1. What areas do you service?

Kingwood, Humble, Atascocita, Houston, Conroe, Livingston any area within 70 miles but there is a fuel charge for over 30 miles travel distance. I charge according to the market price of fuel and it varies.

2. Why use a personal chef service?

Many people use the service for their families when they are too busy to cook a healthy meal due to hectic schedules.
One client used my services for her daughter who just had a baby and wanted to free her up to play with her newborn.
Perhaps you know an older person who doesn't eat or eat healthy because they say " I don't want to cook for myself" and you want to ensure they have some good meal choices.
I have clients who require certain menu restrictions due to diet or disease, I work with these individuals on their personal menus.

3. How is the food packaged?

I package the food in either metal containers for the oven or microwaveable plastic containers. They come in three sizes, family, personal and made for two.

4. Do I need to do anything special to prepare for your arrival?

This is a good question. I will need atleast one bare shelf in your refrigerator and enough shelf space in your freezer to hold the dishes I prepare for you. I also ask that the dishwasher be empty and I have a good amount of clear counterspace to work on. I bring my own spices,utensils and cookware.

5. What is your specialty?

Everyone asks this me question and I wish could give an answer but I have so many favorites and my specialties are changing constantly that I can't narrow it down to just one thing. I'd say my specialty is trying new ideas.

6. How long does it take you to prepare the meals?

It takes anywhere from 7 to 8 hours to prepare for a weekly family meal including clean up. It may take more or less time depending on the menu and difficulty level.

7. Do you have formal training?

Yes, I have been in the industry for over 25 years and have a degree in culinary arts. I also have a graet love for the art.

8. How many meals can I have prepared for my family?

I can prepare meals for a family of 4-6 for one week in one day's time.

9. Can I order half the regular service?

I wish I could make that available to you, but the service doesn't work that way. For this to be a profitable business for me, I can't do the same amount of cooking time and produce half the amount of food. It takes the same amount of planning, shopping and prep time to cook 10 portions of food as it does for 20 portions of food.

10. Is it possible to custom design a service?

My services are completely flexible, so that almost any request can be accommodated. If you find that you have more leftovers than you need, I can plan a weekly service for you. If you find that you don't have enough food I can do a monthly service.
