Professional Chef Services’ founder Tony Cacace and his team of mobile epicureans bestow valuable kitchen skills upon food novices in the comfort of their own homes. Three-hour cooking lessons gather groups of two or four around campfires preheated to 375 degrees, where a culinary mastermind covers the fundamentals of cooking-utensil use, chopping and slicing techniques, and the use of a turkey as a flotation device. Though students must supply their own oven and stove, chefs show up at the door with the full complement of ingredients and equipment required to prepare the lesson’s predetermined meal and tote along a well-matched bottle of red wine. Dietary restrictions and preferences are duly noted, with instructors adapting the syllabus to suit the needs of kosher, vegetarian, organic, or low-fat diets. Satiated students are left with a detailed kitchen-survival guide, a booklet of recipes, and email access to helpful chefs, who are happy to answer additional culinary queries or serve as a sounding board for potential rock-band names.
