Eating In, The New Eating Out
A new dining fad appears to be coming to Britain.
Those with money to spend and a nice kitchen, but with no time or energy to cook, can now hire in top name chefs to do the work for them.
Jamie Oliver is the latest "name" to get on the "hire a chef" for home dining bandwagon. Although he is unlikely to ever turn up to your house himself, for a fee of around £80 per head, one of his chefs from his restaurant Fifteen will come and do the cooking for you.
"Fifteen to You" will offer such dishes as scallop crudo cured in lime.
Personally speaking, half the fun of dining is going out and enjoying the ambience of a restaurant.
When we invite friends round for dinner, we enjoy doing the cooking ourselves; to hire chefs in, just seems plain rude and lazy.
