At the end of last year, we started a new cooking venture here at Kalee Kreations – Cook & Freeze Workshops.
Here’s how it works. We plan the meals, do all the shopping for ingredients and supplies, and do a little bit of pre-workshop food prep. All you do is register, show up, pay, do some food prep, a little cooking …and then assemble and package one breakfast dish, 8 main dishes and one dessert to take home and stash in your freezer! It’s a group effort to prep, cook and assemble the meals, so you may only work on part of the meals but go home with all.
Sound good? The workshops are 3 to 4 hours and you’ll go home with nine meals and one dessert to put in your freezer, cooking instructions and recipes for all. Each workshop is maxed out at 6 participants.
Workshops typically cost around $100. Price varies based on menu. More meat intensive workshops will be higher in cost. Looking ahead, we are hoping to do a grill-ready workshop and gluten-free workshop.
There is some flexibility with the choice of meals. You can pick up to 2 entrees to not make and then double up on up to 2 entrees. The meals you double up on will still be packaged separately so they are considered two meals.
Stay tuned to our Facebook page for upcoming workshops!
