Stress-free diner parties in your own home

Written by on May 19, 2013 in Food & Drink - Comments Off on Stress-free diner parties in your own home

One of my greatest pleasures in life is fine wining & dining. I love my regular romantic dinners in nice restaurants with James, but those endless nights of talking and dining with close friends in our own home is something that feeds both our mind and soul – and at the same time keeps our feet on the ground.

Luckily I discovered a partner in (culinary) crime: PretAChef, a new private dining service in London. Through their website you pick the type of food (also gluten free, vegetarian, vegan etc. available) and choose a chef. They do the shopping, the cooking, serving and cleaning of the kitchen. No more stress, no more mess. Prices start at GBP 20 per person. PretAChef also offers cooking classes or cooking for events. The possibilities are endless.
