does the Personal Chef service work?
goal as your personal chef is to prepare meals that are the best
you’ve ever tasted! Together, we will meet to determine what
your food preferences and dietary restrictions are, and how often
you will require my services. Once I learn about your likes and
dislikes I will use the information you have provided me to create
a menu tailored exactly to your needs. You are encouraged to choose
menu items from my website, provide me with recipes of your own,
or submit a combination of the two. As the saying goes, “The
world is your oyster”!
is the difference between a personal chef and a private chef?
personal chef generally cooks for different clients in the client’s
home. A personal chef may cook for more than one client a day. A
private chef usually works for one family or individual on a full-time
basis, and may actually live with the family or individual and may
be responsible for preparing up to three meals a day.
will you be preparing the meals?
will arrive at your home on the agreed upon date after shopping
for your event. You don’t necessarily have to be home in order
for me to prepare your menu, as long as we make the appropriate
arrangements ahead of time. I will prepare your meals in your kitchen
and leave it sparkling clean. I will also package your food and
label it with heating instructions and store it in your refrigerator
or freezer. If you would prefer me to stay and serve your meal(s)
a la minute, I would be happy to do so.
equipment will I need for you to cook in my kitchen?
will bring my own knives, utensils, pots and pans, and any other
specialty equipment I may need to prepare your meal. If possible,
I would like to see your kitchen or have a brief description of
it prior to your event so that I am familiar with my work area.
long will you be cooking for?
the event you would like meals prepared for several days, I will
be cooking different items from scratch and may be working for a
number of hours. Obviously, the hours necessary are dictated by
the degree of sophistication of your chosen menu. If you request
that I stay for the entire evening’s dinner service in the
case of a romantic dinner for two or a larger party, it is difficult
for me to say the exact number of hours. One of my most important
goals as your personal chef is to make your evening as carefree
as possible, and I am more than willing to work around any schedule
you might request.
