NICE TO MEET YOU!
Some people link memories to emotions, sights, or individuals, but for me my most precious memories I have are around food. I would sit and watch my Dad in the kitchen pouring love and talent into dish after dish. I would sit perched at the counter gobbling up a freshly shucked pea, apple slices, or dipping fresh bread into whatever was simmering on the stove. Our kitchen always smelled of butter, thyme, and onions sautéing on the stove. Those to me are the happiest smells because they filled our home with such love and connection.
As I got older, my love for food intensified as did my passion for seasonality in the foods that I grew and served. For eleven years, I left my New England home for the coast of California where I spent my weekends in wine country visiting cheese makers, wineries and local purveyors. I loved sharing the best of what I’d find with friends and family. I wanted them to experience that first taste just as I had.
When I returned to New England, I found myself continuously leaning into food as a medium for inspiration, connection and celebration - every family meal and gathering with my friends became an opportunity to express my creativity through curated cheeseboards and side dishes that celebrated all of the growing seasons our region offers.
Today, Marblehead Provisions is an online charcuterie and gourmet side dish delivery service that focuses on seasonal ingredients and pairings for small groups. Based in Marblehead, we currently serve customers in Salem, Swampscott and Marblehead.
To me, food has always been about love. My hope is that you feel that love in everything we create for your table.
