Personal Chef in Philadelphia

I want to hire a personal chef to make a romantic meal for friends for their wedding anniversary but am finding it almost impossible to find one. Does anyone have any good recs or can recommend somewhere to look? Thanks!


I'm not a fan of radishes, but last weekend they looked so pretty at the farmers' market I decided to give them another go. Unfortunately, I still don't really like them. Anyone have any suggestions on how to use them up? How do you eat radishes?

Turkey Leftovers

I am so pleased to have won a 17 pound turkey from seriouseats! This is going to be quite an adventure for me since the biggest bird I've ever roasted was about 12 pounds. We already have a turkey for the big day (heritage turkey - first time ever trying that) so I'm thinking I'll roast my seriouseats turkey on Friday and then make some mini turkey pot pies and maybe a soup out of the meat. I'll save the heritage turkey leftovers for some turkey sandwiches. What do you do with your turkey leftovers? Have any suggestions for my extra bird??

Thanksgiving Soups

This Thanksgiving I'm in charge of the soup course, but I am feeling sooo uninspired. The only recipe that has caught my eye is one on epicurious for Creamy Fennel & Potato soup. Anyone care to share their Thanksgiving soup recipes?

Christmas List: Cookbooks/Food Lit

I'm putting together my Christmas wish list on Amazon to share with my family. Besides a food cooking tools (new muffin pans, a 9" springform cake pan) I'm planning on adding a lot of cookbooks and food literature. On the list so far -

The Tenth Muse - Judith Jones
The Amateur Gourmet - Adam Roberts
Art of Simple Food - Alice Waters
The Lee Bros Southern Cookbook - Lee Brothers
Jamie's Dinners - Jamie Oliver

This list will keep growing but I'm curious what would be on your list.


I'd love to join a CSA and get a winter share. Anyone know of any that still have open registration in Manhattan - preferably east side? (live in Murray Hill). I've been googling but can't find any that are still open...Thx!

Cooking Mags

I'm thinking about subscribing to a second food magazine but don't know which one to get. Right now I have Gourmet (which I love). I guess I should put it right out there - I don't like Cook's Illustrated. Ok! Ok! Hate on me! I know it's great but I can't deal with the no pictures thing. What magazines do you subscribe to and why do you like them?

And if anyone mentions "Everyday Cooking with Ray-Ray", seriouseats & I are no longer friends.
