What You'll Get
Having a meal prepared for you prevents common cooking disasters such as weeping violently over onions or igniting aprons made of out firecrackers. Keep flammables out of the kitchen with today's Groupon: for $175, you get a three-course dinner for two prepared in your home from Cooking For You! (a $375 value). This Groupon covers travel within a 30-mile radius of Spring; extra charges apply for farther destinations.
Cooking For You!'s chef Jackie Alejo prepares artful meals for gastronomes in their homes, providing everything necessary for an effortless edible adventure. In the restaurant business for more than 30 years, chef Jackie was trained and certified by the American Personal & Private Chef Association, obtaining the skills necessary for preparing meals for diners to enjoy in the comfort of their own beanbag chairs and hammocks.
Using fresh ingredients, she constructs appetizers, entrees, and desserts chosen from a set prix fixe menu with her own equipment. Sink incisors into selections such as chilled asparagus and gingered-grapefruit salad, flank-steak pinwheels stuffed with spinach and roasted red pepper alongside Cancun lobster tails, and a mini baked Alaska drizzled with blackberry coulis for dessert. Chef Jackie supplies all compulsory accouterments, and table settings and napkin sculptures of Richard Nixon are available upon special request.
