Did Anyone Say Private Chef?

Ahhhh, living in the Bay Are truly has many many perks (not to mention the amazing weather and fresh air). There is also affordable private chef service who cooks amazing meal at the comfort of our home!!!

We want to entertain our friends, however, giving our busy schedule, the thought of planning, grocery shopping, prepping, cooking and cleaning was daunting. So we decided to give Kitchit a try. Oh boy, we are so happy how this turned out. It's truly the best thing since sliced bread!!

Before the event:
We went on Kitchit website and select the menu that suits our guests.
https://www.kitchit.com/menus

The day of the event:
We decorated our dinning table hoping to impress our guests.




We thought we prepare a cheese plate so our guests and us and enjoy sipping champagne and savoring each bite of the cheese.


We were completely stress free and were able to spend time with our guests instead of slaving away in the kitchen.

About 30 minutes befriend the chef arrive:
Got a text that the chef is on his way.

When the chef arrived all we had to do is show him our kitchen and where pots, plates and utensils are and then he takes over completely.

First course: 
LITTLE GEMS GREEK SALAD
sundried tomato, persian cucumber, pickled red onion, feta, kalamata olives, marjoram vinaigrette


Second course:
PAN SEARED LEMON CHICKEN
wheat berries, roasted red peppers, scallions, purple cauliflower, tahini, espelette, marjoram, mint, parsley


Third course:
BAKLAVA
pistachio, walnut, cinnamon, clove, honey, lemon, phyllo dough


We were so satiated by the end if the night and the beauty is the chef cleaned our kitchen and everything was spotless!!!


We can't wait to throw another Kitchit party!!!!
