Personal Chef Services
I offer in-home meal preparation geared towards people who truly care about what they eat and love a good meal. My clients range from busy families to seniors and everyone in between. I cater to those following special diets as well as those who are simply too busy to even select a menu on their own. I help people recovering from hospital stays and injuries or families welcoming a new baby.
I love to cook healthy food for people
the way they would if they had
the time, energy or expertise.

How the service works
Your new life begins when you fill out a simple survey that will inform me about your needs and preferences. I put together a wide range of menus based on this survey so clients are encouraged to answer all the questions and include as much detail as possible.
After the survey is completed, we will set up a time for me to visit your kitchen and assess your space and appliances. On cook days, I will bring any small appliances and cookware needed for me to cook all of your desired dishes to perfection.
I will select your groceries from a reputable a local provider such as Sendik’s. If you prefer all organic ingredients, I will shop at Outpost or Whole Foods. I will cook for you on the scheduled dates and then I'll clean up the kitchen and store your delicious meals in the refrigerator and/or freezer with a full set of heating and storage instructions.
Personal Chef Services are intended to simplify your life so that you have much more time to do the things you love. You do not need to be home when I cook – but please ensure that no pets will roam in the kitchen! All you need to do is come home to a clean kitchen that smells delicious!
There is no minimum contract period for my services.
Some days/times are already reserved for regular weekly clients.
This is not a delivery service. Food prepared in your home will be freshest!
Servsafe Certified means that you can fully trust me with the safe handling, selection, preparation and storage of ingredients and meals.
