Frequently Asked Questions

I am visiting Orlando. Will you cook for me and my group?

I will come to your rental home, condo, or conference center and prepare a wonderful hot meal for your arrival after a full day of work or play. I will do all the shopping, prepare the meals, and clean up afterwards. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and lift your fork.

How flexible are your menu options?

Think of the online menus as ideas, giving you a taste of what I can do. My experience includes a diverse menu with cuisines from around the world. I am completely flexible and will work with you to tailor a menu to fit your desires. Keep in mind, I am YOUR Chef.

What is a Personal Chef?

As your Personal Chef, I give you the gift of time. I prepare custom meals for you and your family in your home for any time frame you wish. Meals are packaged with detailed instructions and can be refrigerated or frozen. After we clean-up, you are greeted with wonderful aromas, a spotless kitchen, and a fridge full of professionally made meals, ready to heat and eat at your leisure. Just 3 simple steps and you are on your way to saving valuable time and money:

  • Complete the food assessment form. This brief questionnaire will give me an idea of your likes and dislikes. Once I receive the form, we will schedule a time to meet in your home to discuss your exact culinary needs, types of meals you and your family love, spice index, and any unique dietary requirements. At the end of the consultation, we will schedule your future cook dates. Recipes are welcome! Simply email to me at least two days prior to your cook date.
  • Review your suggested menu. Whether it is an old family recipe, comfort food, vegan, gluten-free, or something completely new, I will personalize each dish to your palate. Once your menu is completed, I will email it to you for your approval a few days prior to your cook date.
  • Enjoy your meals. I will arrive at your home with the freshest ingredients and cooking supplies to begin preparing your meals. Generally, it takes about 6 hours from start to finish, and you will be left with a clean kitchen, and a variety of nutritious, satisfying meals. This can be done while you are at home or away. Meals are vacuum-sealed to save space and preserve freshness.

What is the difference between a Personal Chef and a Caterer?

A Personal Chef prepares and serves all food items in the client's home. A caterer prepares the food at a separate location and brings it to the client's venue. Typically, the caterer provides all the equipment for a large party, from tables and chairs to linens and tablecloths. In contrast, a Personal Chef gives you a much more intimate experience by preparing food directly in the client's home, typically for a group of 50 or smaller. The client and their guests become immersed in the process, allowing their senses to be treated to the sights and smells of the food as it is being cooked.

How does the Pantry Service work?

Allow me to make your life easier and save you money. As your personal shopper, I take care of everything, so you can still do what you love – cook for your family! I’ll save you time by making the trip to the grocery, collecting and delivering all the necessary ingredients for as many meals as you like. I’ll even include some of my favorite, simple recipes to get you started.

What do I need to provide for my in-home party?

An oven, stove top and sink will be used during your service. I will provide chafing dishes for a buffet and serving utensils. You provide dishes, linens, glasses, silverware. Cleaning is all taken care of by us.

How do I purchase services?

I would love to ‘pamper your palate!’ Call me or send me a note from the Contact Us form. I will take time to get to know you, your goals and wishes, answer your questions, and develop a plan to ensure your experience is exactly what you envision. To lock in your date, simply book your event with a deposit. For meal planning services, we will discuss at your assessment. Gift certificates are available for purchase directly on our website.
