Spiced Bamboo's personal chef guides groups through two-hour cooking classes that demonstrate how to prepare two customized courses step-by-step. Clients contact the epicurean educator to schedule a class and discuss the desired cuisine, which can include dishes from the chef's specialty menu or more personalized fare, such as a turducken filled with peanut butter. Foursomes can learn to sear scallops for a spinach salad drizzled with pomegranate vinaigrette and peppered with jicama, dried blueberries, and macadamia nuts, or explore meaty entrees such as the Vietnamese caramel pork with coconut-infused jasmine rice and spicy asparagus. Vegetarian-friendly options are also available, and, for an additional fee, culinary companions can transform gourmet menu items such as lobster into plates of creamy ravioli with sea-urchin sauce.

Acme Flood specializes in emergency repairs for homes damaged by floods and fires. The certified and insured staff follows federal EPA guidelines when they perform their services, which range from using thermal imaging cameras to scout for leaks, using Defend Air Drying systems to minimize the damage from a flood, and removing smoke and odors from fire-ravaged homes.
Inspections from United’s cadre of experienced technicians keep domestic climates even keeled and heating bills down. Experts first delve into the ducts, checking for breaks or clogging before examining the flue to ascertain proper alignment and evict squatting chimney sweeps. Inspections then turn to the heater, checking the flame and soot for signs that burners are out of whack. Techs check blower belts before finishing up the job by cleaning or replacing the furnace filter and cleansing the burner area of all lint and dust, preventing accidental fires and cutting off the food supply of basement-dwelling fire breathers.
