What is Folklore?
High-quality, delicious meals without the restaurant cost or hassle of cooking yourself. Made fresh, delivered to you! All our meals are designed and prepared by a classically trained chef using local vendors and organic ingredients.

FOLKLORE IS CURRENTLY ON SUMMER BREAK.

How satisfying is it to come home to a seasonally inspired, lovingly prepared and sweetly packaged meal tucked away in your fridge? Let me tell you, very satisfying. Even as—and maybe especially as—a chef, I love the feeling of being cooked for and cared for by others.

Folklore is taking the summer off

You may know that we recently had twin boys; now with three kids ages three and under we are—as you can imagine—not sleeping much and quite literally have our hands full. In order to truly make the most of this precious infant phase and settle into life as a family of five, we have decided to take a true summer break to be together.

We are postponing meal delivery until the late fall time; this week will be our last week of delivery. In addition, we have already hit our maximum catering bookings for the summer so we are not taking on any new catering clients until October. (We are taking inquiries, however, so feel free to be in touch or share with others for events in late fall and winter). 

Serendipitously, this also coincides with some strategic planning work we are doing with 1Berkshire to focus our business to better serve the Berkshires. 

There is nothing we love more than sharing the best food this region has to offer and we are eager to come back from summer break with not just the delicious creativity that we are known for, but also a stronger sense of our place in the local market.   

Thank you for sharing this exciting journey with us and keep in touch with us on social media! You can find us on Instagram at @folklorefoodsand on Facebook at FolkloreCatering

Sincerely, 
Simeon and Natanya


 
We are loving having excellent food in the fridge! When I got home I was starving so it was a welcome sight!!
