Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is a personal chef the same as a private chef?

    Personal chefs provide a customized service to several clients in the form of delicious weekly meals. Private chefs are typically employed by one client for whom they cook multiple meals in a day.

    A personal chef usually serves one client per day according to customized menus. Personal chefs may prepare clients' meals in a licensed commercial kitchen or in a client's home. Meals are packaged and stored with reheating instructions for clients to enjoy at their leisure.

  • Is hiring a personal chef as expensive as it sounds?

    No! Our meal plans make the luxury of having a personal chef a reality.

    A personal chef is ideal for busy professionals, families, people with special dietary needs - anyone who wants to enjoy healthy, delicious meals despite the busy pace of life. Just as a cleaning service helps you stay on top of your household chores, a personal chef service takes away the stress of daily dining decisions.

    The only decadence is knowing that you're eating well without missing a beat.
