Cooking for couples is something I love to do, yeah it’s a business, and I am working it baby! The reasons I love working with people in love is because it is the real thing. Two people sharing an intimate time together, in their own home, or where ever it is that they call their own space for their getting to love each other. And with this crazy hectic world, are you kidding me? I do not want to work in a busy restaurant with the owner yelling at me, or the exec chef cussin at me. And for the love of God, I do not want to be in charge of anything or anybody in a restaurant. I call this baby sitting. So lovers, I’m yours if you hire me, and I’ll make it comforting for you both.
My style if you haven’t been following me? Wok style, Asian American Style, stuff I grew up with. You love Chinese food? Okay, let the Chinese food come to you. Haven’t tried Filipino food yet? You gotta try it, it’s great. Maybe you’ve tried Vietnamese or Thai? Filipino foods kinda sorta like that. But Filipino foods, encompasses more styles than those… When the Spaniards made themselves at home in the Philippines from 1521 to 1898, these islands close to China, Vietnam and Thailand was influenced by lots of different cooking styles. Okay I’m Filipino/American. No I wasn’t born in the Philippines, I was born on Maui, in America. And no I haven’t traveled across the international dateline yet… but hey, it’s the food we’re talking about. Hire me, I’ll do you and your lover good, I mean the food that is… it’s a different kind of threesome okay? I’m not freaky. Haha.
Alright, the dish on this blog post is Kung Pao Chicken, Chinese influenced wokking, dark chicken meat, marinated in dark soy sauce, sesame oil, sherry, rice wine vinegar, and sugar. Which is also the sauce. Raw cashews instead of peanuts, red hot chili peppers, garlic and garnished with scallions, served with Cal Rose medium grain white, awesome just for two. Oh of course, I got an appetizer arsenal, salad arsenal, soup arsenal, more entrees, and desserts. Wine too. Table settings too. I’m your chef, waiter, and bartender all in one. Hope to hear from you soon.
Aloha my friends, touching base with all of you. For you foodies looking for an In Home dining service, just call me, email me, message me. I’m on Twitter @ronsambrano; on Facebook, and Linked In. My specialties are Asian American comfort foods for you lovers out there who are tired of dining out, tired of driving, finding parking. Maybe you haven’t gone out much lately, and just tired of the same old restaurants out there. Well call me and we can do something comforting, complete with table for two, chairs, pertinent drinking glasses, flatware, all the table settings needed, plates, bowls everything you need not worry.
Here’s an idea, for two of you. You want beef? How about I make you a comforting beef stew, with roasted veggies. You want organic? I’ll shop for it. One of you is a diabetic? I’ll use ingredients for you so that it will be safe to eat. No I’m not a dietician, you tell me what you can eat, we’ll sign a waiver so that I’ll be free of any complications, I’ll shop for the stuff you need. Hypertension? Hey I know what it takes to eat for hypertension my family, all hypertension. So I can work with you, make your In Home Dining experience memorable.
Okay, you like beef, we can do a Chateaubriand with a wine sauce deglazed in the pan with all the juices from that awesome cut of beef. Maybe an Asian style beef dish, like an oven roasted Kabli Ribs Korean style with a Kalbi drizzle… all doable. We cans start off with a soup, or salad, or hey both why not? You’re my bosses, and I’ll cater to you boss. Hey I’m here to make you happy, I’m not into making people unhappy. I do the best I can. I’ll say it again. I do the best that I can. I’m not Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, or any one of those masters. I’m the Lovers’ Chef. I do small gigs, and I cater to your every need.
I offer other services too, you want just food shopping services? All good. I can do that also. Maybe you just need food prepped and stuck in your freezer for the week, again can do. Just recently, a woman wanted me to wrap some Korean dumplings for her (mandu), so I did. I went out shopped for her, got her the ingredients, got permission to do all the prep in her home (with someone of legal age in the house), signed a waiver, provide proof of ID on my end, and insurance, and off I went, spent a couple of hours, making her food as perfect as could be, placed about several dozen dumplings into Ziplock bags and stuck it in the freezer. And prepped her sauces for her dips. All doable folks. All doable. Call me. If you don’t have time to prep and you are a home chef yourself? Call me, let’s see if we can work something out.
Remember, life is too short. Enjoy it please. If you call me fine. If not, just have a good time, have a good life. Love your loved ones, and eat well. If you’ve used me before, and are hesitant to use me again because another chef was better maybe? It’s all good. All I can say is I’ll try my best to make your experience the best In Home Dining experience ever! And I mean that. Remember, my style is Asian American Comfort foods… I take pride in making your home smell like your mom or grandma is in the kitchen, hey it’s all good. That’s why I say, In Home, and when food is cooked in your home? It better smell good. Take care, all the blessings to you and your loved one(s). Until the next blog, I’m Chef Ron, hope to hear from you soon.
I will make your romantic dinner the best in home experience, complete with a table for two, table cloth, napkins, all pertinent glasses, saucers, plates and flatware. I’ll design that special meal for two. It can be a mid morning breakfast, lunch, late noon pupus with wine or your favorite drink. And of course a mid evening dinner complete with a musician and waiter.
Dinners can be adventurous, hot and spicy food Filipino Style or Korean Style. Appetizers like spicy pork lumpia or mandu with sauces that will break your mouth. And that’s good. And for the entrees, there is always two entrees for two or more.
