Our two workshop options allow you customize the perfect experience for you and your friends.
We will lead you and your friends through a fun evening of meal prep. You'll learn some new recipes as we assemble the meal packs as a group around your kitchen table or island. As the host, you curate your own menu from our more than 50 meal options. At the end of the workshop, each person takes home delicious Freezer Meal Packages for their family.

Becky Van Drunen, author of the hit cookbook 'Playlist Kitchen' will lead you and your friends through a fun and personally curated evening of music, dancing and meal prep. You'll learn some new recipes (and some sweet new moves) as we assemble the meal packs as a group around your kitchen table or island. As the host, you curate your own menu from our meal options and your own custom playlist. You'll also receive a free copy of the 'Playlist Kitchen Cookbook' as a gift for hosting. At the end of the workshop, each person takes home delicious Freezer Meal Packages for their family.

No shopping, no chopping, no prep and no mess. We bring everything needed for the workshop! (No refrigeration is required, but we need use of a sink and hot water.)

As a mother of two working full time, these meals have saved my family from countless preservative ridden and fast food options because life gets so busy!

She was amazingly prepared. Everything went smoothly and quickly and we'll be doing it again for sure. I'm also signed up now for a home delivery, and I can't wait! Thank you SO much, Becky! If you're on the fence at all, just book it. Do it! You won't regret it." - Andrea
