Pro Chefs. Your Kitchen.

Kitchensurfing brings the chefs to your kitchen

The home-field advantage - any bookie or stats geeks will tell you it's a real, even if they can't tell you why. Somehow home turf just makes everything easier - it's true of a playoff game or a dinner party.

Gowanus-based startup Kitchensurfing brings talented local chefs onto your turf (more specifically your kitchen), where they'll whip up anything from a quiet dinner to a wedding party. The platform includes more than 225 chefs in New York and Berlin (home to two of Kitchensurfing's co-founders) and rates range from $20 to $250 per hour.

The founders recognized it could also be a creative outlet, in addition to extra income, for chefs. "Unless you're an executive chef at your own restaurant, you're cooking in somebody else's kitchen - you're not getting a chance to be creative and cook your own food," co-founder and CEO Chris Muscarella has said.

Seven Kitchensurfing employees work out of a stunning town house in Gowanus, featuring a full kitchen, tasting table, nap room, showers, a gym, and sun deck. (If you want to see more of the space, check out great photos from Pixel Trade.)

The company is hiring a full stack developer and a photography intern. Get the details here.

Now go forth (and feel the noise).
