Chef for a Day

Chef for a Day

An Unwitting Victim in our Kitchen

With the Food Network in everyone’s home now, learning about restaurants and restaurant kitchens seems to be all the rage. We’ve had so much curiosity from customers about what really happens behind the scenes, that we created our Chef for a Day program.

We have a unique Chef for a Day gift certificate that you can purchase for $100 as a memorable gift for that special someone in your life or even for yourself. This certificate entitles the recipient to work in our restaurant kitchen for a whole day, from open to close. It’s a great way to see exactly how we do what we do as well as to benefit from what we know.

On on One. You’ll be in the kitchen working with award-winning Chef Ed Matthews and his crew. We only have one guest chef per day, so you’ll have unlimited access to our staff.

Hone Your Skills. Rusty? Need a quick how-to on knife skills? How to skin fish? We’ll work with you to show you what we know.

Learn, Ask Questions. You’re right there with us and we’ll answer any questions you may have. Any subject is fair game: accounting, finance, front-of-house, purchasing, receiving, cooking, menu planning, wine pairings, pricing, food safety, personnel. Don’t ask us to dish on customers though!

Tailored to Your Needs. Before you arrive, you’ll discuss with Chef Ed what you want to learn from the experience and we’ll do our best to cover what you want to learn.

Free Food. We’ll feed you! Maybe, if you’re good enough, we’ll let you cook your own dinner!

E-mail or call us at 540-662-1455 to purchase your Chef for a Day certificate.
