Stockpile thrifty culinary knowhow with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a 12-month family menu-planning subscription, plus a digital copy of Chef Zan Dial’s cookbook, Zan Dial is Cheap and Easy in the Kitchen, from Nova Personal Chef (a $93.95 value).
Nova Personal Chef's owner and master foodsmith Zan Dial proliferates kitchen competency and thrifty at-home dining with easy-to-follow menu-planning subscriptions. Each month, Chef Zan composes a weekly grocery list and space-rock opera highlighting shops in the DC, Baltimore, and Richmond areas. These lists make note of the best food items on sale in each client’s area and pair them with seven family-size dinner recipes, with an emphasis on creating well-balanced meals. Chef Zan’s savory meal and mindful purchase plans average about $2 per person for a four-person family, unless it’s a family of st. bernards.
Nova Personal Chef
Nova Personal Chef reinterprets the meaning of personal chef. Of course, Executive Chef Zan Dial brings his culinary prowess directly to customers’ homes and parties, where he dishes out plates of fresh lasagna, shrimp tacos, pulled pork, and brunch favorites. But he also works to make clients better personal chefs for families and friends. During private, hands-on cooking lessons, students get acquainted with the kitchen without having to make awkward small talk with the oven while it heats up.
