Put your kitchen through its paces with today's side deal: for $150, you get a three-course meal for two made fresh in your kitchen (a $300 value) by Sweet Melissa's Personal Chef Services. This Groupon covers homes within a 30-mile radius of San Francisco; extra charges apply to farther destinations.
Chef Melissa Furano is a Bay Area native and graduate of the California Culinary Academy who specializes in private chef duties for the discerning diner. Like a country doctor, she travels from home to home with a satchel of local, organic, and sustainable groceries, ready to prepare delectable and nutritious meals for immediate dishing up or packing away and re-heating at a later time. With today's Groupon laid out as a placemat, Chef Melissa will come to your home and prepare a meal for two, taking care of all necessary shopping, cooking, and clean-up.
A three-course meal for two is an ideal way to celebrate an anniversary, a birthday, or a particularly severe hunger pang. Stomach rumbling, you'll peruse a variety of pre-set menus; sample menus include entrees of fettuccini with veggies and pecorino Romano cheese, herb-crusted salmon on butternut-squash risotto and grilled asparagus, and desserts such as fruit cobblers, coconut crème brûlée, or profiteroles. Fare can be custom-tailored to suit dietary needs, including vegetarian varietals, diabetic diets, kosher kitchens, and more.
The kitchen has always been the beating heart of the home, from the first kitchen constructed of peat moss and bludgeoning devices, to the ultra-futuristic titanium insta-kitchens of Super Pluto. Take full advantage of this frequently neglected central organ with a visit from the friendly Chef Melissa.
