Personal Chef Services

How it Works

Step 1 – Initial Consultation and Meal Selection
First, we’ll set up a time for an initial meeting. We’ll ask you about any food allergies, likes and dislikes, and dietary preferences you may have. You’ll have the chance to choose your meals from our extensive list of menu suggestions and we’ll select appropriate side dishes based on your tastes. We’ll arrange a time for us to return to your home and prepare the meals you’ve selected.

 

Step 2 – Meal Preparation
Before we arrive on your chosen cooking day, we’ll purchase all of the groceries for your meals. We’ll be in your home for about 4 hours as we prepare your food. It is not necessary for you to be home at this time.  Chef Maria is a certified ServSafe food manager and Life From Scratch, LLC, is covered by liability insurance.

 

Step 3 – Packaging and Clean Up
Once the meal preparation is complete, we’ll package the food in storage containers of your choice, label each container, store the food in your refrigerator or freezer and leave you with heating instructions. We can package and portion your entrees for either lunch or dinner-sized portions. We’ll clean up, leaving your house exactly the same as it was before we came, except for the wonderful aroma of freshly prepared food.

 

Step 4 – Enjoy!
You enjoy healthy, organic, home-cooked, delicious meals when it’s convenient for you – with no mess, no clean-up, and no hassle!
