This, gents, is why you learn to cook at least one dish that doesn't come out of a blue box - to avoid being ridiculed as a douchenozzle.

I'd rather cook the food myself and hire the restaurant to clean the dishes.

jtown: My takeaway from this is that they basically pair up hungry customers with people in the area who cook food in their home kitchens, then deliver it to the hungry customers.

I wouldn't want my food prepared by a stranger with no safety inspection or oversight. I'm amazed such a thing is allowed in the original

mythical Nanny State the Daily Mail wants us to believe exists.

In many areas Brits have more freedom and rights than Americans.

Wow. I really hope that none of my friends are the kind of asshole who would use a service like this.

Too tired to cook for guests? Two phone calls. One to say "listen, I had a long day and I don't feel like cooking. What would you like from the Chinese place?" and another to the Chinese place.

I'm doubtful that any home kitchen can be worse than some of the abominations I've seen in real restaurant kitchens. The stuff you see on Kitchen Nightmares and Restaurant Impossible isn't uncommon at all,


Actually, I'd think it would be much more clean. If someone is cooking in their own house, its the place they have to prepare meals for THEIR family too. And the clean-up isn't left to a $8/hour slacky at midnight.

I enjoy the actual cooking process far too much to pay extra for dirty dishes on top of a meal. If I'm cooking I'm usually cleaning up as I go, and my food is just as good as most restaurants.

LaraAmber: cyberspacedout: Isn't "professional chef" a bit redundant? When I order out, I'm certainly not expecting the food to be cooked by an amateur or intern.

Do you think the guy making your pizza at Papa John's went to a culinary school?


By definition somebody getting paid to perform a task is a professional in that field. So the dude at Papa Johns is a professional pizza chef. It doesn't me he is good at it, just that by definition it is his profession and thus he is a professional. That is pretty much all it takes to be declared a professional. Somebody taught you how to do something and you get paid to do it.

The teenager at the local fast food place is a professional fry cook.

The guy at home reading a cookbook is an amateur.
