Organizing a dinner coop: Do you have advice?
Ever since I read a post by one of my fellow Culinate bloggers, who's written a book on dinner coops, Dinner at Your Door, I've been toying with the idea of trying to start a neighborhood group. But I'm shy about commitment (when it comes to other people relying on me to show up on time, that is). Unless my neighbor (cough, cough) starts one, I'm a little reluctant. Lori isn't though: she's ready to go! Can you help her with advice?
I really like to cook but not every night and I am not a big leftovers fan. I have been talking with a few of my friends about setting up a dinner swap once a week where we portion out the food for each family. At the moment we are mainly focusing on stews, soups and casseroles. Does anyone have any experience or suggestions with this? How do you handle special dietary restrictions, storage containers, etc.
