Find a chef that has been certified as a food handler to assure your food is being prepared and stored safely. Once the meals are safely prepared and stored, it is easy to heat and prepare them and easy to clean up. No more after dinner drudgery.
More free time
No more do you have to worry about what to make for dinner when you come home tired from work or a business trip. No more shopping, going out, picking up, or preparation of the evening meals. Think of all the extra time you will save by hiring a Personal Chef. Time for yourself and the loved ones who are an important part of your life.
What will you pay for a Personal Chef?
It varies by region and also training, education, and/or experience. Some chef’s will charge by the meal, or by the hour. Some will include groceries and some will charge extra for groceries. Sometimes, there will be small add-on costs. These include using oils, sauces and spices from the chef’s own pantry, vacuum sealing food to last longer, and providing storage containers. All of this should be worked out with your chef at hire.
For chefs that cook for special occasions, dinner parties, or give cooking lessons, an hourly rate is sometimes the most effective way to price these services. The average going rate is between $25 and $50 an hour, with food often being an additional charge, but this can vary depending on many factors so be sure to find out the appropriate price range for your area.
A Final Note
Finally, if the price of a personal chef seems out of your budget, don’t forget that in addition to the great and healthy food you will receive, you will also be saving a great deal of time and minimizing some of your weekly stresses. Not only will you not have to worry anymore about making dinner, but you can also eliminate grocery shopping, washing pots and pans and cleaning your kitchen from your daily schedule. For some busy families, these advantages are indeed well worth the investment!
