Girlfriends Kitchen

Quite possibly one of the best food/retail innovations in a long time. Thanks to a series of new franchises springing up across the country, you can now get a few friends together and prepare up to a week’s worth of meals – in someone else’s kitchen! Thanks to companies like My Girlfriends Kitchen, all the grunt work – like going to the grocery store, prepping your ingredients and cleaning up – is taken care of. Just show up, enjoy the company and cook up a storm – then head home, stock the freezer and relax: dinner’s taken care of for the rest of the week, and then some!

    Cooking Accomplished! has been a great find for myself and several of my friends. The concept is simple; you go online, pick the entrees you want and the date you want to assemble them. The difference between Cooking Accomplished! and several other businesses like this in Portland, is quality! The owner is a trained chef. They have a commercial kitchen where all the ingredients are prepped by Shelley and her staff. Many of my friends, prior to joining me for meal assembly sessions at Cooking Accomplished!, admitted to serving and eating frozen or pre-cooked meals several times a week and to dining out two or three times a week. We decided since we are worried about nutritional value and using quality local ingredients we would research meal assembly as a solution to reducing time spent shopping and preparing dinners with the goal of eating healthier. The only assemble-your-own meal company that we found in Portland, that had great selections, high quality local ingredients and prepped all their food in-house is CookingAccomplished! in Lake Oswego. Since I started preparing meals at CookingAccomplished! I’ve also signed up for a couple of great cooking classes. My son attended a kids class as well and he can’t wait until the next one. Shelley has done a fantastic job of creating a quality experience!
