My New Gig: The Kitchen Hotline
So last week I eluded to having a new gig. It is with a company that is now ready to go public (thus the reason for being so cryptic last week). The company is TheKitchenHotline.com and it is kind of like a virtual private chef service. With your membership you get access to custom made menus designed for the busy family on the go (including printable shopping lists), one-on-one communication with sommeliers, nutritionists and chefs and even menu consultations to help you cater your own events.
There are a number of ways to contact the experts at The Kitchen Holine – by e-mail, via live chat and even over the phone. Here’s a breakdown of what we offer:
Who We Are
The Kitchen Hotline is a consultation resource for the home cook to find answers to questions and problems pertaining to cooking, wine, etiquette, and nutrition with the goal of getting the whole family involved. Whether you are seeking to improve your cooking skills, learn more about wine, plan a healthy meal, or teach your children good table manners, you will find everything you need right here with The Kitchen Hotline.
What We Do
The most important goal of The Kitchen Hotline is to help members cook and eat at home with their families. In our busy lives it can be difficult to find the time and motivation to prepare and eat meals at home, but with the help of The Kitchen Hotline you can do just that! With professional Chefs, Sommeliers, Etiquette Experts, and Nutritionists available to share their knowledge and expertise with you, you can achieve anything – the family dinner can be a reality!
How We Do It
The Kitchen Hotline provides access to experienced Chefs, Sommeliers, Etiquette Experts, and Nutritionists who are live to talk you through any problem – magazines, cookbooks, and standard cooking websites can’t do that. The Kitchen Hotline was designed to provide a solution to any culinary or entertaining problem the moment you need it, regardless of a person’s level of knowledge or skills. Through the array of services provided by The Kitchen Hotline, all conveniently located in one place and through a single phone call, you will eat better, save time and money, and experience stress free and true joy while entertaining.
