DENVER (Aug. 21, 2010) Do you ever wish that you could have your own personal chef? It used to be that this was a luxury available only to a privileged few, but a new Colorado-based business is bringing the expertise of professional chefs and sommeliers to at-home cooks of all levels across the country.

The foundation of The Kitchen Hotline is an interactive website that has extensive content about food, wine and entertaining, coupled with a unique opportunity for real-time conversations with professional chefs and sommeliers. Members can talk with the hotline's expert chefs and sommeliers via live online chat or on the phone to answer any cooking or wine-related questions they might have whether they're in the kitchen cooking dinner and trying to figure out a new recipe, at the grocery store searching for ingredients, or planning a dinner party for friends and family. Members can call on the hotline's experts as many times as needed and there are no time limits for the phone conversations.

Mawa McQueen, president and CEO of The Kitchen Hotline, has a long history of working with five-star restaurants and chefs, and wanted to make professional chefs and sommeliers accessible to a wider audience. "Everyone deserves to have easy access to expert information about wine and cooking, but I couldn't find a service that offered this. The Kitchen Hotline is the answer by providing one-on-one solutions for each of our members," she said.

Membership also includes weekly menus with recipes and shopping lists and a one hour consultation with a nutritionist (additional consultations with nutritionists are available for additional fees). The Kitchen Hotline will also soon offer online wine and nutrition webinars.
