Dinner At Your Door

by Alex Davis, Andy Remeis, Diana Ellis, Deborah Hardee (Photographer)
 
We love to cook. But every night? No way! On the other hand, we don't want to eat out or have frozen pizza. On the nights we don't cook, we want something delicious-a balanced meal with quality ingredients. Come to think of it, what we really want are home-cooked meals made by somebody else and delivered!

Welcome to co-op cooking, possibly the best idea since Pyrex

Overview

We love to cook. But every night? No way! On the other hand, we don't want to eat out or have frozen pizza. On the nights we don't cook, we want something delicious-a balanced meal with quality ingredients. Come to think of it, what we really want are home-cooked meals made by somebody else and delivered!

Welcome to co-op cooking, possibly the best idea since Pyrex with a lid. With the plan set up by Dinner at the Door, you cook one fabulous dinner a week and have two or three equally sensational meals delivered to your door, hot and ready to eat. If you love to cook but the pressure of doing it every night gets you down, a dinner co-op is for you. Instead of slamming together three or four 30-minute dinners a week, you can take your time crafting one superb weeknight meal and enjoy receiving the other meals automatically.

Read an Excerpt

A dinner co-op is a geographically close circle of cooks who alternate preparing and delivering fresh, hot weeknight meals so you get more than you give. The goal is to feed three or four households with just a bit more effort than it takes to feed one-and to feed them well.

It's essentially a logistical trick to reduce your responsibility during the week without compromising the family dinner hour or the quality of the meals you serve.
