As we specialize in cooking for small, intimate catered affairs, nothing about your food is left to chance when it comes to your special event. We use only the freshest gourmet ingredients (locally sourced, if possible) in all of our dishes. We meticulously oversee every detail of the menu, food preparation, presentation and service. We will meet your every requirement and ensure that your experience is perfectly timed, exciting, memorable and, of course, completely delicious.

Personal Chef

We know that there are many wonderful families who are either too busy or too tired to cook consistent family meals. This is why we are happy to do the hard work for you!

How it works

We hold an initial consultation to customize your menus and set a "cookdate". We will then send you a finalized menu.
On the day of the cookdate, we will do the shopping or have Fresh Direct deliver. We only use the best ingredients and will choose organic or local when available.

One of our chefs will come to your home and cook the entire menu and store the finished meals in your refrigerator, freezer or have it waiting for you warm in the oven. This process takes usually 4-6 hours. We do all the clean up - all you will notice is a fridge full of delicious gourmet food.
We package (using the packaging of your choice), label and store your meals, and leave detailed reheating instructions.

As we specialize in baby and toddler meals, we are happy (and excited) to make your kid's food for you. Our infant and child meals are just as delicious and gourmet as our family meals - and are planned to match the family's menu so your little ones can fully participate in the family meal.

Private Chef

For exclusive private chef services, we provide quality, gourmet, customized fresh gourmet meals served right after preparation. Some families requre this service a couple times a week, while others would like a chef to become part of their everyday household. Please email or call Lisa for a private consultation to see what is best for your needs.
