Erica’s Kitchen is a home meal delivery service and caterer that serves only locally grown/produced foods. Owner/Chef Erica Miller Wallace, a 2005 graduate of the French Culinary Institute, travels around the Hudson Valley to find the best ingredients for dishes such as quinoa-lentil burgers, grilled shrimp fajitas, venison stew, rice-and-bean burritos, rainbow trout, and heirloom tomato bruschetta. Vegetarian (baked orzo) and vegan (rainbow chard braised with chickpeas) selections also are offered. Prices range from $25 to $36 per portion. Order must be placed three days in advance.
In 2004, Erica Miller Wallace changed her life. She left behind a corporate career as a pharmaceutical trainer and turned to local food. Now her blissful, seasonal cooking, using the products of our region’s sustainable farms, will change your life, too. Order her savory tarts topped with figs and Rainbeau Ridge goat cheese or local butternut squash and thyme for lunch or cocktail fare. Her personal chef abilities can make a dinner party a piece of cake: fragrant spring lamb stew with lamb from Dashing Star Farm, or chicken, ramps, and asparagus quesadilla with John Boy’s Farm’s chicken. You even can arrange for this changing deliciousness to be delivered weekly in compostable containers. And all this happens with Erica’s sweetest, most easy-going smile.
