There is nothing quite so luxurious as enjoying a gourmet meal in the comfort of your own home. It's even better if you didn't have to make it! Host a private dinner party for up to 8 guests without even lifting a finger with this Personal Chef for an Evening experience.

Prior to your scheduled dinner, DC Metro based Chef Paul Kennedy, will contact you for an initial consultation. Together, you will go over the available meal options and discuss any food preferences and/or dietary concerns. After that, all you need to do is prepare your guest list because Chef Paul will take care of everything else!

On the day of your dinner party, Chef Paul will arrive at your home with a bundle of fresh, locally-sourced groceries and a hand-selected wine pairing for your meal. Once in the kitchen, he will get to work preparing your feast. You have the choice of either a 3 or 6-course meal for this event. And the best part of this whole arrangement? Chef Paul will leave your kitchen spick and span afterward!

Whether you are looking for an intimate evening with a loved one or a relaxing gathering of friends, Chef Paul Kennedy will make this an unforgettable evening of good food and even better memories!
