What do you get when you cross an architect and former professional food blogger who hates to cook, with an architect who loves to cook?

You get a food blog, of course.

Wikipedia describes DINE AND DASH as:

“The US phrase for a form of theft by fraud, in which a patron orders and consumes food and beverages from a restaurant or similar establishment with the intent not to pay.”

But this wouldn’t be much of a food blog if we were suggesting that you go eat in restaurants. And we certainly wouldn’t encourage anyone to commit a crime.

Instead, DINED AND DASHED is a play on words, a pun, a jeu de mots (I think that’s French).

With Dined and Dashed, our goal is to help you put a restaurant quality meal on your family table with as little time and effort as possible. And along the way, we will provide tips and resources to help you spend less time in the kitchen all while serving meals that taste like they took all day to prepare.
