Valentine’s Day is swiftly approaching, spurring many of us to scour Long Island, NY and the local newspaper listings to find the perfect establishment in which to wine and dine our beloved. This can often be a stressful task, as you need to be certain that the restaurant you’ve chosen will be able to accommodate you on such a busy holiday. More importantly, will the food be good? Will the setting be romantic? There are many considerations that are easily overlooked and forgotten during the Valentine’s Day rush, and what you’ve intended to be a fantastic evening of fine dining can quickly turn to disappointment.
Other occasions are equally deserving of a fine celebratory meal, such as birthdays, anniversaries, or just because. Instead of going out to dine, why not treat yourself and your special someone to a custom gourmet meal prepared directly in your own home by a professional gourmet chef who will cater directly to your needs?
A custom gourmet dinner easily solves many of the problems inherent in dining out and allows you to share a uniquely romantic evening with your love without the typical hassles that accompany Valentine’s Day.
In the intimate privacy of your own home, you’ll be able to avoid venturing out into the cold weather, navigating through traffic, waiting for a table and dealing with crowded, noisy restaurants that spoil the mood, and paying exorbitant prices for food that is less than satisfying simply because it is Valentine’s Day. You’ll be able to relax and eat leisurely at your own pace, enjoying a gourmet meal prepared just the way you and your beloved desire it.
On Long Island, there are a few professional gourmet chefs that will perform such a task for a reasonable fee. One such chef is Chef Lia, a highly trained chef, home cooking consultant, and cooking instructor at the Viking Cooking School in Garden City, NY. Her love of food and her personal touch will ensure that your custom gourmet meal will be the very essence of perfection.
Chef Lia specializes in Italian food, but will cater to your own specific tastes based on your own preferences, dietary conditions, and desired quantities. Together, you will create a personalized menu for the evening, and then you can sit back and relax while your own personal chef does the rest.
The custom gourmet meals will be prepared in your own kitchen using top quality, fresh ingredients. The fee for the service includes the planning of the menu, grocery shopping, food prep and cooking, service, and cleanup. Any leftovers will be packaged securely to ensure freshness.

Typically, custom gourmet dinners must be booked several weeks in advance, especially for holidays, so be sure not to wait to set up your important date. Aside from Valentine’s Day and occasions such as anniversaries, personal chef services are also ideal for a night in which you wish to propose, or if you simply want to treat yourself and your beloved to a unique, romantic evening.
