Henrietta, Who?

Henrietta, Who?

Henrietta, Who? Inspiration Behind Our Menu Items We’d be willing to bet that you’ve wondered once or twice how some of our menu items get their names, so we’re here to tell the story behind one of our most popular sandwiches. The Henrietta Grilled Chicken Panini is a crowd favorite, and how can it not be with its juicy grilled chicken, bacon jam, and bbq hickory Dijon sauce? What you probably don’t know, however, is that this sandwich is named after someone incredibly special to our owner, Gail Smith. Henrietta Bollock, or Aunt Hank as they called her, was an extraordinary member of Gail’s family. When it came time to begin brainstorming on the new menu, Gail and Chef Troy knew this sandwich needed to have its rightful place. But…

5 Ways Almost Home Can Make Your Holidays More Festive

Events, News
There is nothing like the finale of the Covered Bridge Festival to get us excited about the changing seasons and the fact that the holidays are right around the corner. The holidays can bring us joy, and some occasional stress in getting everything ready for family gatherings, office parties and friendly get-togethers. Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before we know it, and they often sneak up on even the most detailed of planners. While you may be out there enjoying the fabulous fall weather of late, we are already gearing up for the festivities. We’re not quite dreaming of a white Christmas just yet, we’re still recovering from the Cub’s loss in the playoffs. For now though, let’s get back to how Almost Home can help you plan for…

Wine Dinners. What to Expect

What is a Wine Dinner and Why Should You Attend? Each month, Almost Home puts on a Signature Wine Dinner; an evening full of fun and perfectly paired foods and wine selections. Often times, they have a theme or center on the time of year. These dinners truly are a great way to learn about wine, get downtown (or to other cool locations), and enjoy the company of friends. We’ve had Mardi Gras wine dinners, Valentine’s Day wine dinners, and even a wine dinner on Mike & Holly Martellaro's farm, which was such a hit that we’re having another one Thursday, September 14, 2017!
