In a world of Hooters, Twin Peaks, and Tilted Kilt-style breastaurants, it's nice to know that ladies can get some classy culinary man candy thanks to Grey Tie Events. The new local chef-for-hire cooking-class service focuses on teaching culinary skills to party-goers with the added bonus of "witty banter" and sharp-dressed men. Take away the part where we have to do the cooking and you have yourself a deal.
Although Grey Tie's owner, Heidi Lee, aims to leave customers "perfectly pampered and utterly adored" through her man-chefs' "tantalizing dishes . . . chivalry, humor, and a little playful banter," we feel a cooking class seems equal amounts fun and work with little actual pampering. We'd prefer to just hire a cute chef to cook for us, without the work. Though the concept seems hokey, it's nice to see some equality going on in the foodie-ogling world, although we're still holding out for Amy Schumer's O'Nutters concept.
Classes through Grey Tie Events start at $75 per person. If you're interested in booking your own bit of man meat, you can find more information on the Grey Tie Events website or you can call 602-738-2665 for more information.
