What You'll Get
Sometimes there aren't enough hours in the day to cook, either because of daylight-saving time or time-gobbling time goblins. Squeeze out all the hours from your day rag with today's Groupon: for $47, you get three homemade family-size meals at Dinner Factory in St. Albert (a $95 value).
Stocked with locally sourced ingredients, Dinner Factory decorates dining-room tables with a rotating selection of creative meals custom assembled by each customer in its culinary workshop. After Dinner Factory's prep team chops and minces its preordained grocery list into celebratory confetti shreds, household heads can flock to its community kitchen to fashion a family feast in around 30 minutes from a monthly menu of 14 entree options serving four to six portions each. Customers equipped with detailed station instructions enlist hormone-free meat and poultry from farms within 100 miles to anchor their meal creations, such as coconut crusted chicken with rice and snap peas or the summer-favourite Hawaiian teriyaki chicken burgers. Customers can also fill fridges and freezers with refined and healthful stovetop staples, such as seafood risotto, a collection of prawns, scallops, and crabmeat combined with a white wine stock, onion, saffron, crushed garlic, and rice. In addition to alleviating supper anxiety, Dinner Factory also caters to healthful homes by allowing customers to leave out any undesired ingredients from each recipe, and includes gluten-free alternatives and whole-wheat bread and pasta.
Dinner Factory's kitchen mavens assign each entree ratings on a scale of one to three based on at-home cooking effort, assembly time, and kid favourites, enabling clients to customize a menu conducive to limited kitchens and toddler potlucks. In order to accommodate smaller tribes, customers can split their prepared meals in half to yield twice as many smaller platters. Dinner Factory can also do the assembling and deliver its prix fixe sensations for additional fees.
