We hope you enjoy our food as much as we enjoy preparing it for you! Here are a few facts or incites about our history and what we do.

**Our mission is to provide you with freshly prepared, flavorful, and tasty food that is conveniently packaged for you to take home and heat and serve. Our main focuses are classical regional Italian cuisine and Northwest American comfort food, where we utilize only the freshest available ingredients from as many local producers and farmers as possible.

**We established our business in 1993 out of a desire to spend more time with one another. Our motto became, "His talent, my mouth", reflecting his ability to cook exceptionally great food, and Mary Jean's ability to share and tell people about that great food while making them feel at home. We started with our flagship take-n-bake lasagnes, but rapidly progressed into making a wide variety of specialty items, one of the most popular being Mary Jean's notorious Chicken Pot Pies. Here we our now at our newest venture on Vista where we are going on five years already.

**You might also like to know that we prepare almost everything from scratch! We slow roast our lasagne sauce for many hours which lends itself to the wonderful flavor. In additon, we prepare our own stocks and make our soups from scratch as well as using classical and contemporary cooking techniques to prepare all of our sauces. We draw on local and regional bakeries for our bread as well as making a few in house so it is always fresh. Mary Jean loves to bake, and her mouth watering dessert case proves that. She gets inspired trying new things so her case is always changing, with the execption of some customers favorites they have to see on a regular basis.

**Most importantly, we thank you for your continued patronage over the years, and hope you enjoy your experiance with us. We believe that breaking bread and eating well with family and friends is good for the soul, and we wish to aid in keeping that tradition alive.

From our hearts to your table!
