Allison Schaaf shares her experience testing recipes from Prep Dish meal plans.
In Episode 188, Prep Dish founder Allison Shaaf shares a brief history of Prep Dish and her behind the scenes experience in the Prep Dish test kitchen. Allison discusses some of her most noteworthy takeaways from testing recipes in the kitchen.
Allison’s biggest takeaways from testing meal plan recipes include
- Accountability: the meal plan editor relies on Allison’s feedback from the meals she’s editing each week to optimize recipe success. From a customer’s viewpoint, there’s also accountability on a financial and time investment with the Prep Dish menus.
- Expanding her family’s meal experience and flavor palate. Being part of the Prep Dish test kitchen process gives Allison’s family something new to try and the opportunity to stick to the original recipe without incorporating substitutions. They have experienced many new flavors and pleasant surprises among some new family-approved recipes.
- Opportunities to delegate the food shopping and preparation. Being in the test kitchen really helps Allison think like a Prep Dish customer instead of solely wearing the home chef’s hat. Delegating food shopping, food preparation, and dish day serving instructions allows everyone in her family to participate in the family’s meal prep process.
