Yeah sure, foil dinners remind us of camping in the great outdoors, but they’re quite brilliant for a busy work week, prepped ahead of time for the kids, your beloved, or the dinner party for one. We were inspired to discover more about the nuances of the foil dinner after learning that Jamie Oliver and wife prepare them in their home (and we know that home churns out some delicious, creative, and healthy meals). Foil dinners can be fancy or quite simple, depending on the ingredients. They cook quickly either on the grill or in the oven, usually 20-30 minutes depending on the contents. But what we love best is to add fresh herbs (any kind will do!) to our foil packets and revel in the fresh herb essences willowing out of your unwrapped packet! It’s easy to get caught up in the shuffle of the work week, going for long stretches of time ignoring an empty belly and resorting to take out, but, with the ability to venture into the world of foil packet meals, you’ll be able to get everything you want done plus a warming, home-cooked meal in no time! So join us and you will discover the benefits and diverse effects of creating home foil packet meals, and enjoy some yourself when you come to this class!
