Personal Chef

Personal Chef Weekly & Bi-Monthly Preparations:

A standard weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly service includes five (5) distinct entrees and appropriate side dishes. The service is always about your needs and individual circumstances, so any combination of entrees and servings is available.

After your in-home meal assessment is complete, we will schedule your first cook date.  Now all you do is relax and enjoy the meals.


Pricing starts at $250 per service. This includes 1-4hrs of menu planning, shopping, labor for cooking, and thorough cleanup. The cost of groceries, dependent on number of meals and frequency, is added for each cook date.

NOTE: Groceries usually average around $90-$150 per cook date, again depending on ingredients (i.e. premium cuts of meat) and the amount of meals being prepared. If your menu requires more than 4 hours of service, my hourly rate is $50 for any additional time.

Additional Info:

  • All client assessments are complementary.
  • Disposable Container Fee: ($25.00 per cook date) These containers are oven/microwave safe and 100% recyclable but only a one-time use.
  • Re-usable Container Fee: $100.00 one time fee. You will own these containers after I have purchased them for you.
  • A Vehicle Delivery fee of $40.00 will be added to each service date (payment may be paid in installments).
  • Contract agreement and deposits required.

Dinner Parties:

Would you like to entertain at home but don't have the time (or interest) to prepare a formal, multi-course meal for friends, family or business associates? Let the Brown bag do the work for you!

After deciding on the perfect menu to fit your event, I will shop for all the ingredients, and prepare all courses in your own home. If you like, I can even dress the table and serve the meal to your guests. And, of course, your kitchen will be left completely cleaned and sanitized.
