  • Common Questions

    Who needs a personal chef?

    • Anyone who believes in the importance of having great meals at home and for a fair price. Most people employ a personal chef because they don’t have the time, desire or know-how to cook the food they want to eat each day. This could be single professionals, busy working families, seniors, new mothers, people with specific diets, etc.

    Can I afford this? Isn’t having a personal chef a luxury?

    • Yes, you can! The cost of a meal plan is comparable to eating out at a decent restaurant. Only you’re in your own home and have ingredients and meals tailored specifically to your needs. Beyond preparing delicious food, a personal chef will also save you time - which can be priceless.
    • As your chef I will plan your meals, do all shopping, food preparation and clean up. I can save you 10-12 hours of time per week by doing this all for you! Last but not least, employing a personal chef is an investment in you and your families health.
    • No more unhealthy restaurant food, frozen meals, or hitting the drive-thru on the way home. With a personal chef you’ll be protecting your most valuable assets - your health and well-being

    How does service work?

    • Please refer to “How it Works” tab

    Do I Need To Be Home When You Are Cooking?

    • No, you don’t. In most cases my clients are working while I’m in the home preparing meals.

    Where do you shop?

    • This varies from client to client. I’m happy to shop at your favorite market or specialty store upon request. Otherwise I visit various grocery stores, farmers markets, etc. to find the freshest, highest quality and best priced ingredients available.

    Are you fully bonded and insured?

    • Yes!
