Think of it, as you have asked for someone to prepare a meal for you, they have asked questions to find your favourite dish, they have researched where to obtain the spices and ingredients, they have organised the equipment, they have gone out and purchased the goods with their own funds, they have honed their skills to be the best, refreshed their memory on how to create that dish and they have set aside the time to prepare all before you arrive and set the table for your experience.
