The initiative shines a spotlight on seven local chefs, who have personally created at-home meal kits featuring dishes from their popular restaurants.

Starting at $45, the meal kits are good for two or more people and come equipped with either a live online class, a pre-recorded video or set of instructions for an easy, convenient and fun culinary experience in the comfort of your own kitchen.
