Jonathon Sawyer Joins Mod Meals Family of Chefs


James Beard Award-winning chef Jonathon Sawyer of Greenhouse Tavern, Trentina and Noodlecat will be joining the Mod Meals team. Beginning April 4, Clevelanders will be able to enjoy the creative chef’s food without ever leaving home.

Mod Meals, the local “farm-to-doorstep” delivery service that launched in November, delivers restaurant-quality meals with a few clicks on a computer or smartphone. Local chefs like Karen Small, Eric Williams, Brian Okin and Ben Bebenroth prepare a variety of meals in their restaurant kitchens, which are then chilled and kept that way until they land on your doorstep. Heat and eat the meals immediately if you want, or hold them in the fridge until later: The food will be exactly the same.

Sawyer will be debuting the brand new Kids & Family section of the Mod Meals menu, which features kid-friendly dishes and family-style meals.

“Our partnership with Chef Sawyer is focused on fundamentally changing the way busy parents put food on their table,” explains Mod Meals CEO Bruce Teicher. “Right now every parent wants to provide fresh, wholesome food for the family, but the pressures of our busy, modern lives conspire against us at every turn, and we succumb to pizza and fast food. We’re going to make it easy for families to eat well and give parents the opportunity to be heroes.”

Items that customers can look forward to from Sawyer's kitchen include Grilled Ramen & Cheese, noodles in a cheddar and parmesan cheese mixture that are grilled, Classic Lasagna with cheese and Italian sausage, Veggie Lasagna, filled with locally sourced veggies, Whole Roasted Eggplant served with homemade marinara, and New England Clam Chowder, with plenty of clams, corn and potatoes.
