Born in Tejas,raised in
Winston Salem.

It’s like Mexico and Texas had a baby and raised it in the South.

The head honcho, Claire Calvin, was born and raised in Houston, TX. The motherland of Tex-Mex. She then proceeded to live just about everywhere else, picking up different ingredients and ideas along the way. She’s combined her passion for food, creativity and eating and drinking delicious things to create a fun and eclectic place to eat and drink delicious things. After an overwhelming response to her first venture, Dinners On The Porch, an ingenious idea to deliver ready-to-heat meals to your actual porch, and voila, The Porch was born. Its official date of birth is 2014, but Claire had been cooking up the idea ever since she was kid, when she first understood that sharing good times and great meals is powerful way to deepen relationships. And Winston Salem’s taste buds have never looked back.

Bueno Appétit.
