Bon appetit!
Welcome to Chez Marche FoodWorks.

Here at FoodWorks we specialize in sourcing the best in local food and bringing it to you. A subscription with us ensures that the most wonderful foods being produced in Central Wisconsin will land in your kitchen once a month.

Each month's basket includes not only the great foods available (hopefully), to you at the farm market or directly from local farms, but also features sauces and other accompaniments specially selected to enhance the season's bounty. And each collection includes helpful recipes selected from traditional world cuisines, featuring the ingredients in that month's basket.

Choose from four models: Carnivore, Vegetarian, Epicurian, and Casserole.  (And yes, you may mix and match. Just let us know what you have in mind.)



Carnivore:
Cuts of local grassfed beef, pork, rabbit, chicken, goat, lamb and duck, and Lake Superior fish, with accompaniments and recipes.* (Or, if you'd rather, we can just bring you a selection of meat without any sides. See below for details.) Our suppliers are either certified organic or employ organic methods. Many raise heritage breed animals, ensuring that valuable biological diversity is preserved. See below for a full list of the farms we buy from.

For example, a typical box might include:
  • 2 lbs. lamb chops
  • four chicken breasts
  • One 3-lb (approximately) beef roast

Vegetarian:
This basket is intended to help us eat locally even when the farm market is gone, or grown sparse. Basically, we fill big freezers so you that don't have to. Our farm suppliers are either certified organic or employ organic methods. Many raise heirloom varieties, ensuring that valuable biological diversity is preserved. See below for a full list of our partner farms.

For example, a single basket may include all of the following:
  • 1/4 lb of dried shiitakes 
  • 1 lb dried locally grown heirloom variety beans or legumes (pinto, black turtle, cannellini, french green lentils, etc.)
  • 3 quarts of canned tomatoes
  • 1 pint of tomato sauce with herbs
  • 1 pint pickled asparagus
  • 1 qt. frozen broccoli
  • 3 qts. frozen green beans
  • 1 pint frozen chopped bell peppers
  • 2 quarts of frozen corn
  • 1 quart ratatouille
  • 2 pints of frozen greens (spinach, chard, kale, escarole, endive, etc.)
  • 1 half-pint of assorted pestos (frozen)
  • 1 quart of Brandywine bloody mary mix
  • 2 pints of canned or frozen berries
  • 1/2 lb Wisconsin wild rice
  • plus serving suggestions and recipes with sourcing information.

It might include some honey, or maple syrup, pickled brussel sprouts, or sauerkraut, or a pot of fresh herbs for your kitchen window, or popcorn, or cornmeal, or flour ... you get the idea... but primarily it's meant to provide you with locally grown vegetables that were preserved in season.  

Epicurian: 
The Epicurian includes a coordinated mix of any of the above, plus specialty items.

For instance, your basket may include:
  • Two ribeye steaks
  • Four marinated chicken breasts
  • 2 lbs Lake Superior whitefish
  • 1 qt of frozen green beans
  • 1 qt. blanched and frozen broccoli
  • 2 pints frozen greens (spinach, escarole, kale, swiss chard, etc.)

  • 1 qt canned fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 pint frozen berries
  • 1 pint wildflower honey
  • Goat cheese or cave-aged cheddar
  • 1/2 pound of Wisconsin wild rice
  • 1 qt. Brandywine bloody mary mix or tomato juice
  • plus serving suggestions and recipes with sourcing information.

Casserole:
The Casserole subscription includes four casseroles, each with at least four hearty servings, and two dozen cookies or four small cakes or dessert breads.

The casseroles arrive frozen, either par-cooked or fully cooked and ready to reheat, in covered foil pans. So they're ready for you to pop into the oven whenever you need an easy, but wholesome and locally sourced dinner. Cookies and cakes are frozen, and can simply be thawed at room temperature. Cooking directions are included. You may substitute frozen vegetable sides for dessert if you'd rather.

Casseroles we've served in the past include:
  • Tex Mex Creamy Cheesy Ancho Chicken with brown rice
  • Lasagna with spinach, ground beef and four cheeses
  • Beef and mushroom strogonof

We want you to be happy with whichever subscription you choose, and can accommodate most taste preferences (no pork? no mushrooms? no broccoli? no problem), but we are unable to ensure the safety of anyone with food allergies. Our facility processes nuts, soy, gluten flours, fish, and other known and unknown allergens. 

Subscriptions to the Carnivore, the Nose to Tail, and the Casserole are available to new members starting in May, 2014. Subscriptions to the Epicurian begin in June. Subscriptions to the Vegetarian begin in July. Priority placement will be given to current subscribers, and after that it's first come, first served. You may lock in your subscription at any time with your payment. (See details below.)

Please note that we employ the CSA subscription model.  This ensures that we and the farmers that we buy from have a base income that we can depend on. It also allows us to plan our crops, herds and production in accord with demand and minimizes risk and waste. Your first installment payment covers our cost of investment in producing food for you, keeping our prices down below what you would pay otherwise, and providing better value to you. Subsequent payments cover ongoing expenses, transportation and delivery of goods, and provides us with our income.

If you subscribe, you'll be playing a valuable part in supporting local food systems, and you'll be eating some of the best food in the region. The terroir of Wisconsin is increasingly well recognized for its excellence and we feel very privileged to be able to work with such high quality product.

You may purchase either a four- or eight-month subscription, and you may pay all at once or in installments.  If you're able to pay the full amount all at once, we can offer you a discount.

(Tip:  If you want to be sure and lock in your subscription, an initial installment payment can count as a down payment. You may pay the first installment amount as a down payment to ensure your subscription, and then later, if you want to pay the complete balance before the subscription starts, you can still take advantage of the early [full] payment discount.)
