A team of scientists spent the past decade comparing "Things that are named Nova"; three of those years were dedicated to creating this chart illustrating their findings:Although the final category is left blank, it's impossible for Chevy Nova to win after its Mexican marketing debacle: the name nova literally translates to "doesn't go" in Spanish. Until Nova Personal Chef extends its delivery service another 1,000 miles south, we can't grant the gourmet-meal-maker a definitive win.
Today’s Groupon is for one week of delicious dinners-for-two prepared and delivered to your door by Nova Personal Chef for only $79 (normally $135). NPC delivers fully cooked, vacuum-sealed meals to hungry people in DC and the surrounding suburbs (within a 30-mile radius). All you have to do is place your order and patiently wait for the secret knock (three firm fist pounds followed by 15 seconds of frantic scratching). Nova's great for time-pressed DCers who want a tasty, hassle-free meal every night of the week.
If you live with someone, you can split the cost of this Groupon and you'll each get five dinners. Or if you live alone, Nova will deliver you lunch and dinner each day for five days (both meals delivered at once). NPC can customize meals to fit any food preference: kosher, modified kosher, vegetarian, drenched-in-BBQ-sauce, etc. Tasty offerings include bourbon-peach-glazed salmon with roasted red potatoes and fresh, locally grown vegetables; lamb kabobs served with a cucumber salad and pita; and melt-in-your-mouth red-wine-braised beef with onions and carrots served with a healthy heap of mashed potatoes.

With your sizable Groupon discount, one week's worth of dinner works out to less than $8 per meal. Don't miss out on a week of delicious delivered meals by Nova Personal Chef.
- “I've been using novapersonalchef [sic], Zan Dial for about 2 months now and it just keeps getting better and better! he took the time to learn my likes and dislikes and creates a weekly menu that is both familiar and challenges me to try something new. I've yet to be disappointed! As a Federal employee I have little time to shop for groceries let alone cook them. Zan brings my dinner to me once a week and all I have to do is boil water, in about 20 minutes we're eating a fantastic meal.” – Tammy V., Yelp

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.
