Sam's Club launches Cooking Club How-To Series at select locations nationwide

Typically each of the cooking club members are going to make four or five recipes to serve 12.

Have you ever been frustrated by how much time cooking a whole week's worth of meals seems to to take? Do you ever wish that it was easier to put together wholesome family meals? With the help of a few friends, you can start your own cooking club and discover how to save time and money by sharing the cost, preparation and fun of making dinner for the family.

This weekend, Sam's Club is hosting a series of "how-to" demonstrations at select clubs nationwide to teach everyday chefs and friends how to gather, prepare and share a week's worth of delicious and nutritious meals for about $3 to $4 per serving.

The in-club Sam's Cooking Club events will feature customized recipes that attendees can sample, as well as a free cooking club handbook with tips, shopping lists and suggestions on serving and storage. The handbook also includes a week's worth of recipes featuring a variety of protein from shrimp, sirloin steak, chicken enchiladas to pork tenderloin all specifically configured for sharing.

Nicole Aloni, professional chef and creator of the Sam's Club Cooking Club, designed the process to be simple. "I have found the best way to do this is to prepare seven main courses and seven side dishes," said Aloni. "Typically each of the cooking club members are going to make four or five recipes to serve 12."

"It's a wonderful way to connect with your friends, and, for under a hundred dollars you've got a week's worth of meals for a family of four," continued Aloni. "You just can't beat that."

Nicole suggests rotating responsibilities - one week, have one cooking club member go shopping for the ingredients and necessary supplies, while the others meet to prepare the kitchen. Also, Nicole highly recommends sealing the finished meals via a food saver, rather than plastic bags or plastic containers.

"A food saver allows the meal to last much longer than other methods of wrapping," states Aloni.
