What You'll Get
Outsourcing dinner preparation to a professional chef is a more romantic gesture than outsourcing your date for a less chatty substitute. Demonstrate your devotion with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a date-night dinner prepared by a personal chef from Just in Thyme Personal Chef Services (a $400 value). This Groupon is valid for the chef’s services and does not include groceries. The cost of groceries varies depending upon ingredients, and averages $100 for a four-course meal.
Chef Valerie Lamey deftly prepares customized dishes from top to bottom, handling all grocery shopping, cooking, and cleanup with her own supplies to set the scene for a convenient and romantic night in. Once diners schedule their date-night dinner, Chef Valerie will consult with them about their menu of choice, using specific ingredients, spices, or heirloom spatulas—and making note of special dietary, allergy, or medical needs—to craft a four-course feast for any occasion. A completely customized menu can include any proteins or dishes you desire, with past client favorites including crab cakes with citrus beurre blanc over roasted-corn salsa, filet mignon with a creamy gorgonzola dolce, and a molten-chocolate-lava cake with vanilla ice cream and raspberries coulis. Chef Valerie has experience cooking in a breadth of styles, including French, Italian, Indian, Thai, and more.
With all of the food prep and cleanup in the hands of a skilled professional, couples can dedicate the rest of their evening to contented sighs and refolding favorite love letters into anatomically correct origami dinosaurs. Though not included with today’s Groupon, couples desirous of relaxation can choose to add a 60-minute massage ($90 for 1 person, $160 for a couple) to the evening’s festivities.
