SPECIAL DIET MEALS

He who distinguishes the true savor of his food can never be a glutton; he who does not cannot be otherwise.

ROMANTIC DINNERS

One cannot think well, love well, and sleep well, if one has not dined well.
-Virginia Woolf

Are you planning a proposal and want to create a memorable evening your bride-to-be will remember for a lifetime? Or perhaps you want to remind your special someone why you married them so many years ago. Even if you just want to feel pampered for the night, let me help make the evening spectacular.  I will develop a unique menu for your special evening, prepare and serve the meal and make sure that your evening will be a night to remember. 

I am also happy to work with you to plan those special touches that will make your evening one to remember for a lifetime.

DINNER PARTIES

We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink.  
-Epicurus

Make your next party one YOU enjoy as much as your guests. Let no name gourmet take all the stress out of your party, whether it€™s for four or fifty. 

Imagine its 5:00 on a Saturday afternoon. You€™ve just gotten home from the soccer and 2 T-ball games your kids had all day, and you have 25 people arriving for dinner in just about an hour. That€™s when you realize, the table is set, hors d€™oeuvres are ready to go, and the delicious smell of dinner in the oven is wafting in from your kitchen. All you need to do is take a quick shower, run a brush through your hair, and you€™re ready for a festive evening with friends and family. 

At the end of the night when the party is over and all of your guests have left, you find your kitchen spotless. Plates and glasses are washed and put away and you enjoyed yourself all night. Every little detail was taken care of and you were able to mingle with your guests and enjoy a stress free evening. That's when you realize€¦.this was the best party you have ever thrown. 

Some of the types of parties no name gourmet has done in the past:

  • Casual Buffet
  • Elegant Dinners
  • Tasting menus
  • Ladies luncheons
  • Theme dinners from around the world
  • Barbeque
  • Corporate parties

COOKING LESSONS

This recipe is certainly silly. It says to separate two eggs, but it doesn't say how far to separate them.
-Gracie Allen

Whatever your level of experience, no cooking skills, little experience, or you just want to learn a new type of cuisine, I love to teach the art of cooking. Whether you are a beginner and want to learn the basics, a beginner who wants to learn how to prepare that special someone€™s favorite meal, or an experienced cook who wants to focus on a specific discipline such as classic Italian or low-fat cooking, I will set the lesson plan, develop the recipes and menus and shop for your private lesson. 

Learn in the privacy of your own home, in your own kitchen 
Learn €œTricks of the Trade€ known only in the industry at your convenience vs. classes through cooking schools.

Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship. It is of great importance to the morale.

After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one's own relatives.
