Personal Chef for Private Party

cynalan | Sep 22, 2007 11:38 AM

My wife is turning 50 (excuse me, 39) this year and I want to throw her a special party. I am thinking of having a personal chef come to our house to prepare a meal for about 20 guests. As we enjoy cooking classes, I am hoping for something a bit more interactive than simply having a caterer do the event.

Has anyone had any experience with this type of evening? I searched the net under personal chef but typically pull up "prepare meals in your own home" type of websites, i.e. someone who comes in and prepares a week's worth of meal.

I am looking for a fine dining experience, where all of our needs are taken care of: cooking, serving, cleaning, etc.

We're in Burlington - any experience or recommendations? We attended a similar evening several years ago by Lenny Karmiol when he was with the Good Earth Cooking School out of Beamsville and it was fantastic. Cost was about $100 pp.

Anyway - that's the frame of reference. Any ideas or recommendations?
