Give a Chef for the Holidays

This holiday season

There was once a popular advertising slogan that began, "Nothing says lovin' like something from the oven" ... but nowhere did it mention who had to do the actual cooking. This year it occurred to us that our readers might like to give (or receive) food gifts for the holidays whether or not they had time to spend in the kitchen. So we've generated a list of 10 area chefs you can gift. We've found everything from personal chefs who will design a meal plan for your family and cook it in your kitchen to chefs who will teach cooking classes for you and your friends, plus dinner-delivery services and supper clubs. Just imagine how welcome any of them will be under the Christmas tree!
