Can anyone recommend a local chef who would come to my home and prepare a special meal for a small group of friends? I have some old college friends who are coming to town next month to stay with me a few days and I thought that for one dinner it might be fun to have a meal prepared in my home rather than go out to a "destination" restaurant. I am not looking for a catered meal and I am not looking for a cooking lesson, although it would be great if we could all participate in the meal prep somehow, as part of the experience. I have a large, newly renovated kitchen and although it is not commercial grade, I think it would be adequate. If the chef could be a local "celebrity" chef, that would be icing on the cake.
Does anyone have personal experience organizing such a meal? Or maybe have a recommendation about how to go about it? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
