As your private chef, I purchase the freshest ingredients, cook them in the safety and security of your home, and leave your kitchen spick-and-span for you to return to. After the initial consultation, you will receive a menu created specifically for you to choose from. The menu changes monthly, always being updated and expanded. You submit your menu items 4 days prior to your cook date, and come home to a refrigerator full of your favorite dishes complete with instructions on how to re-heat it. Most dishes are freezer-friendly and are optimally enjoyed when eaten within a week.
I purchase the food to ensure no ingredient is missed and for liability purposes. I will supply any kitchen tools I will need for you meal preparation and may ask you to either purchase or reimburse me for any additional storage containers that are deemed necessary. Depending on the packages purchased or amount of meals desired, I will be in your home anywhere from 2-8 hours. I try to coordinate my cook time around your schedule so that I can be as efficient as possible.
Allergen-friendly Transforming traditional dishes into nutrient-rich, allergen-friendly versions is my speciality. I have the most experience with gluten, dairy, fruit, corn, soy, egg, nut, and potato free diets. I cooks with alternative, healthy ingredients to make old-time favorites into nutritious celebrations of food. Dare me to a challenge, I never disappoint.
Anti-inflammatory I can help calm your arthritis, gastrointestinal problems, headaches, and more with my multi-faceted approach to inflammation. I use wisdom from the Ayurvedic tradition, night-shade free diet, and scientific studies on high omega 3 fat diets to create meals that create synchronicity between you and your body again.
Farm-to-Table Seasonal and local food shines in farm-to-table meals. The fresh, vibrant flavors of heirloom tomatoes or sweet turnips rarely need alteration. Farm-to-table invites you to connect with your local farmers and their harvest of that week. You meal is decided by the fragile balance of the climate.
Paleo and Ketogenic These ancestral diets that have been sweeping the nation are helping millions of people loose weight, increase their energy, and defy chronic and deadly illnesses including autoimmune disorders, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. They are founded upon a trifecta of protein, vegetables, and healthy fats with the reduction/removal of carbohydrates, sugars and processed foods. This diet that has transformed my life and I feel very passionately about its medicine.
Plated Meals A restaurant-like experience in the comfort of your home. Breakfast, lunch or dinner is served in a beautifully artistic presentationwithout you having to open a refrigerator door. Meals are carefully paired with freshly squeezed juice, wine, or a potion (herbal beverage). Meals can range from one to five courses and can be made in large enough portions for leftovers.
Individualized Recipes Recipes that have been adapted to your food intolerances, preferences, and health goals can be impossible to find in cookbooks or the internet. After tasting my irresistible (grain-free, dairy-free, egg-free, processed sugar-free) graham cracker cookies that you can't live without, you can purchase the recipe for your own recreation for years to come. I also create recipes for food lovers and other folks that need help in adapting recipes to their specific needs, but want to prepare their meals them self.
Picnic in the Park (or mountains) Ready made meals packed to go for a romantic Sunday afternoon picnic, a easy family dinner for a outdoor concert, or a fun activity when the in-laws come to town.
Weekly Menu Plans Menu plans take the thought out of what to buy at the grocery store and what to make for breakfast. They keep you on track with your health goals and ensure variety in your diet. They also help fill in the spaces between meals from one cook day to the next. They are kept consistent with you dietary specifications and goals and support you with creative and simple ideas you can approach on your own.
Vacation Package A stress-free vacation means being able to travel without worrying about where you can eat or get reservations at. Fully relax knowing you have a personal chef crafting your meals around your schedule and dietary restrictions. It's also a great way to have healthy, homemade snacks for a day in the mountains or a have cozy, dressed-down night after a long day out and about.
