Chef James Bain of Epic Food Co. in Wilmington says he is on a mission to get family and friends back to the dinner table. His new online meal service, Epic at Home, allows customers to order family-style meals for pickup or delivery.

“With the hectic pace of our lives – work, travel, exercise, kids, friends – planning good meals is tough,” Bain said. “Epic at Home makes it simple to eat well at your home.”

It's an idea that Bain has been committed to for some time, offering a rotating selection of pre-packaged casseroles and salads since early 2017. He later launched Chicken and Greens, a take-out and delivery service specializing in organic roast chicken served with chef-made sauces, sides and salads. Bain said it was the popularity of these prepared meals that convinced him to start Epic at Home.
“Convenience is right up there with flavor,” Bain said. “With online ordering, people can get several meals for the week, supplement their grocery list, or stock the fridge for a stay at the beach.”
The new menu has been expanded to include individual meals plans, seasonal fresh and organic vegetables, sauces and salad dressings, appetizers and desserts from Sugar Island Bakery in Surf City.

Epic’s emphasis on health and energy includes food for all dietary requirements, Bain said.
“Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan or paleo, we’ve got it,” he said.
The menu also includes several modern takes on traditional Southern favorites such as creamy crab dip, gluten-free fried chicken, cheesy tomato pie and deviled eggs.
Orders must be placed 24 hours in advance of pickup or delivery and full details can be found on the Epic at Home page of Epic Food Co.'s website.
