  Frequently Asked Questions

In this page you can find the answers to some frequently asked questions.

What is a Personal Chef?
A professional Chef that custom prepares meals to your tastes and nutritional requirements, all in your own home.

Who needs a Personal Chef?
Busy professionals, families on the go, convalescents, elderly, new parents, students, persons with specific nutritional needs or diets, and anyone who would rather leave the cooking to someone else.

How does the service work?
An assessment is made of your family's favourite foods and nutritional needs.
You select entrees from our extensive menu, as well as the days you would like the Chef to attend at your home. These are to be submitted a minimum of 3 days prior to the Chef attending your home. Menus are subject to change from time to time.
The Chef does the grocery shopping, attends at your home to make your selected entrees, leaves the entrees packed in individual or family style containers, and leaves the kitchen clean

Why should I have a Personal Chef?
Healthier than eating out or pre-packaged meals;
Less expensive than eating out;
More time for family and the pursuits you love;
Meals custom made just for you.

Why not just eat out?
Nutritional value of restaurant food is questionable. There is no assurance about the sanitary condition of the kitchen or whether the person that prepared your food was trained in proper food handling techniques and hygiene.
