Kathryn Holding:



In-Home Chef Dinner for 8

A dinner party for the books!  Raleigh Chef Jonathan Ballard will come to your home to prepare a meal for eight.  As 'hands on' or 'hands off' as you'd like!  Join him in the kitchen to learn about the ingredients and help prepare the meal, or stand back and allow Chef Ballard to do the legwork.  Wine/beer is included in the package.  

About Chef Ballard:  Chef Jonathan Ballard was raised locally in New Bern. He fondly recalls watching his mother spread her love and joy around the household through the meals that she passionately crafted during the holiday season. This inspired him to take up the chef’s apron and commit himself to the study of the culinary arts. He currently displays these arts through carefully and cunningly executed Middle Eastern dishes as Executive Chef at Sassool’s Mediterranean Café.  Previous experience includes Executive Head Chef at Saint Jacques French Cuisine.

Important Details: Must be scheduled on a mutually-agreeable date with Chef Ballard. Minor additional costs may be associated with food purchase.

Donated by:  Chef Jonathan Ballard, Julie and Stan Hardesty
