Creating a meal from scratch is both challenging and delicious, much like playing "Stairway to Heaven" on a clarinet made out of a candy cane. Master meal melding with this Groupon.

Chef William or Sous Chef "Eagle," travels to homes for three- to four-hour demonstration events. The chef brings his own equipment and ingredients to prepare a 100% gluten-free four-course meal from a choice of two or three menus, molded around your dietary restrictions, dish requests, and desired level of elegance. Guests can join in as the chef works and pick up culinary pointers, or kick back as he prepares and serves the dishes.
This Groupon does not include the cost of groceries, which averages about $20-$25 a person, but can vary greatly depending on the customized menu.
Beau K Catering & Personal Chef Services
As a child, William Blackburn aptly deemed his mother the "best cook on the block." He and his sister, Kitty, enthusiastically devoured her homemade herb-crusted salmon and rhubarb pies and similarly internalized their mother's passion for quality food. After graduating from culinary school in Chicago and spending time as a competitive biker and fitness instructor, Chef William debuted Beau K Catering & Personal Chef Services in homage to Kitty, who passed away in 2008. But her spirit lives on in Chef William's endeavor, which encompasses everything from meal planning to grocery shopping and stocking pantries or personal bomb shelters with all necessary components for a specific recipe.
Though skilled in both gourmet and homestyle cooking, one of Chef William's specialties is prepping pre- and post-workout endurance meals for athletes, drawing on his own fitness expertise. He also shares his culinary knowledge during cooking classes and demos, and at in-home parties for adults and kids alike. Additionally, Chef William and his staff grace homesteads with carefully matched wines and hors d'oeuvres, or entire catered meals.
