Dinner for the Week (or For Those Busy Days)
My Turn To Cook prepares three to five complete meals with side dishes. Meals are
prepared to feed four to six people, but can be packaged in a variety of ways
depending on the size of your family. My most typical packages are for 1, 2, 3, 4 or 6
people. You can get a full week's worth of meals or have packaged meals to use whenever
your schedule is too hectic to cook.
I shop the same day I cook so food is always at its freshest. After I prepare
your meals, I package and vacuum seal food. You'll get a list of all prepared food
along with reheating instructions and suggestions for mixing and matching
entrees and side dishes.
You'll receive two bills for my personal chef services - a grocery bill and a
service bill. For a family of four, grocery costs typically run from $60 to $100,
depending on your choice of food. Service fees range from $175 to $225, depending
on the number of meals prepared and the number of people to be served.
If meals need special spices or oils that you don't have in your pantry, I'll provide
them and charge a small pantry fee. Pantry fees range from $1 to $10.
My Turn To Cook is an ideal alternative to a caterer for dinner parties, special
celebrations, or romantic dinners. You custom design your menu, and I'll do the
shopping, prepare the food at your home or event location, and leave the kitchen spotless.
Leave all the work to me! You get a home-cooked meal that your guests will rave over,
and you still have time to enjoy the celebration.
A single dinner for four people ranges from $50 to $100, including groceries and service.
Dinner parties for up to 25 people are $30 per hour plus the cost of groceries.
Wakes and Bereavement Dinners
Let me take over the cooking so you can spend more time with
family and friends during your time of grief. I'll prepare dinner, lunch, or
brunch at your home, church, or other location.
Bereavement dinners and wakes are $30 per hour plus the cost of food.
You make the meal and I'll supply the soup or salad. Or, let me prepare an
array of side dishes or help you out with the entrée. Perfect for someone who
likes to cook but doesn't have time to prepare a full meal or as extra help
for holidays or special celebrations. You get the flexibility to design a
personal chef service that fits your needs.
Call for details and pricing.

Personal chef services are the ideal gift for new mothers or those recovering
from illness or surgery. With a registered dietician on staff, My Turn To Cook
will ensure that meals account for any special dietary needs. If the
recipient of my personal chef service is on chemotherapy or medication,
we'll design meals to accommodate any specific dietary limitations or
recommendations. And if new mothers are breastfeeding, I'll make sure
meals have increased calcium, iron and protein.
