Personal Chef Service: Healthful, home-cooked meals – without any of the work!
What is a personal chef?
Our personal chef service is created to prepare meals uniquely designed for you and your family. A special diet or even your own individual tastes can be addressed. Your nutritional health needs can be managed by a personal chef. We will cook these meals in your home kitchen on a weekly, monthly, or as-needed basis.
What is the difference between a personal chef service and a caterer?
A personal chef prepares and serves food items in the client’s home. A caterer prepares the food at a separate location and brings meals to the client’s home. The process of preparing food directly in the client’s home allows for a more intimate experience for the client and their guests.
What is the difference between a personal chef and a private chef?
A personal chef works for clients on an as-needed basis. Private chefs work exclusively for one client, preparing meals daily, in their homes.

How it works:
We can chat on the phone or meet in person for a free consultation. This way we can determine your dietary preferences and develop a customized meal plan. As a whole food personal chef service, we focus on using the highest quality ingredients. Specifically nutrient-dense, preservative-free, fresh, organic, local, and seasonal produce and meat.
We will also discuss the frequency of service and take a quick tour of your kitchen. This initial assessment will allow the chef to create a customized menu based on your individual needs. After you are presented with a personalized menu plan, a weekly (or one-time) cooking appointment is scheduled. Your chef will grocery shop on the day of service and prepare the meals in your own home. In addition, properly package and store food with easy reheating instructions, and tidy up the kitchen. Your kitchen and home will be filled with the delightful aroma of home-cooked food.
What will my groceries cost?
This is your choice. I shop at the grocery store of your choice and cook what you like. While one store may be a bit pricier than another and ribeye steaks usually cost more than chicken, I’ve gotten pretty good at balancing menus and keeping clients’ grocery bills in line with their budgets.
