First consultation or discussion of meals, schedule and personal preferences is free of charge. Conducted over the phone, during the time convenient for you. We will contact you to talk you to discuss your preferences including likes/dislikes, any food allergies/sensitivities, and the frequency for meals preparation: daily, weekly, etc.
Grocery shopping is done daily if necessary to ensure that all ingredients are fresh. Cost of grocery shopping is an additional fee and paid by the client.
Cooking is done at the client's house. We will provide all additional supplies needed to prepare the meals. Meals will be clearly labeled and placed in your fridge with heating instructions. Chef will clean the kitchen after the service so it is the same way as he found it.
We only charge for the time spent to purchase, prepare and clean, plus the cost of the groceries.
The rate for cooking/prepping is $60 per hour + cost of groceries.
The hourly rate for meal planning, grocery shopping (including travel time) is $50 per hour.
The number of hours will depend on the amount of meals and their complexity.
Typically, a week's worth of entrees for a family of four will take about 14 hours to prepare (approximately 2 hours a day), and about 4-8 hours to factor in menu planning, shopping, packaging, and clean-up).
NOTE: There is a one-time container charge of $25 for the packaging of your meals. These are durable, high-quality, re-usable containers. We will also send a basic customer agreement to review and sign before we start anything.
