Personal Chef Prices - Classic Fresh Service
Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like
and let the food fight it out inside
~ Mark Twain
Classic Fresh Service is designed for those clients who wish to have freshly prepared meals on a weekly basis - nothing is frozen.
You may choose your own dishes from our menu pages (and change ingredients should they not appeal to you) or request dishes you would like, but do not see listed here.
Alternatively, once you've completed your personalized Food Questionnaire, we would also be happy to design a menu for you based on your likes, dislikes and unique palate.
Because we prepare everything from scratch, we generally shop for 1-2 hours in the early morning, then prep and cook for approximately for 6-8 hours.
For Weekly Fresh Service, we will come to your home or deliver once per week and prepare 3 to 5 different entrees with 3 different side dishes (enough for the whole week). All dishes are packaged for your refrigerator for warming in the oven and/or microwave.
For those wishing to lose a few pounds or are just desirous of more balanced and healthy fare, we will prepare recipes from The South Beach Diet, Cooking Light, as well as dishes from Canyon Ranch Spa.
Weekly Fresh Service for 2-3 people: 2-3 servings of 3 entrees/3 sides = 6-9 servings = $200
Weekly Fresh Service for 2-3 people: 2-3 servings of 4 entrees/3 sides = 8-12 servings = $225

There will, for the most part, be a $10 Pantry Fee (for items Let's Eat Home!uses from our own kitchen). So as not to buy unnecessary and large amounts of staples for you, i.e. flour, eggs, sugar, spices, oils, vinegars, garlic, onions, etc., we at times will borrow from our own pantry.
Generally, groceries will cost $100+ for 10 meals and side dishes for two people; $175-$200+ for 20 meals and side dishes for 4 people. Of course it all depends on the dishes you order; Beef Tenderloin will be more than Rib Eye; Crab will be more than Pasta; Veal more than Chicken etc.
A re-usable storage container fee (Gladware) will be included on the bill with your first order. The storage containers generally run about $25.00 depending on how many containers are required (i.e additional dishes/desserts are ordered, single serve meals etc.).
The Gladware containers are completely utilitarian as one can cook, store, defrost, reheat and clean them in the dishwasher for future use. Black bottomed containers only (not lids) are oven safe as long as they are placed on a cookie sheet in an oven no hotter than 350 degrees.
