A chef in your pocket for any occasion. Have knives, will travel!

Hello and Welcome!!!
My name is Dallas Bono, and I am one of the Chefs of the Pocket Chefs; my partner is Chef Jeremy Hankins. Together we have about 35 years worth of collective experience in the restaurant business both in the front of the house and in the kitchen. I would like to welcome you to our blog. We are very exited about this opportunity to connect with the public, and have some interaction with you. In this blog we will be posting several recipes to try. Some that we use professionally, some that we might try at home for ourselves or our friends, or some tricks of the trade that might make your personal culinary journey a little easier. We will also tell stories of our experiences in the food business, as well as restaurant reviews for Athens, Atlanta, or other places we might visit along the way. We are very happy to hear about some of your successes in the kitchen as well. If you have a great recipe, e-mail it to us and we might post it on the blog, or a culinary success story or nightmare might be another fun addition. If you are opinionated about food and it's preparation we welcome the discourse, so definitely e-mail us your opinions.
Jeremy Hankins and Dallas Bono are chefs for hire. In a way you could say we are caterers, but our abilities are not limited to preparing mass quantities of food, loading it into a van, and sending it to whatever location it's supposed to go. We design a menu according to YOUR tastes, not ours. We will cook for a large party, or a simple romantic meal for two. If you are entertaining a boss, or prospective client and want to impress them with a delicious home cooked meal, but simply don't have the time, we'll cook it for you and escape unseen so you can take all the credit. We specialize in intimate dinner parties of 10 - 20 people, and serve a wonderful 7 course dinner, complete with entertainment if you like. Dallas Bono is an operatic tenor. He has sung in many of this country's premier opera houses as a leading tenor. We can sing opera, musical theater, and jazz. We even have a portable electric piano and can bring it and a fabulous pianist to provide soft dinner music while you dine. Jeremy and I are available for private cooking lessons, or public demonstrations.
