Personal Chef Services Personalized Meal Planning & Preparation
Why use a personal chef?
Are you choosy about your meals? Want to eat exactly what you crave without all the additives? Have you tried meal delivery services or gym pick-up meals and they just didn’t quite satisfy you? What to return up to 10 hours a week of your life back, by not planning, shopping or cooking your meals? These and more are some of the reasons why using a personal chef may be a great fit for you!
Who is a typical client?
The best relationships are with clients who care about what they are eating and are open to clear communication. In our world, food options are endless and even cheap. A personal chef client is someone who has little time to shop or cook or perhaps has an illness or injury and still wants quality, custom food. Meals are customized to the ingredients, spices and portion sizes you desire. A typical client enjoys this very personal service as it gives them peace of mind and freedom to do other fun things.
How does this work? Let's break it down for you
First, we will meet to determine what you want to accomplish by using my personal chef services. The initial meeting lasts 45-60 minutes. We will discuss your food likes, dislikes, food allergies and special dietary requirements. We will then decide on your first meals and formulate a menu. Service can be provided weekly, bi-weekly or monthly, depending on your meal needs. I will shop for the necessary ingredients, prepare the food in your kitchen, using either your or my equipment, package and label the food and clean your kitchen. Every cookdate includes a menu sheet, describing the menu and how to reheat foods so you can enjoy your meals.
How much is this going to cost me?
Pricing varies based on number of meals desired. You pay for my services and the exact cost of the grocery receipt. Payment is due at the time of service, via cash or check. Credit card processing available soon. A typical chef fee starts at $250 per cookdate, dependent on how much food is prepared. Groceries can vary from $65-225 per cookdate, depending on proteins used and if organic food is purchased. Each serving averages between $10-15 dollars.
How do I get started?
Please call or email me to schedule a no-obligation assessment. Let’s meet each other to see if we could be a good match. We’ll plan a first cookdate and then keep communication open to make sure you are getting the meals and service you desire and deserve.
