The Sunday Dinner Experience:

An Italian Cooking Subscription Box

Bring Back Family Dinnertime with Simple, Authentic Meals

Do you ever feel like all you do is run from one activity and obligation to the next? What happened to quality family time around the dinner table? In our fast-paced world, slowing down to enjoy one another’s company and a home-cooked meal is rare.

 

That’s why I am on a mission to revive Sunday Dinner! In my quest to help folks gather ‘round the table more often, I created The Sunday Dinner Experience, a 3-month cooking subscription box. Make cooking a fun-filled family activity once more, then taste an authentic Italian meal using Melly’s Meatball Mix (good for so much more than meatballs!) and simple ingredients. 

 

While we like Sunday, you can choose the family dinner day that works best for you. After all, any time spent with loved ones is time well spent.

THE DINNERS

 

Each month, you will receive a box containing recipes, pasta, a wine pairing, and inspiration from a different region of Italy. Don’t worry too much about your cooking skills—each meal was developed with busy families in mind, so they’re simple enough for chefs of all levels to make.

 

Get ready for your foray into traditional homemade Italian food with some of my very own family recipes!

 

Please note: For a fully gluten-free (GF) meal, simply select your preference at checkout to receive GF meatball mix and pasta.

The Italian coastal region of Campania is ripe with fine seafood and buffalo mozzarella cheese. Then there’s Naples, home to fantastic pizza and perfectly-cooked spaghetti.
