Dinner at Your Door

Gibbs Smith | August 15, 2008 | 176 pages

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. In Dinner at the Door, you get the information you need to set up your own dinner co-op, along with more than eighty recipes especially developed for co-op cooking. These dishes offer the perfect starting point for meals that can be made ahead of time, that travel well, and that won't dry out after drop-off. The Dinner at the Door takes your average weeknight dinner from a grind to gourmet. Formally trained in culinary arts, Andy Remeis has over nine years experience in the restaurant world and cooks with uncommon exuberance and a "try-anything" attitude. She has a strong commitment to providing healthy food for her family, and has organized and participated in dinner co-ops since 2001. Living in California during Alice Waters' influence, Diana Ellis served as managing chef of UC Davis' vegetarian line, where she elevated meal plan food into something marvelous. An energetic Junior High Science teacher and expert gardener, Diana feeds her dinner co-op families from her own vegetable garden, and has been in dinner co-ops since 1999. A writer, a cook, and a bit of an entertainer, Alex Davis started at PBS and NPR stations in Atlanta. Senior copywriter at a successful Northwest advertising agency, Alex develops marketing strategies and winning copy for companies such as HP and Albertson's markets. Her writing has been recognized by the national ADDY awards, and Alex's client work has appeared in Bon Appetit, People, Business Week, and Sunset. Her co-op has been running since 2003.
