Vegan Mushroom Bolognese Dinner Kit for 2-3

This kit provides you with everything you need to prepare a deliciously decadent Rigatoni Mushroom Bolognese that’s completely vegan! Also included are the components of a Little Gem lettuce salad for a side dish as well as crisp fennel pollen grissini breadsticks.

Chef Bryan Voltaggio is one of the most recognized and well-respected chefs in America these days, thanks in no small part to being named runner-up in three seasons of “Top Chef.” But he’s much more than just a celebrity chef: he trained under the renowned Charlie Palmer, and his fine dining restaurant, Volt, opened in 2008 and earned him a James Beard Award nomination for Best Chef Mid-Atlantic. During the coronavirus pandemic, Voltaggio decided to reinvent Volt to focus on simple, super-comforting dishes, and Thacher & Rye was born. At Thacher & Rye, located inside a stately old brownstone in his hometown of Frederick, Maryland, Voltaggio and his team are using simple, seasonal ingredients to craft a menu of familiar favorites prepared with the deft hand and skillful approach of a fine dining master.
