What it Costs

Hourly Rate

I charge a flat hourly rate of $65 per hour, plus the cost of the groceries if I am doing the grocery shopping. For example, I can cook for a family of 4, 4 different entrees, and three different sides in 5 hours. That means you will come home to 4 days of dinners cooked in your home. This pricing structure allows me to offer you the best value possible for a personal chef. Healthy home cooked meals, more time with those you care about most. I also charge per hour for grocery shopping as an option. I have always been able to complete the grocery shopping in one hour.

Since you are paying only for my time and not buying a product, there is also no tax added to your bill. I can tell you how many hours it will take when I know how many meals you want.

I cater to busy families, friends who want to share home cooked meals and seniors. Custom meals are tailored to your tastes, schedule and dietary needs. I include menu planning, shopping, cooking, packaging, labeling and reheating instructions, and leave your kitchen at least as clean as I found it!

Optional Additional Service: Grocery Shopping

I will do the grocery shopping for you, deliver it to your home, unpack the groceries and put them away. If there are times that your life is just too busy then I can provide this service when requested.
