IN HOME MEAL PREP SERVICES

Initial Consultation

Chef Starr will come to your home and discuss your preferences including likes/dislikes, any food allergies/sensitivities, and the frequency of your personal chef plan. If you love seafood or greens, so that I’ll know this from the start. And, if you hate something, you can count on not seeing it. I’ll also learn about any special diets you follow and your dietary restrictions. So, if you’re trying to eat more whole grains, are on a particular diet, or want to avoid certain foods, I can help you do this and make doing so delicious.

This consultation for personal chef services is free of charge.

 

Shopping

Shopping will be done the day of meal prep service. I’ll shop for the freshest ingredients and cook everything in the safety of your own kitchen using my equipmentThis will ensure that all ingredients are fresh. Any dietary needs or lifestyle preferences that were discussed in the initial consultation will be accommodated (such as keto, paleo, gluten free, whole 30, vegan, vegetarian, and sodium restrictions). 

 

Meal Prep Service

Service will be conducted in your home and Chef Starr will bring any additional supplies needed to prepare your meals. Items will be clearly labeled and placed in your fridge with heating instructions. Chef Starr will clean as she goes and leave your kitchen as she found it.

 

Pricing

Instead of charging per dish, you will only be billed for Chef Starr’s time and the cost of groceries. This allows you to customize a meal plan without minimums. The rate is $90 per hour + cost of groceries for on-site  in-home meal preparation. The hourly rate for meal planning, grocery shopping, and travel from market  to home is $50 per hour. The number of hours will vary due to the amount of meals and their complexity. Typically, a week's worth of entrees with sides for a family of four will take about 3 hours to prepare, and about 2 hours to factor in custom menu planning, shopping, packaging, and clean-up.

 

NOTE: There is a one-time container charge of $75 for the packaging of your meals. These are durable, high-quality, re-usable containers. 

 

Payments

Invoices will be sent to your email via Quickbooks.
