The holiday season is upon us! Shops are decorated for Christmas. Hanukkah begins soon. And the weather is finally turning just a bit wintry.
As you know, this will be the last menu for delivery for a while. Of course, I am available to come and cook in your home or for special events of almost any size. I can accommodate a wide range of dietary needs and tailor cooking specifically for your needs.
There will be plenty of opportunities to see me around town, too! I'll still be cooking at Cuisine en Locale, for large and small events, pop-ups, and ONCEs. And don't forget to check out the Downtown Crossing Holiday Market - lots of local small businesses (including Alex's Ugly Sauce for the next couple weeks) are set up there every day until 7 pm to help you finish your holiday shopping!
Without further ado, here it is! A delightful new menu with a touch of holiday flair. This menu will be ready for delivery on Monday, December 3.
Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you all very soon!
Pumpkin Apple Soup! Not spicy, but richly flavored with sage and nutmeg, this soup will warm your soul on any winter night! $9
Vegetable Lasagna: Gluten free brown rice pasta layered with plenty of seasonal veggies and cashew "ricotta." What kinds of veggies? That's up to the farmer's market, but I expect to see butternut squash, tasty greens, and more. $13
Carrot Masala Dip: Vivid flavors warm you from your tastebuds to your toes. With sesame tahini, fresh ginger, and warming spices. Served with fresh veggies to dip. $12
Red Bean and Seasonal Veggie Chili: Nourishing, warm, and just a bit spicy. Served with brown rice. $11
Banana Buckwheat Chocolate Chip Muffins! Everyone's favorite! I can do them without chocolate on request. $10 half dozen, $18 dozen
By popular request, my famous Chocolate Hazelnut Spread! Served with chocolate chip scones so yummy you'd never know they were gluten free and vegan. (I can do a chocolate-free, cinnamon-vanilla version with cream scones on request.) Yum! $12
Please inform me or remind me if you have any allergies or sensitivities. I do not use wheat, gluten, meat, fish, egg, dairy, soy, or peanut in any Rather Crafty dishes. I do use tree nuts and seeds in some dishes, and while I am careful to minimize the risk of cross-contact, some risk exists. I use fresh fruits and veggies, local and/or organic when possible. Below is a guide to help you choose based on allergies, but it is not a comprehensive ingredients list.
SOUP: Small amount of cooked garlic and onion in broth and soup itself. No nuts.
LASAGNA: Will probably contain some cooked garlic. Will definitely contain cashews.
DIP: Contains some garlic. Contains sesame. No tree nuts. Richly flavored with Indian spices, but not super hot.
CHILI: Some cooked onion and garlic. No nuts. Contains beans. A little spicy.
MUFFINS: No nuts. May be done without chocolate on request.
CHOCOLATE SPREAD: Contains nuts. Scones contain cashews.
RAW: Choose carrot dip and the chocolate spread without scones.
GRAIN FREE: Choose soup, carrot dip, chili minus the rice, and chocolate spread without the scones.
ACD: Savory dishes are good choices for most. Muffins and chocolate spread are somewhat sweet; use your best judgement.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
