can leave it off; if you are sensitive to quinoa I can leave it off too! Colcannon DOES contain cashew; pumpkin seeds can be left off on request. Pilaf is nut free but does contain beans. Muffins are nut free. They do contain flax and cocoa. Oil in muffins may be sunflower or safflower seed oil (always cold pressed, GMO free, and hexane free, of course!) Oil in savory dishes is olive. (I also use coconut flour in baking, and virgin coconut oil occasionally as appropriate; let me know if you are sensitive to it!) Blueberry mousse contains cashews and/or almonds.

GARLIC: Soup contains a small amount. Entrees can all be garlic-free on request. Sweets are naturally garlic free.

SCD/GRAIN FREE: Choose Colcannon, Guacamole, raw version of Tabbouleh, and Blueberry Chai Mousse.

RAW: Choose Guac, raw version of Tabbouleh, and Mousse.

ACD: Guac and raw version of Tabbouleh are the very best ACD choices, but there are many good options! The muffins are the sweetest item, and not suitable for stage 1. If you tolerate fruits and grains, feel free to order anything else!

Thank you all so much for reading and supporting locally grown, freshly made food!

Much love,
Chef Mary
