Kitchensurfing instead of ordering in….

As an investor in Kitchensurfing (or any business) it is exciting to watch the growth happening.  We got to experience the latest concept in dining from Kitchensurfing that I think it super smart particularly in urban areas.  Some people order in for delivery several times a week so what KS is doing is not changing consumer behavior.  What is it doing is providing better food and an elegancy to the service.

At 5pm I got on to the Kicksurfing site and booked a chef for dinner with the Uber app thru a partnership.  Chef Warren showed up in less than an hour and cooked up a fantastic meal.  I did not have to lift a finger.  The kitchen was spotless when he left.  He was also charming, available to talk if you wanted to or not, a true professional.

crotsiniWe began with a few crostinis.  Large slices of thinly grilled bread coated with olive oil and topped with lobster, beers, mint and ricotta.  Really good.  The other was charred broccoli rabe and ricotta.  The char gave it this nice smoky flavor.

saladFor dinner we had a big green salad filled with market goodies.

chickenInsanely delicious chicken with a sauce on the side filled with a mixture of fresh herbs, capers and olive oil.

dessertDessert was good too.  Fresh fruit, basil sabayon and biscotti crumbled over the top.

cookiesI loved the simplicity of the meal.  Chef Warren has made Kitchensurfing his job.  He spent years in some of the best kitchens around the country and was ready to get out of the kitchen but continue to do what he was passionate about and on his own time.  He understands how to have a party for 12 or a party for 100 and that is what makes him excellent.  Nice oatmeal cookie treats he brought out at the end.

Being able to just book a chef a the last minute for dinner vs hitting up the local Chinese delivery is pretty genius.  Even if you use Postmates or Seamless, the food is just not as good coming straight out of the oven or out of the pan.  Nice job Kitchensurfing!!  Looking forward to more new options.
