NEW YORK ( MainStreet) -- Want a fine-dining experience in your home, but don't have the time, effort or energy to attempt it, nor access to top chefs who'll swing by and whip it up?
All is not lost. TravelsinTaste looks to Kitchit, a website that connects members with the most talented and creative local chefs to craft individualized, full-service "bespoke" dining experiences in their homes. The site even helps plan the event, coordinating rentals and decor and emailing invitations.
