App Alert: Kitchensurfing Places Fantastic Chefs Right in Your Kitchen

By: Lawrence Bonk

Are you all thumbs in the kitchen but still want to eat high quality cuisine in the comfort of your own home? You could head to the freezer section of your local grocery store, slap some parsley on top of whatever you nuke and call it a day. You could also, however, scour the Internet for a solution. It's 2013 and to quote a very wise old television commercial, "there's an app for that."

Introducing Kitchensurfing. This unique web service pairs up hungry homes with exquisite chefs and vice versa. Here's how it works. You browse the site, find a chef who cooks a type of cuisine you have a hankering for then hire them to come over your house. They'll cook for everyone there and, hopefully, won't leave your kitchen piled high with dirty dishes. Prices start at around $30 an hour, depending on the person. It's up to the particular chef to set their price and all of the money stuff is handled by the site. Pretty convenient.

On the other hand, if you are a chef who is looking for some extra work, the is a great resource to land you some new gigs. The only downside to this service? It's yet another reason not to ever leave the house.
