For One Day Only, Uber Delivers Personal Chefs On-Demand

The startup car service is teaming with Kitchensurfing to bring personal chefs to your house in the Hamptons.

For one day only, you can use Uber to order your own personal chef to cook for you--provided you're at your vacation house in the Hamptons.

The ridesharing service is teaming up with Kitchensurfing, a service that lets you hire an on-demand chef to cook for you in your home. 

On Saturday, August 9, Uber customers can use the Uber app to drop a pin and book a Kitchensurfing chef on-demand. The chef--one of the 10 on-hand for Saturday--will come to your Hamptons house (assuming you have a Hamptons house) to cook and serve up a four-course meal of grilled summer BBQ favorites. 

It's $35 per person, which will get you (and five to 15 of your closest friends) a four-course meal for lunch (available between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.) or dinner (from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.). It's nothing if not efficient: Meal prep, service, and cleanup is all completed within 45 minutes. The cost covers ingredients and the chefs’ prep work, clean up and travel expenses through--of course--Uber. 

Kitchensurfing and Uber have been cooking up the partnership for about three months now. It's the latest move from the ridesharing company, which has recently also launched a carpool initiative called UberPool, a not-for-profit service for its Beijing clientele, and a program called Uber for Business to let businesses expense their employees' Uber rides.
