The Dish's "Heat At Home" Meals
By Jillian Manning | Sept. 19, 2020
The convenience of takeout and the comfort of a home-cooked meal meet at The Dish Café in Traverse City, now offering “Heat at Home” meals Monday through Friday. Intended for two — with the promise of yummy lunchtime leftovers — these hearty dishes include an entrée and your choice of a quart of tomato basil soup or a salad (Caesar or tossed veggie). Weekday offerings include beef chimichurri burritos, lamb skewers with Mediterranean couscous salad, whole herb-roasted chicken, roasted veggie lasagna, and coconut curry chicken. Meals range from $23-26, and each kit comes with instructions for final cooking. We tried Wednesday’s chicken dish, which required 40 minutes of oven time and came with redskin potatoes and a savory mustard cream sauce. By the time it was plated, the kitchen smelled like Thanksgiving, and with the tomato basil soup (one of the café’s top sellers) at hand, there was more than enough fall flavor for two.
