Favorite Dish

I love making salads with literally anything and everything in them – A favorite is a deconstructed falafel sandwich salad – with Town to Table Greens, Real Pickles Pickled Red Cabbage, Fabalish Falafel and Tzaziki, diced pickles, roasted cauliflower and leeks and a mixture of seeds for a little crunch. If you want, add the mixture to our Joseph’s pita for a sandwich!

WHY I LOVE NECM

NECM has allowed me the opportunity to truly focus on supporting sustainable agriculture in New England. We all know it has never been more important to support small & family owned businesses. Being able to connect hundreds of local producers creating some of the best food in the world to our customers, has been the most rewarding part!

WHY I LOVE NECM
I’ve always loved working in the food world. I think food is the quickest way to form a connection with a person, culture, or place. I also believe quality food is the best medicine a doctor can prescribe. I’m an ingredient junkie who cares deeply about sustainability, supporting local, and above all else, artisan cheese.

Why I love necm

It feels like we are doing a great thing. In the midst of a pandemic we found a way to offer a more convenient option to folks, while also supporting local businesses and keeping a food quality standard in place. I think it is wonderful to have another option other than going out grocery shopping once or twice a week. I also think it’s wonderful how Jeff and Elyssa have pivoted a family business into a community driven project and I look forward to the future of NECM
