Q: What should I expect from a session?
A: You can expect an awesome time, the chance to meet some neighbours, and the satisfaction of knowing you are going to be whipping up some amazing food at home!
For your session, you will need to bring a cooler or insulated bag to store your meals in. You come in for your session and will be given a "how to" tutorial and a run down of how the set up works. We will happily go through some house keeping items and then set you loose to your meal assembly! We are always just a few steps away if you have any questions.
Q: So...is this like a health food restaurant?
A: When possible we "clean up" the traditional recipes to include more nutrient dense ingredients (think quinoa instead of bleached white rice or swapping a lesser amount of a stronger cheese in a recipe that calls for a lot of a milder one) We also aim to truly keep our meals clean whenever we can. This means all rubs, seasoning, marinades and sauces are made in house from scratch and from the most base ingredients whenever possible. This reduces the need for added preservatives and salt as we small batch fresh based on your meals each week. It is our goal to live by the motto to "Be the change you want to see in the world" and that means collectively demanding better quality food free of GMO's, added preservatives and other cr@p. We will also every effort to provide organic ingredients where ever we can and still keep cost competitive.

Q: What if I have to work around dietary restrictions/intolerances?
A: Great question! Because we offer many meal choices using all kinds of ingredients, we can never be allergen free, however, we offer the ability to swap out or eliminate components in your meal to better suit you. We will happily substitute free of charge: almond or soy milk for dairy, butter for olive oil, gluten free pasta for standard pasta. We can also sub vegan cheese for dairy and WOW Butter for peanut butter for a minimal additional charge.
