Family friends came over for dinner this past Friday night, which normally, following a full day of work and shuttling the kids (in traffic!) to and from activities, would have sent me into a panic. But I was lucky enough to have found an amazing new service FRESH DISH - kind of an “Uber for chefs” which sent me Heidi, a lovely and talented woman, armed with fresh groceries who immediately took over my kitchen. She was in and out in 2 hours and left me a Summery, family style buffet that would have made Martha Stewart proud.
Three reasons I also loved the FRESH DISH experience and can’t wait to have it again. 1) It’s on demand – Fresh Dish has a network of culinary rock stars, so with only 24 hours notice, you can have a chef in your kitchen. Finally, I can have spontaneous dinners and not rely on takeout! 2) They feature weekly menus, including “signature recipe collections” from some of LA’s top chefs (including Dana Slatkin and Pamela Salzman) so you don’t have to think too much about what to order. 3) The best part – it was much more affordable than the other services out there. For about the same price as going out for dinner (or a lot less if you think about what we saved drinking our own wine!) we had great, homemade food and could relax for as long as we wanted around the table.
FRESH DISH is offering a great discount to Gurumommy readers (just mention Gurumommy and receive 50% off your first Fresh Dish chef visit to your house!). Try it for a weeknight dinner, a special event, an upcoming book club night, or have one of their chefs make you meals to heat and eat throughout the week. Oh, and it makes a great gift too!
