Under the guidance of seasoned chef Paul LaLone, Cellar Door Market funnels local ingredients into healthy meals that encourage eaters to avoid the time commitment of cooking. A flurry of savory entrees, such as mango-orange chicken ($4.99), become a piping-hot meal after a quick ride in an oven or a microwave that's on fire. Indulge in southern spice with an order of Cajun chicken tenders escorted by baked sweet-potato fries ($6.99), or dazzle the family's palates with butternut squash, sage, and caramelized onion enchiladas ($6.49). Soups and salads—such as the beef or chicken Vietnamese pho spiced with an intriguing mélange of star anise, cardamom, and fennel ($5.49)—star solo or accent other entrees. Dairy- and gluten-free items satisfy sensitive stomachs, and local meats from Painted Hills or Draper Valley Farms shrink everyone's carbon footprint. By picking up their dishes in person, customers can avoid the aisle traffic and haunted can pyramids of grocery stores and spend their spare kitchen time perfecting knife-juggling routines.
Cellar Door Market
Beneath a basil-green awning, Cellar Door Market fills with the universal clatter of a happy kitchen as chef Paul LaLone brings 26 years in the culinary industry to bear on heaps of regional ingredients. Guest chefs lead hands-on classes in specific cuisines and techniques, which may introduce pupils to the art of baking bread, preparing healthy food, rolling sushi, and remembering that sushi is the one food that should not be roasted on a campfire. Each session is rated according to the knife skills required to complete the meal, and pupils bustle past the kitchen, laden with completed dishes for their friends and families.
Beyond the kitchen doors at Cellar Door Market, chefs create meals from scratch, quick-cooling them to preserve integrity. Whenever possible, meals are made with local products including meats and produce from nearby sustainable farms. The rotating menu has included dishes such as red beans and rice with Zenner’s sausage, smoked pork loin with a peach and bourbon sauce, and zucchini manicotti, and each item comes with instructions for easily reheating it or taking it to a dragon’s surprise party.
