This would take place in your kitchen. You will be working with Salma for approx. 4-5 hours during which time you will make enough for two people. You will prepare two appetizers, a soup and two main dishes with all of their accouterments, and a dessert. The meals can be frozen to save them for a future meal.
Salma can make 'almost' everything vegetarian and can discuss food allergies, HOWEVER, you can't say "I don't like garlic or onions "…
An 5% fee, not to exceed $25 total, will be added to any winning bid to aid in covering auction costs.
