Chefstro, a new Boston-based startup co-founded by six Harvard Business School students, is offering Bostonians the opportunity to have a personal chef come to their homes and cook for them and their guests.

Chefstro has officially launched its flagship “chef at home” product this week, enables prospective dinner party hosts in the Boston area to select from a variety of menus on its web site, choose a date and time, and have a local chef arrive at their home to cook the chosen meal for them and their guests. Chefstro contracts with young and upcoming chefs, and offers set menus, making it easier and cheaper for customers to host a chef-created dinner at home. Chefstro's chefs do everything from ingredient shopping to cleaning post dinner, making this a zero-hassle commitment for hosts.

“We’re excited to take the ‘chef at home’ concept and offer it at a lower price point,” said Rohan Pradhan, Co-Founder and CEO of Chefstro. “We think that folks in Boston will love the opportunity to host great three-course dinner parties in the comfort of their homes, while avoiding the effort that comes with hosting events.”

One sample menu, priced at $35 per person, starts with a duo of bruschetta, has steak tagliata as a main course, and concludes with a minted strawberry salad and homemade shortbread.

“By offering set menus on our web site, we hope to take some of the hassle out of working with a professional chef” said Co-Founder Lauren Holliday.

Pradhan looks forward to continuing to grow the business, which has thus far been funded via Harvard Business School grants, from its offices in Allston. “At this stage, we hope to continue to add more chefs, as well as get our product out there to more of Boston.”
