from our cookbook

at freight house, it is our great pleasure to feed you and yours when you visit. seeing lively conversation and laughter in our dining room from patrons sharing our dishes and drinks truly solidifies what we are all about.

we also want to be a part of that joy, even when you’re not dining with us. for that reason, we decided to put out some of our favorite (and fairly manageable) recipes for you to try out during your next family meal, or any occasion for that matter.

if you end up snapping some pics for your preferred social media platform, be sure to add the hashtag #freighthousefamilymeal so we can follow along and see how y’all roll.
