Dinner A’Fare Opens First O.C. Location at Woodbury Town Center

Irvine, California, October 15, 2008 – The Dinner A’ Fare, a gourmet studio kitchen with meal prep stations, has opened at Woodbury Town Center in Irvine. The Dinner A’Fare offers the convenience of preparing a week to two weeks worth of delicious homemade meals in no time at all.

Each month, Dinner A’Fare offers a rotating menu of 15 unique recipes including beef, chicken, pork, fish, seafood and vegetarian dishes. During a session, customers assemble 12 homemade, ready-to-cook meals that serve 1 – 3 or 4 – 6 people. The selections include entrees such as Balsamic Honey Glazed Pork Chops, Coq au Vin, Italian Braciole Stuffed Flank Steak and more.

Dinner A’Fare offers all ingredients pre-measured and sliced. The recipes can be easily altered to eliminate ingredients for allergies or personal preference. The dishes are then taken home to freeze and cook at the customer’s convenience, based on simple cooking instructions provided by Dinner A’Fare.

“Everyone has a hectic schedule today,” said franchise owner Dave Haugh. “We are here to simplify the lives of our customers by saving them time of grocery shopping, prepping ingredients and cleaning up afterward.”

Prices of meal packages vary by number of dishes and how many people each dish serves. As an added service, the Dinner A’Fare Stand-in-Chef can prepare package meals for an additional fee of $35. Dinner A’Fare gift cards are also available.

Cooking sessions are available Monday through Friday at 1 p.m., with a stand-in chef also on hand. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, cooking sessions are available at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., and on Saturday, there is a 10 a.m. cooking session. Dinner A’Fare is closed on Sunday.
