A personal chef provides a much needed service to families and individuals who are looking to gain more time each week and to ease the stress of planning meals at the end of a busy day. As your personal chef, I’ll create a custom meal plan for you, shop and prepare your food in the safety of your own kitchen, and package and store your meals along with specific handling instructions. Your delicious, healthy meals can then be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home at your convenience.
In addition to weekly or as-needed service, there are additional cooking services provided by Thymely Gourmet highlighted in Packages & Pricing.
How it works:
Our initial meeting is complimentary and will be an opportunity for me to get to know you and your family, the types of food you like/dislike as well as any dietary restrictions or allergies. We will also discuss the kind of service and schedule that best suits your family. This initial assessment will provide me with the necessary information to make delicious meals you and your family will love.
After our first meeting, I will research and prepare your custom meal plan based on your preferences and present it to you for review and approval. If you have special recipes or family favorites you enjoy, I’ll do my best to accommodate your request.
On our scheduled cooking date, I will bring all the necessary ingredients and cooking equipment to your home. Because I shop just before arriving at your home, I am happy to pick up a few incidental items you need such as milk, bread, diapers, pet food, etc (for reimbursement only). I will prepare your meals, package and label them, pack them neatly in your fridge or freezer and leave your kitchen cleaner than when I arrived. You only need to heat your food and savor the flavors and aromas of a home cooked meal.
Ironically, after our initial meeting, you may rarely see me. I’m usually working in your home while you are away. However, it’s important to me that you’re happy with the service I’m providing. I will continue to connect with you in regard to any changes in diet or food preferences you may have. It’s essential to me that our relationship is a good fit — for your health, your budget, and your peace of mind.
