This Week at Big City Chefs

May 19th, 2011

People always ask us what goes on behind the scenes at Big City Chefs: For whom are we cooking?  What are we making?  How do we find and hire chefs?  What kinds of fun parties are we doing at the moment?  When we have a free minute (which isn’t that often these days!), we like to let you into our world for a little taste.

We’re planning a bunch of parties at the moment, and we have numerous happenings this weekend, but I really love what one of our Chicago clients is doing with Chef Austin, our Alinea-recruit.  It’s always a big hit to add a live cooking demonstration to a dinner party, so that guests can interact with, and learn some professional tricks and techniques from a private chef.
