What is mytable:
mytable is an iOS and Android app thats a marketplace for home cooks. We work with you to find your best meals and we help you list them on mytable. We run a dinner service from 5 to 9 pm and work with you to find days during the week you can cook during those hours. Eaters can order your meals and we provide drivers to pickup the meal from your house and deliver directly to the eater. You keep most of the proceeds from the meal. The more meals you sell the more money you will make :)

Hmmm. Guess I wasn't too far off when I mentioned UBER and their thumbing their nose at the laws in another thread awhile back about supper clubs.

Any mention of a vetting process or do they just take your word for it?

I am not much of a reader learner (more of a visual type) but I think I pretty much got the gist of things (thanks for the link @cheflayne ).

 

Pretty much anyone who "thinks they can cook" can be considered for this program.

Company requires strict adherence to all laws re the kitchens and personal licensing but doesn't sound like they require proof.

As a diner you cannot hold the company responsible for any meal purchased (it's all on the "chef" who of course is licensed, inspected and carries insurance because of course said chef has promised these are in place) so you are SOL if you croak.

 

Oh .... they can change the wording of anything posted on their social media sites.

 

It could be a nice gig if you have already have an inspected kitchen to work from but as these "chefs" have all their info posted they will be easy for pickings for the Texas HD inspectors if they don't.

The food trucks already have a rough time of it because of the cottage law (it created a LOT of ill will between the home bakers and the TRA).

I can only imagine what is gonna happen when these delivery only chefs become a threat to the brick and mortar bottom lines.

 

Should be interesting to watch.

I was implying that I'm not in the area, and that i'm interested if they come to my area, which is why i didn't apply.

 

Thanks for the input mimi.

So it sounds to me like Mytable is basically a marketing arm for local professional cooks, yah?

And I say "professional" because even though the PR touts "anyone who thinks they 

can cook", and right from their home, the truth is only food-safety certified...people...that either operate 

from, or have access to, a heath approved, permitted kitchen can engage in this legally, in virtually 

every state in the US. After all, you're providing food for public consumption for monetary gain.

So even though they say it, Josephine homemaker who knows all Bobby Flay's recipes,

(maybe even his shoe size :suprise:) and wants to offer her great home cooking, simply can't do this legally

out of her home. 

Which of course is a good thing, from a public health protection standpoint, but it does IMO make 

the statements implying anyone can do this, a bit misleading at best.

It' a bit more sinister than that. You don't make a statement like "It doesn't matter if you're a... culinary student trying to put yourself through school or a stay-at-home parent who makes a killer mushroom stew. If you think you can cook, we want to talk to you" unless you are saying screw the laws. There is no way that people like this could sell food legally. All that legal crap in the contract is just to cover THEIR ass so they can say it's not their fault WHEN something happens.

 

It seems like if somebody creates an app for something they think they can get around the legalities. As I said, this is very much like the UBER business model and I'm sure whoever is behind it only sees the opportunity to make $$$$$$ by exploiting well meaning people (both cooks and customers) who don't know any better.

 

If this was on the "up and up" why wouldn't they be recruiting restaurants, caterers, etc instead?

Because @HalB ....that business model has already been covered.

There is one in my area (The Takeout Taxi).

It has been in and out of business for a decade preying mostly on the night shift hospital employees who are sick of Chinese food.

 

I have been pondering this thread (I have no real life lol ;-) and just because there is a ton of legalese there to discourage blowback it is only a disclaimer and is only as good as the paper it is printed on.

Anyone with an attorney can sue (civil cases) and sometimes the local DA's office will pick a case to try just to set precedence (those are criminal cases and very scary... I know because I used to watch Boston Legal).

 

Like I posted before it will be interesting to watch (esp the Austin branch as that city is a hotbed of under the radar cooking for cash).
