 How We're Navigating Through Unprecedented Times 

As the year comes to a close and we look back on 2021, there are many things to be thankful for. Though it certainly wasn't the year we expected, it did bring quite a few good things. Reinventing is never fun, but often necessary. Since it is not fun, we are not inclined to do so, unless pushed, forced or otherwise kicked in the butt. That's what 2021 has been for so many of us, especially those in the event and restaurant business. Though we haven't made it out of the pandemic yet, I feel I can say I've survived it; as a business and as a human. There have certainly been challenges, uncertainties, apprehensions and unavoidable failures, but such is life. With those same experiences comes fortitude, perseverance, cognizance and gratitude. Many days I still experience all of these, but every day I am reminded of them. We don't know what the next year will hold. All we can control is how we face it. I hope to find peace and balance in 2022, something that has eluded me the past two years. I'm hopeful the skills I've learned, lessons lived and the encouragement received from all of you, will see that come to fruition. I know that I'm not alone in this quest and I hope the very same for you and your family this new year.
Thank you for your continued support.
Cheers, 
Erin

             Current Delivery Menu: February 2022              

                   Delivery Only Fridays-Sundays                    

 
UPDATE 2/14: After nearly 2 years, the delivery program will continue through the end of February, but will end at the end of the month. There will be some fun specials to celebrate the last two weeks. Catering and deliveries for the holidays will continue, as they did pre-covid. Thank you to so many who continued to support the program. I surely never expected it to continue for 2 years. Though I am thankful that it saw me through the pandemic, I'm very happy to get back to what I love, wine dinners! I hope to see you all at at dinner in the very near future.
Please be sure to see the bottom of the menu for the current schedule, full delivery information and instructions! You can schedule deliveries multiple days in advance, if you'd like, it does help me with planning! Don't worry if you don't see your area, just shoot me an email or text. I'm currently covering nearly all of San Diego County.
 
All items are crafted daily and ready to be enjoyed immediately or refrigerated for later consumption. Want the (almost!) full Chef Erin experience? Add the suggested wine pairing!
