A Personal Chef Service

Frequently asked questions

  1. What is the difference in a Private Chef and a Personal Chef?
    A Private Chef may cook daily meals for one family and may even live with them. A Personal Chef cooks for many clients, usually one per day. Multiple meals are prepared and packaged for consumption as needed.
  2. Do I need to be home while you are there?
    You do not need to be there. Most of my clients are at work and because I am busy cooking several things at the same time, I will need to focus on the work at hand. Your kitchen is my "office" for the day and in order for me to prepare your quality meals, it is best that I work alone.
  3. What types of payment do you accept?
    I accept four convenient methods of payment: cash, check, all major credit cards (via pay pal) and pay pal.
  4. How will my meals be packaged?
    At your interview, we will discuss packaging options and portions needed for your household. A variety of packaging may be used depending on the foods that are prepared. You will be provided with heating instructions, depending on packaging, each cheffing day! No matter how your food is packaged, clean-up is a breeze!
  5. How do I book my own Personal Chef?
    It could not be easier! Just call or send me an e-mail and we will schedule a time for your FREE consultation. During that time, we will complete an interview on your likes/dislikes, food allergies and specific needs you have regarding your diet. You will be provided an extensive menu from which you will choose your entrees. I will also "interview" your kitchen while there too.
Have additional questions or inquiries about a service or food item. Please enter your information below and we will get back you ASAP!!

  1. This sounds great, but can I afford your service?
    Absolutely! When you consider the cost of groceries, time to plan a variety of healthy meals, shopping, cooking and clean up time, you'll find the pricing to be quite affordable. And, you and your family can dine in the comfort of your home on healthy food, tailored to your specific preferences! If you are like most households, you probably eat out quite a bit. If you calculate the monies spent on these meals, you will most likely find a Personal Chef may save you money!
  2. I enjoy cooking but don't always have the time. Can I use your service on a part-time basis?
    Certainly! You do not need to sign a contract with me... Come and go as you please!!! Most clients enjoy once weekly chef dates... others prefer to not worry about defrosting their meals and opt for the fresher twice weekly service. You may have a lot of freezer space and want me to cook enough meals for two weeks or even a month on the same chef date... whatever you want can be arranged!
  3. I'm on a diet... how can you help?
    A large number of items on my menu are healthy, low-fat selections. If you are on a special diet, I will accommodate and prepare entrees to fit your specific needs.
  4. I sometimes like to entertain... can you help with this?
    Absolutely! If you want to do your own cooking but have no to time to plan or shop I'll do it for you! If you need a second pair of hands, I can help there too!
  5. Can you teach me how to make...???
    I'd love to! Contact me with your favorite culinary desire... we'll set up an appointment and I'll show you how!
