Product Review: Dream Dinners

Meal assembly from a customer’s perspective.

Ever have those nights when you just don’t know what to cook? When you’re tired of the same ol’ same old and would rather not put that on your table again? How about the long days when you’re in no mood to chop, blend, simmer and stir for an hour before you have something edible?

On King Island in Tasmania, Australia, there’s an old boathouse that’s been converted into a rustic harborside restaurant where patrons cook their own meals. They leave behind money for the use of the building in an “honesty duck” — i.e., a box decorated with a toy duck.
