I'm curious to get everyone's opinion about something. Let's say their was a service where a normal person could rent one of the Bay Area's best chefs to come and cook dinner for you and a group of your friends. For as little as $25 up to $300 a person, the chef would come to your home, buy the ingredients, cook and serve the meal and then clean up.
This service could be a really great alternative to dining out. It would allow a group to enjoy a high quality prepared meal in their own home. Also, it could sidestep some of the problems one encounters when going out to eat: long wait times, crowded noisy restaurants, bad service, over priced wine, etc. This service could also be a really great way to plan and participate in an unforgettable dinner party, the kind your friends would talk about forever.
What I'm curious to find out is if their are any factors, whatsoever, that would make someone not use this service in lue of dining out. Meaning, what are the tangible and intangible apprehensions that anyone has to allowing for and choosing this type of dining experience?
