We will also be accepting reservations for brunch on Saturday, February 13 and Sunday, February 14 and will have a handful of brunch specials alongside our full weekend brunch menu. Reservations can be made by calling 937-723-7637.

Each kit comes with written step by step recipes, as well as video tutorials with chef-y tricks from Chef Don. We hope these kits offer folks something to do to treat themselves or a loved one! All meal kits prepare 2 servings, and have optional add ons including salad, desserts, and bottles of wine.
