On the day of your event, your chef arrives at your home a bit early, with all the ingredients needed to prepare your meal. While your friends arrive, your chef finishes preparation.
Once you all sit down to the table, your chef begins service. For more casual get togethers, request family-style plating and ask your chef to chat a bit about each dish. For formal occasions, restaurant-style platting, a server, and a more buttoned-up table manner might be appropriate.
After dinner, your chef handles cleanup and only heads out once the dishes are in the dishwasher and your kitchen tools and surfaces are wiped down.
When you book a Kitchit Tonight dinner, your reservation is guaranteed as soon as you complete checkout. The day before your meal, a Kitchit Concierge will review our available chefs and match one to your event based on your chosen menu, location, reservation details, and your personal preferences. Then we'll introduce you to your chef, so you can communicate directly as needed.
If you'd prefer to work directly with a particular chef of your choosing, check out The Marketplace. There, you can contact chefs directly to create fully customized experiences.
Kitchit Tonight is designed to bring you an outstanding experience at an unbelievable price. It all starts with the menu. We develop our ever-changing collection of Kitchit Tonight menus in collaboration with chefs and local specialty vendors, focusing on high-quality seasonal ingedients. By creating these “prix-fixe” menus, we save on ingredient cost, and pass those savings on to you. Plus, we make it extra easy for chefs to execute Kitchit Tonight experiences, saving them time and reducing your bill even further.
And remember, with Kitchit, you're not paying for the overhead costs that drive up prices at traditional restaurants. You're only paying for what matters most—the food and the service.
Think of how you pay the bill at restaurants. For special, or formal occasions you might treat your guests. For casual get togethers with the regular gang, everyone probably pays their own share.
The same options exist on Kitchit! You can cover the bill on your own (how generous!), or use Kitchit invitations to gather payment info along with RSVPs. In that case each guest selects a number of seats, and pays in advance online.
Either way, no money needs to change hands on the day of your event. So your evening can transition seamlessly from the meal to after-dinner hanging out.
When you bring a talented local chef into your home, you cook up more than a great meal. You're cooking up a night to remember — filled with great company, great food, and lots of laughs.
Kitchit helps you spend quality time with your community in a way that's
soul-satisfying, delicious, and easy.
Kitchit chefs come from all sorts of culinary backgrounds. They are talented professionals, relying on Kitchit to connect with diners, hone their craft, and pursue their careers on their own terms.YOUR CHEF HANDLES EVERYTHING>
