How the Service Works

A complimentary consultation will take place in your home. This will give me the opportunity to meet you and get to know your specific situation, expectations and dietary needs. After the initial meeting, you will fill out a brief Client Assessment Form. This will familiarize me with any medical conditions, dietary restrictions as well as your food preferences. Please note that I cannot provide this service for individuals with food allergies.

From this point, I will create custom menu suggestions designed for  you and your family. All meal plans will require your selections and approval. You may also incorporate any of your favorite recipes. We will also determine what type of schedule and service is optimal for you.


Grocery Shopping

The ingredients for your meals will be purchased by me the day of the food preparation.  I will also gladly pick up any additional grocery items you need, just email me a list the night before .  Grocery shopping happens to be one of my favorite activities.  I love foraging at various local markets finding the freshest, best, seasonal ingredients.


Food Preparation

After grocery shopping,  I will come to your home with my kitchen tools to prepare and cook your menu selections.  It is not necessary that you are home while I am cooking.  We will discuss the logistics of home entry during our consultation.  The time that I spend in your home will depend on your menu selections.

Your meals will be neatly packaged, dated, labeled, and stored appropriately, either in the refrigerator or freezer. Complete heating instructions will be provided. There are many options for food storage containers which we will discuss.

When I leave,  your kitchen will be left in the same clean condition as when I arrived.
