After a long day of working from home, homeschooling the kids or doing those oh so necessary house chores, nothing says unwind like a hearty home-cooked meal. With so many of us not being able to eat out or passing up on takeout meals, Grace Foods is back with Executive Chef Shea Stewart to share with you a few recipes for some scrumptious and easy-to-make, at-home gourmet cuisine.

We want to ensure we share a recipe for every palate, and for the adults, a fine wine-pairing option, courtesy of Harbour Wines & Spirits. This week's menu picks include Grace Corned Beef Hash — the perfect one-pot meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Chef Stewart's Coconut Curry Chicken with Grace Butter Beans is packed with delicious sweet and savoury flavours with a hint of spice, a recipe inspired by Grace Ambassador Ding Dong.

Grace Sweet & Spicy Pork Chops with Coconut Jasmine Rice paired with Harbour Wines & Spirits Trivento TRIBU Pinot Noir 2012 will take you on a flavourful epicurean experience, and for those looking for something more traditional with a twist, the Grace Mackerel with Scotch Bonnet Lemon Butter Sauce is the perfect choice!
