What is a personal chef?

I will prepare custom meals that are tailored to your specific dietary needs and unique tastes. I will plan the menus, shop for groceries, cook the meals, and provide heating instructions. I can accommodate clients with celiac disease, food allergies, and most special diets.

*Due to Covid-19, I am not offering in-home cooking services at this time. I hope to resume in-home cooking once it is safe to do so. 

Consultation and Food Questionnaire

Once you’ve decided that you are ready to hire a personal chef, I will come to your home for a consultation. I will complete an in-depth food questionnaire, talk about your food preferences/dietary needs and familiarize myself with your kitchen. At the end of the consultation, I will collect a deposit. We will then schedule your future cook dates.

*Due to Covid-19, I am now offering virtual consultations.

Menu Planning

I create a custom menu for each individual client, based on your food preferences and dietary restrictions.

The Cook Date

On the cook day, I will shop for the freshest ingredients, come to your home and cook your meals for the rest of the week. All meals will be properly cooled and stored, with heating instructions.
