Local Love Catering’s chef Barry Horton eschews animal products to create inventive international dishes with local ingredients. A frequently changing menu, featuring new entrees each month, is packed with fresh veggies and savory proteins aiming to merge the flavor and nutrition of a home-cooked meal in family-style packaging with the convenience of a wormhole to Grandma’s. Vegan tamales bundle morsels of butternut squash and caramelized onions within a creamy blanket of masa as a final layer of mole poblano sets taste buds ablaze. For an Asian edge, kung pao tofu rules the table with a spicy fist as it sits atop a throne of seasonal vegetables, whereas hearty shepherd’s pies and a variety of gluten-free pizzas send palates further west, much like a gummy-Christopher Columbus.
With dinner plates cleaned, diners move on to a dessert selection that might include such treats as chocolate cake, Mexican wedding cookies, and house-made peanut-butter-cup parfaits. Each dish arrives in a compostable container with convenient reheating instructions, giving household chefs the tools they need to prepare a dashing dinner without the hassle of obtaining portobello steaks from the local butcher.
