Relish Fine Foods will hold a two-day grand opening event on July 11-12, 2011 and will donate 10 percent of all sales to Recipe for Success. Located at 3951 San Felipe Street in Houston's River Oaks neighborhood, Relish serves high-quality, homemade foods and offers a variety of hand-selected artisanal products. Houston-based Recipe for Success Foundation is the nation's largest outreach to lead the way in hands-on nutrition education to prevent childhood obesity and encourage long term health.

"We're thrilled to partner with Recipe for Success," says Relish proprietor Addie D'Agostino. "Their dedication to changing the way our children understand, appreciate and eat food complements our philosophy of providing delicious, uncomplicated food made from quality ingredients."

"We couldn't be more excited about Relish providing high-quality regional produce and small batch prepared foods to busy Houstonians," says Gracie Cavnar, Founder/CEO of Recipe for Success Foundation. "The best meals are made from food picked close to its source and touched with the lightest human hand. Freshly made dishes featuring seasonal fruits and vegetables are as good as it gets."

D'Agostino and head chef Dustin Teague developed lunch and dinner menus of simple, wholesome food for take-out. A daily lunch menu is available from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Savory sandwiches feature local artisan breads from Slow Dough Bread Co., meats prepared and smoked in-house and homemade condiments. Freshly prepared signature salads, market sides, seasonal soups and weekly entrée specials are perfect for quick snacks or easy dinners. Based on seasonality, dinner specials are offered in limited quantities and can be pre-ordered for pickup. Scrumptious macaroons, cookies, brownies and seasonal pies are crafted by pastry chef Julie Hewitt, praised by top chefs and critics. Beverages include fresh-squeezed lemonade and seasonal juices, brewed iced tea, assorted hot teas, and a unique blend of Katz coffee. Working with local coffee connoisseurs David Buehrer and Ecky Prabanto, Relish is also one of a select few retailers serving products from Greenway Coffee and Tea.
