Under: American,Desserts,Dinner,Gramercy

A few weekends ago, Ken and I had dinner with our friends (and neighbors), Molly and John. Molly and I scheduled a dinner with a chef from Kitchensurfing, which we thought would be fun and a good way to have dinner without hiring a babysitter for their baby.

I scheduled the dinner online (easy enough) and then finalized plans with the chef via email and text. The night of our dinner, the chef was supposed to arrive at 7:30. At 7:30, I texted him to make sure he found his way to the apartment and he texted back saying he was stuck in traffic but was almost at the apartment. We were having dinner at John and Molly’s and headed over because we thought the chef would be there soon. An hour later, he still hadn’t arrived (and we still hadn’t heard from him) so I texted him back. We were getting a little hungry (and antsy!). He finally arrived 20 minutes later…WITHOUT AN APOLOGY…and started “cooking”. He had prepared everything beforehand and ended up just plating things at their house – we started with the potato salad:


And then cracked open a can of GOYA BEANS and chopped an onion to serve with the steak:


He did prepare the steak at their place (and heated up the beans), but other than that, there was NO cooking whatsoever! The dessert was a chocolate tart that was pre-made. I also thought the beef was no better than what I’d make myself in my own kitchen! I was disappointed with how late the chef was and also disappointed with the lack of actual cooking once the chef arrived. I will definitely not be using them again – I thought that it was way too pricey for the service and food.
