ONCE a Week Highlights... Comedy and Upcoming Events... Menu Brainstorm!

Written by Mary Greenfield.


All things local and delicious.


Gorgeous Food, No Filters!

How great does this dinner look? Every week, we offer 8 – 10 freshly made, amazing dishes to tempt you. Here are a few highlights from both our Vegevore and Omnivore shares from this week:

Omnivores will enjoy half of a tender and succulent Stillman chicken, with roasted vegetables and gravy. Great with our creamed greens or sauteed collards on the side. More highlights this week included a gorgeous Tuscan white bean soup, cider pulled pork, and a duet of signature cookies.




This amazing pilaf was a Vegevore exclusive this week. Four Star Farms triticale and Baer's Best Black Coco beans make a complete vegan protein. They are delicious and nourishing on their own, but we took them to the next level with sweet potato, parsnip, kale, and onion. Other Vegevore exclusives this week include cider infused polenta with roasted beets and chevre, and a trio of lovely dips - perfect for vegetables, chips, or our freshly baked Mano'oushe flatbread!

Comedy night, and upcoming events

Want a little funny business in your life? Join us for a night of stand up comedy on Thursday, March 27 at Cuisine en Locale HQ, 156 Highland Avenue, Somerville. We'll feature locally grown stand-up comedy and a great bar menu. We'll be serving our Gigantic Hot Pretzel and homemade mustard, Pulled Pork Sliders, and by popular demand: Bacon is Meat Candy Tart!


We will also offer tastes of some of our signature hors d'oeuvres at events like the Taste at the Griffin Museum on Friday and Craft My Wedding on Sunday. Come on down!

Menu Brainstorm!

Here's a taste of what our Chefs have brainstormed for next week's meal delivery. As always, there will be an assortment of protein-rich main dishes, vegetable based sides, and of course, something from the bakery. These are just a few of the tasty treats we plan for next week:

Saag Paneer with beans

Cabbage Soup with Apples

The CeL Crew



"When my wife went back to work three months after having our first child, we found ourselves eating takeout for weekday dinners four or even five times a week. It took a toll on our finances and our mental and physical health. Then we discovered ONCE a Week. Now we eat easy, delicious, interesting, and locally sourced dinners -- and for far less than we were spending on all that takeout. Every Tuesday is like Christmas when we eagerly look to see what we'll be eating that week. Thanks, JJ & Co., for solving weekday dinners for us."
