Paleo? Vegan? Kosher?

Keeping up with a demanding diet can be overwhelming. Get your life back by hiring a personal chef who specializes in dietary restrictions! 

PALEO DIETERS: Are you overwhelmed keeping up with all the bone broth, no-mato sauce, shank gravy, and home made Paleo staples you need to stockpile for a healthy, 100% Paleo lifestyle?

VEGANS: Are you a vegan exhausted making your own paneer, veggie burgers, and gorgeous healthy dinners that are more than just pasta or a salad?

CELIAC/GLUTEN-FREE: Are you struggling to eat both healthy and gluten free in a world where every gluten free product in the grocery store is full of empty calories and simple starches that are no better than mainlining sugar?

Give yourself the help you deserve by hiring a personal chef!

Chef-Prepared, Fully Customizable Meals

I literally do everything - plan the menu, do the shopping, cook the food, and clean the kitchen. Pick your options from the weekly menu, sit back, and enjoy!

Each meal is individually packed and stored with complete reheating instructions so you can enjoy custom tailored meals on your own schedule. 

If you're kosher, halal, or gluten free, having a private chef cook in your kitchen ensures everything meets your strictest dietary standards with no hazard of cross-contamination.

In-Home or Delivery Services

Cancel your reservations, skip the crowds, and enjoy custom meals tailored to your dietary needs!

You can choose between In-Home service or Meal Delivery. 

With In-Home Service, I arrive with fresh groceries, cook in your kitchen, clean up afterwards, and Tetris everything into your fridge. You're welcome to hang out with me while I cook. The more I know about your tastes the better I can tailor your weekly menu selections.

Delivery Service is a great option for people who aren't home during the day, have social anxiety, or have small kitchens. I'll do all the cooking at my own site then drop off your meal selections once a week, like a tasty but invisible culinary fairy.

How It Works

Consultation

I'll meet you in your home, survey your kitchen, pantry, and cooking tools, and most importantly sit down with you for an in-depth discussion of your personal health goals, culinary needs, and what flavors you love and hate. 

Personalized Menu

Every week I'll email you a customized menu. You pick the meals you want and make special requests. All replies are due 48 hours before your appointment time. 

Cooking Time! 

On the day of your choice, I'll handle the grocery shopping and show up at your door ready to do the food prep, cooking, clean-up, and dishes. You're welcome to join me in the kitchen! I love to teach! 

Diets I've Worked With

  • Keto
  • Whole 30
  • Paleo AIP - Autoimmune Protocol
  • Strict Paleo (no eggs, no dairy, no grains, no legumes,  no exceptions)
  • Relaxed Paleo (butter, goat milk & goat or sheep cheese allowed in small quantities)
  • Macros for Bodybuilders
  • Vegan
  • Octo-Lavo Vegetarian
  • Gluten Free
  • Lactose Free
  • Allergy/Elimination Diets

On average, I can complete grocery shopping at your store(s) of choice, prepare a week's worth of customized dinners, and finish cleanup in 5-6 hours. You get a week of chef prepared meals made in your own home for less than the cost of eating out.
