Personal Chef Services

The full shebang

  • We have a one-on-one consultation to determine your taste preferences, dietary needs/requirements, preferred shops or food suppliers and your typical weekly schedule; I can work closely with your nutritionist, dietician or naturopath if need be
  • Based on the consultation and a questionnaire, I propose a menu with customized recipes for the week
  • I do all of the required grocery shopping
  • I prepare five fresh dinners, four portions of each, in your home (whether you live alone, with a partner, or in a large family) and pack everything into the fridge ready to serve, or to heat and serve! All meals are labelled with detailed instructions and best=before dates, as well as some suggestions for what to do with leftovers 
  • I do all of the dishes—and clean your kitchen, too!
  • $350 flat fee for the first week; $300 for subsequent weeks for five meals, four portions per meal
  • Grocery costs are not included in the cost of the service; I buy the groceries and you reimburse me

In-house meal prep by the hour

  • If you aren't ready to commit to the full shebang, hire me by the hour
  • Two-hour minimum commitment 
  • Typically I can prepare two full dinners in two hours
  • Everything will be packaged and labelled with expiry dates and heating and serving instructions
  • For this service, I use your groceries, so you control what you spend on food costs, quality of ingredients etc.—but all of the correct ingredients have to be there and easily accessible when I arrive
  • I can also shop for the groceries, but the time is charged by the hour
  • Your kitchen will be super clean when I'm done!
  • $125 for two hours; $50/hour for each additional hour
  • 50-per-cent deposit required

In-house cooking classes

  • Learn awesome tricks and tips, new skills or just a new kind of cuisine in the comforts of your own home
  • We come up with your ideal menu together
  • Classes run for an average of three hours
  • I bring the groceries, and specialty cooking equipment if needed 
  • Private cooking classes start at $400 for a simple three-hour class
  • Groceries are extra; 50 per cent deposit required
  • For individuals or more than one (corporate groups, kids, bachelorette parties, couples classes, nanny classes, interactive dinner parties and more!)

Dinner Parties, Cocktail Parties & Events

  • Prices are unique to each event
