In the mood for Italian but don’t have the time or the skills to get homemade Chicken Parmesan on the table in time? Welcome to Book of Cooks, the first online portal to link local chefs with hungry consumers. It’s the Craigslist of the culinary world and the Amazon for appetites.
Type in your area code and food preference and Book of Cooks will generate a list of local chefs that are willing and able to make that gourmet wish come true. The site features reviews and ratings on each registered chef’s profile and includes a brief bio of their experience and interests. A map of your area code pinpoints each chef’s location, making your homemade meal just a click away.
The site it still in its early stages, so beware of a few kinks. I’ll be curious to see whether Book of Cooks takes off and I’ll be monitoring the site with every hope of adding my name and culinary school credentials to the list in just a few short months.
