Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

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

Welcome to co-op cooking, possibly the best idea since Pyrex with a lid. With dinner at your door, you'll see how to 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.

Dinner at Your Door provides information you need to set up your own dinner co-op, along with more than sixty recipes specially 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.

Dinner at Your Door takes your average weeknight dinner from a grind to gourmet.

Diana Ellis
Living in California during Alice Waters' influence, Diana Ellis served as managing chef of UC Davis's vegetarian line, where she elevated meal plans into something marvelous. An energetic junior high science teacher, expert gardener, and tandem mountain biker, Diana has launched and enjoyed dinner co-ops since 1999.

Alex Davis
A writer, a cook, and a bit of an entertainer, Alex Davis started at PBS and NPR stations in Atlanta. As a senior copywriter at a successful Northwest advertising agency, her client work has appeared in Bon Appetit, People, Business Week, and Sunset, and has been recognized by the ADDY awards. Her co-op has been running since 2003.

Andy Remeis
Formally trained in culinary arts, Andy Remeis cooks with uncommon exuberance and a "try-anything" attitude. Andy is deeply committed to providing healthy food for her family, though she's famous locally for baking stunning cakes that can rival the bride. Andy has organized and participated in dinner co-ops since 2001.

I think the concept of neighborhood co-op cooking is very "NOW". As a married woman in my thirties I sense a subtle change in the way people like me are beginning to view meal-time. We love the idea of providing delicious meals for our families while expressing our culinary creativity, but who has the time to do that everyday? After reading this book my husband and I are seriously considering this co-op model. The guidelines are very easy to follow and the book is written with a sense of fun. I especially like the authentic comments from people that are actually in co-ops. They give a man-on-the-ground perspective of what it feels like to participate in one.

The recipes are very fresh and modern and you can tell that they were chosen appropriately to get beginners to feel comfortable making and delivering the meals. GREAT BOOK. A MUST READ FOR ANYONE CONSIDERING STARTING A COOKING CO-OP!

You don't have to be in a dinner co-op to LOVE this cookbook. The photographs are beautiful and enticing - they make your mouth water. Some recipes are elegant and adventurous, and some are quick and simple. Most recipes feed around 12 people, and in my family that is leftovers for one day (and maybe a lunch or two). The recipes are also great for entertaining a crowd. All recipes call for wholesome, healthful and delicious ingredients. These author/chefs are very thoughtful about the art of creating a meal, and their sage advice throughout the book is as valuable as the recipes themselves. The "special ingredients" list has changed the way I stock my pantry. If you own this cookbook you WILL be a better cook (I mean chef!)

This book is a great roadmap to starting your own cooking co-op. What could be better than only having to cook 1-2 times a week. These dinners brought to your door would make you feel like you were eating out at a restaurant everynight of the week!

I'm in week 3 of my own neighborhood dinner co-op. Our group used this book to plan and coordinate the whole thing. Many of the recipes I've used so far (ginger-apple coleslaw; pesto with chicpeas and greens, and layered chicken verde) have come from the book. I've found it so helpful to have a guidebook that answers all of the questions that had kept me from getting in to a dinner co-op before.

The forms in the book are superhelpful and the photos are fabulous. If you are serious about starting or just want another fantastic cookbook to add to your collection, I highly recommend "Dinner at your Door."

I did not know about dinner co-ops until I met this book. A dinner co-op makes sense, and I'm not sure why anyone would want to cook any other way. The book and its recipes are very inspiring. They inspire me to cook and try new things, and to start my own dinner co-op with close friends. Even if you are not interested in a dinner co-op, this book is great for the wonderful recipes that are included. Check it out!!
