What is included with your service?
- Consultation and Assessment - I will meet with you to complete a short assessment to determine your dietary needs. This includes likes or dislikes, allergies, or any special dietary restrictions.
- Personalized Menu - I customize each individual menu to fit my client's needs.
- Shopping, Cooking, and Clean Up - On the morning of your Chef Date I shop for the ingredients I need for the day to ensure you receive the freshest meals possible. I then go to your home where I prepare the menu that you pre-approved. I clean the kitchen. You are left with a refrigerator full of fresh, healthy meals with complete heating instructions.
How is the food packaged?
- I am happy to use any glass or plastic storage containers you have at home or I can purchase containers prior to your chef date. We discuss packaging in more detail during the consultation.
- I package meals family-style, in two portions, or individually.
Do you cook for special diets or allergies?
- I can help anyone with most types of diets or allergies, including heart-healthy, gluten-free, or a wide variety of allergies.
- Some special diets may be charged a small fee for research and menu planning.
What type of cuisine do you prepare?
- I prepare a wide variety of cuisines from many different areas of the world including, but not limited to, Mexican, Italian, Mediterranean, Asian, or Indian (I cook it all).
What if my kitchen is not equiped with what you need?
- No problem! I bring my chef kit with me which includes cutting boards, knives, measuring equipment, spatulas and the like, cleaning supplies, and dry spices to name just a few.
How often is my Chef Date?
- It depends on your needs, but typically I offer weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly service.
Do you sell Gift Certificates?
- Yes! My gift certificates make great gifts for weddings, baby showers, or for people recovering from an illness.
How are payments handled?
- Before your first chef date I collect a deposit of $100 that will be applied to your remaining balance on your chef date. I accept cash or check.
