 I went to a restaurant that serves "breakfast at any time". So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance ~ Steven Wright






Personal Chef Prices - All Inclusive Gourmet Service








In addition to our Classic Personal Chef Service and, as the time is so right to save money by eating home more, we are now offering an All Inclusive Gourmet Service.


Service for 1-3 People:


1. We will prepare 3 entrees/main dishes, 1 side dish, plus a loaf of Crusty (Parmesan) Garlic Bread and a weekly sweet surprise, for $295.00 all inclusive. Meals will serve 1-3 people for up to 9 dinners. This price includes the chef's fee, pantry fee (all staples from Let's Eat Home's kitchen), groceries and delivery (if more than 15 miles away, there will be an additional, but nominal delivery fee).


Service for 4-5 People: 

1. We will prepare 3 entrees/main dishes, 1 side dish, plus a loaf of Crusty (Parmesan) Garlic Bread and a weekly sweet surprise, for $345.00 all inclusive. Meals will serve 4-5 people for up to 15 dinners. This price includes the chef's fee, pantry fee (all staples from Let's Eat Home's kitchen), groceries and delivery (if more than 15 miles away, there will be an additional, but nominal delivery fee).



As always, all your dishes are freshly prepared and delivered (complete with labeled reheating instructions) on the day of your cookdate. Nothing is frozen. As everything is labeled and packaged for the fridge and/or the freezer, you may also choose to freeze dishes for future meals. New dishes will be added frequently.


Though we do subscribe to a heart-healthy approach to cooking, we do not sacrifice flavor. We use heart-healthy oils and, if the dish calls for butter, we use it very sparingly.  Our dishes reflect the freshest ingredients cooked simply and beautifully with lighter sauces that enhance rather than conceal.


If you are a new client and you require specific types of preparation due to allergies and/or dietary restrictions please indicate that on the Client Food Questionnaire found on the last page of our website.  Our Classic Personal Chef Service will, of course, also cater to every dietary and culinary request.
