The Weeknight Party Girl got to throw the most amazing dinner party last week for a group of friends thanks to KitchenSurfing. The usual problem with a weeknight dinner party is cooking the actual dinner part. I’ve give you a few ideas here, here, here, here and here of things you can serve at a weeknight party that are simple and fabulous. But what if you could have a chef completely cater the dinner. And not in a “catering” way but in a truly special, unique, “there’s a chef in my kitchen” way.
That’s what Kitchen Surfing is – bringing the chef into your house. We chose Chef Ryan who’s ideas around local, organic, and simple were so similar to my own. The menu she sent over was ridiculously awesome and we went from there.
I wanted to put something fun on each plate. Since I had billed this as a “fancy-pants dinner party” it seemed like putting something completely the opposite of fancy pants was in order – in come grocery store chocolates. Who doesn’t love a Hershey’s kiss?
I am so enamored with Kitchen Surfing. The chefs are throughly vetted to be interesting and quality chefs who not only cook an incredible meal, but bring all of the ingredients, plate all of the food, and clean up ALL.OF.THE.DISHES. I think this is a great way to celebrate a weeknight with friends. But I think it’s an even better gift!
You can GIFT a chef! Think of the new parents who can’t get out of the house for a date night! Think of the birthdays you could celebrate! Valentine’s Day!
