The Tiny Chef
A couple months ago GFL made mention of the Tiny Chef in a post about catering. I decided to check out her web site, http://www.thetinychef.biz, and thought she sounded fun and booked an evening of cooking and demonstration. At long last, last night came and we had such a great time. She arrived around 5:30 and didn't leave until almost midnight. I'm sure she could normally have been gone earlier but we were having so much fun that I know we slowed the process down. We laughed, ate, drank, cooked, watched, learned, and told stories.
Spinach Cannelloni with Tomoato Sauce (how much better is homemade pasta!!

Stuffed Zucchini Marche Style
I like to cook but I am totally an amateur so I was looking for tips, tricks, ideas, and confidence that "I can do this!" She certainly delivered all the above -- all with a laugh or smile. I highly recommend checking out her web site and giving her a try. By the time the evening was done, we had eaten better Italian than any local restaurant, learned how to do it ourselves, had a grand time, and had made a new friend in the process.
Thanks for the tip GFL.
Glad you enjoyed The Tiny Chef in Charlotte. Chef Susanne Dillingham is very knowledgeable about Italian cuisine, I think she trained there. Also a fine chef, a wonderful cook, an excellent teacher and a lovely lady.
That's great, Art! This is what CH is all about. Good information on good food being passed from one person to another. And hiring a personal chef to come into your home is not something you generally do on a whim - like go to a new resto. It's awesome that you heard from someone who had seen her in action first.
It sounds like a completely lovely evening. Glad it was everything you expected and maybe even more!
