Dinner Parties

Dinner Parties

In the world of fine dining, restaurants offer fantastic meals and libations. The only drawback may be the trip to the restaurant. In today's entertainment scene, people are taking advantage of another option.

Entertain in your home with a Personal Chef preparing a fabulous meal.

From an intimate dinner for two or a gathering of thirty, a Personal Chef can tailor each event for any specific occasion. When there are more guests, a buffet with all of the food prepared on site, may be another alternative.

The Chef is accomplished in wines and can match wines in your cellar to the meal or can help select wines for your special event.

It can be a very romantic evening with all of the dinner decisions made ahead of time. What a way to impress the special person in your life when you are going to propose marriage or if you just want the ultimate dining experience.

Business Dinners

Business meetings are also becoming more popular in ones home. Event planners in San Antonio, TX are suggesting Personal Chefs to prepare meals in their client's home rather than taking their guests to a busy place. The atmosphere is more relaxed in a home and the host is able to socialize and talk more freely with each guest. Business entertaining can incorporate a sense of warmth.

Going home again there is a longing for the past and simpler times. The invitation to ones home for dinner is an ultimate gift.

Take it one step further and have an attendant for serving the meal and cleaning, and the host has the evening to enjoy with the guests.

Chef Bill Waring has been preparing dinner parties for years and has noticed an increased interest in this type of entertaining. Since 9-11 people cherish friendships a little more and people want to express their friendships in a more personal way.

A Cost-Effective Business Solution

A Personal Chef is a little different from other meal services since all of the food is prepared from scratch in the client's home. Since the host will generally purchase the wine and other libations from a package store, the total cost of the evening is usually less costly than entertaining at a fine restaurant.

The menu will be planned several days in advance of the party so all of the ingredients can be ordered if they are not readily available. If wine is to be paired with each course, selections must be made ahead of time so all is ready.

Group Participation

Personal Chefs also can prepare an instructional dinner party. The guests are invited to help with preparation of the meal while enjoying a beverage of choice. As the first course is finished, the guests will take their place at the dinner table and the chef will finish and serve the meal.

Every Detail is Planned

On the day of the dinner party, the Chef begins early. There are recipes to be finalized and ingredients to be purchased. Since the Personal Chef will use all of his own equipment, all of the procedures must be reviewed in advance to be sure everything is ready for the cooking process.

Chef Waring will do a complete review of the facilities prior to the day of the party. The client may have limited facilities in the kitchen so planning ahead of time will be necessary so the Chef can bring any additional equipment.
