"As for "slaving over hot stoves cooking with fresh ingredients?", no way, cooking from fresh is not slaving, its easy with just a little practice In the time it takes to cook a frozen pie, you can make fresh. In my job, we make from scratch, food for 200+ a day. Pies, lasagne, casseroles, roasts etc, plus snack items like quiche, salad bar. Also puddings, cookies, cupcakes, all fresh daily. It is not hard, and once you go back to fresh, frozen is not even a close second, it's a completely different food group!!!"
Well good for you cooking all of this for 200 plus, people here are talking about cooking in their homes or self catering in holiday aparments.
