If part of ringing in the New Year for you is a delicious meal, you have more options than dine in, takeout and delivery! In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and some guests’ preference to eat their meals at home, local food providers have come up with creative ways to keep you fed while learning more about what it takes to prepare a delicious, restaurant-quality meal.
Cook @ Home Meal Kits for 2 from Sociable Kitchen + Tavern

Sociable Kitchen + Tavern now offers Cook @ Home Meal Kits for 2 ($45) that provide everything you need to cook a 3-course dinner in the comfort of your own home.

Celebration Kits from The Keg

Build-Your-Own Tacos from Bar Burrito
50 Market St. S., Brantford | 519-754-4985
This one’s a bit of a shortcut, but DIY tacos require a LOT of little bowls, chopping, shredding, and mess to clean up… Bar Burrito offers Family-Style Taco Kits that are great for families with pickier eaters. You can choose their soft shell taco kits with either 15 or 30 tacos ($48-90), then select your protein(s), toppings, and sauces. Each kit comes with the classic toppings – cheese, salsa and lettuce.
