The biggest event of any Chinese New Year's Eve is the dinner every family will have. But preparing New Year’s feast is really a pain for many people since it is tiring and costs a lot of time. Some people prefer to go to hotels, but they feel the atmosphere is not as warm as home.
This year, people can make a difference by hiring chefs from restaurants to cook a tasty New Year’s dinner at home. It is reported that there are several restaurants in Xiamen now providing such chef rental service for the family feast.
Customers who need this service only need to make a call to the restaurants and order the food and inform the number of people. The restaurants will provide all the ingredients and dinnerware. After people enjoy the feast, the restaurants will also send someone to clean the kitchen.
The minimum purchase of food is 800 yuan at ordinary times and 1200 yuan during Spring Festival. A 300 yuan service charge is required.
Though the chef rental service is welcomed in Xiamen, it can’t be popularized now as most of the restaurants don’t have so many chefs.
