Hostesses With The Mostest > Entertaining and Hospitality

Hostess hired a chef and then asked the guests to tip the chef.

<< < (2/8) > >>

Sharnita:
The thing is, when I go out I tip the waiter, not the chef. 

NyaChan:
I believe the chef in this case was performing the service function as well as cooking.  But I consider him to be in essence a caterer or catering staff - the host should have handled the tip, guests should never have to pull out their wallets at a hosted event.  If she couldn't afford to or did not want to tip him, she shouldn't have hired him and instead have hosted a party she could afford.

I don't know if Gumbysqueak meant he also served the food or if she meant he supplied the table linens, plates, glassware, etc., but it may be that he not only cooked the food, but acted as waiter as well.

Either way when I'm invited to a hosted dinner party, I don't expect to tip anyone!  :-\

Gumbysqueak:
OP here. The hostess is nice and well off. (Side Note: the Chef is a she.) I didn't have any cash on me, but my husband cares cash. If I had went alone I would have to ask someone for a loan. When I go out I take a clutch with ID and credit card and a compact. On the upside most people gave 5 or 20 dollars each to the Chef.

Edited since a is no the same as I.

I'm confused.  Why is that an "upside"?  (Well, for the chef it is, obviously, but I mean for anyone else.)

Did this hostess announce in her invitations "Our dinner will be prepared and served by highly acclaimed Chef Cheryl so please come prepared to tip her generously!"?
