The Family Life!

Sundays are for family, friends, good food and wine!

All Aboard the Fall Flavor Train!

Fall is my favourite time of year for multiple reasons.​  The air feels fresh and the scents and smells seem to evolve into richer more earthy tones.  I love the idea of fruits and meats mingling together and spicing things up with seasonings and dressings that primarily come out at this time of year.

Pork, apple cider, pumpkin,  butternut squash and hazel nut oils are some of our favorite seasonal ingredients. 

Join us today for a fall...........icious Sunday lunch!
