We develop our own recipes, testing and re-testing them in our own kitchens. Our families and our staff are our taste-testers, and they’re a tough bunch of critics! No recipe goes on the SupperWorks menu until it gets the Testers’ “stamp of approval.”
At SupperWorks, we “weed out” the time-consuming, less enjoyable aspects of cooking- like meal planning, frantic shopping trips, washing, peeling, chopping, the “after-work-what-should-we-have-for-dinner” dilemma, and most of the mess. We “add in” some music, camaraderie, helpful staff who clean up after you, the satisfaction of preparing delicious and nutritious meals, and the time to enjoy them with friends and family. We also provide you with complete yet very easy to follow cooking instructions, so there is no guess work when you cook your meals. We make it easy for busy people to eat well. That’s what makes us different.
Many of our customers love cooking! Our “foodies” tell us that they come to SupperWorks for lots of different reasons - they’re too busy to prepare quality meals every day, they’re stuck in a “food rut”, they want to try new recipes without investing in lots of new ingredients, they like it that we clean up after them, they enjoy our staff and our beautiful, clean kitchens, and because they have fun at SupperWorks!
You don’t need to bring containers, as each recipe either goes into Ziploc bags or foil containers. We’ll lend you an apron, but you should still wear clothes that wash easily. Spills happen! It helps to have a cooler or laundry basket to transport your meals home. We recommend coolers, particularly in hot weather or if you have a long drive.
Your SupperWorks meals will be assembled but uncooked. You cook them at home using our easy-to-follow instructions.
Yes, you can bring in one helper, aged 12 or older. For children aged 5-11 years, we offer special “Bring Your Child Sessions.” Please check your local on-line calendar for dates and times.
Please call us immediately! We would be happy to reschedule, or give you a full refund if you cancel at least 4 days in advance. With less than 4 days notice, we’ll already be purchasing your groceries so we can’t give you a refund, but we can prepare your entrées for you so that you can pick them up (additional fees apply).
We’ve pre-portioned the meats, but other than that, go ahead and double up the garlic, omit the onions, cut back on the salt, add an extra sprinkle of cheese. It’s your dinner, make it the way you and your family like it. Remember though, we’ve tested the recipes “as is” and can’t vouch for the results should you decide to triple the hot sauce!
You can assemble 12 recipes in about 2 hours, or 6 entrees in about an hour. It’s that fast because we’ve already done the grocery shopping, and the washing, chopping, grating, broth-making etc.
We’ll gladly prepare the meals for you to pick up or we can deliver them right to your door! (additional fees apply).
Our SupperWorks Sides, appetizers, and desserts are the perfectly easy accompaniment for your delicious SupperWorks entrées.
It’s so unfair when the host does all the shopping, prep, cooking, and clean-up while everyone else relaxes and has fun! That’s why we developed our Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Valentine’s and Summer BBQ Packages. With appetizers, main dishes, sides and dessert included, it’s never been so easy to serve a special, multi-course meal.
Our recipes are designed to cost either less than or the same as if you were to buy all of the ingredients at the grocery store. The cost of a SupperWorks session or pickup should directly reduce the cost of your monthly grocery bill, and that’s not counting all of the valuable time you save every month on meal preparation. Also, with SupperWorks, you eliminate food waste – no moldering ingredients left in your fridge, and no need to buy a whole bottle of an ingredient when you only need 1/4 tsp! In a customer survey, 88% of respondents said that, since using SupperWorks, their monthly food bill has either gone down or stayed the same.
We recommend defrosting in the fridge. Although individual appliances vary, our full-sized entrées generally take 1-2 days to thaw in the fridge. Half portions generally take one day. Remember to cook the entrées within 2 days of defrosting.
According to current food safety guidelines, the minimum internal cooking temperatures are as follows: Fish 158°F/70°C; Pork 160°F/71°C; Whole Poultry 180°F/82°C; Ground Poultry or Poultry Pieces 160°F/74°C; all other Ground Meats 160°F/71°C. A probe-style meat thermometer will easily give you these readings.
