Chef Mike brings 20 years of international cooking experience into private kitchens for complete personal-chef services, from serving dinner parties to inviting fetes into the kitchen for hands-on cooking lessons. A personal chef handles the entire task of dinner for family dining or parties—shopping, firing up tasty suppers, serving guests, and scouring kitchens before retreating back into his magic lamp. Cooking lessons for two teach couples to simmer and sear delicious, romantic meals, and groups of four expand their culinary horizons as they sauté broccoli rabe and toss grilled-corn salsa. After the lesson, burgeoning cooks dine on their delicious meals while Chef Mike clears away discarded broccoli stalks with a miniature bulldozer.
An array of tier-one menu options lets hosts customize menus to match the culinary skills they want to master or to please the palates of party guests. An appetizing caprice of mozzarella, tomato, and balsamic vinaigrette warms up taste buds for pan-seared chicken breast and creamy polenta ladled with rosemary-garlic sauce. Sweet-toothed guests' attention wanders from political debates and rounds of "Row Your Boat" as they savor dishes of cinnamon-almond panna cottta with a salad of fresh berries. A certified culinarian, Chef Mike's recipe book crowds dishes from Italy, France, and Thailand together with gluten-free, vegan, and kosher recipes. Groupon holders can personalize their menu to accommodate food allergies or favorite ice-cream colors, though extra charges may apply.
