Frequently Asked Questions
What equipment do I provide?
I bring all my own equipment. All I need is your stove, counter space, sink, and room in your fridge and/or freezer, and/or the dishes to serve each course.
How long does it take for the meal preparation?
As all the preparation and cooking is done in your home, it takes me approximately 3 hours per meal serving 4 people (not including groceries). A preferred time is established to ensure I have cleaned up and I am gone by the time you get home.
Do you need a key to my house?
We can discuss these details when we meet. If you plan to be home, there’s no need for a key.
Who does all the shopping?
I do all the shopping. I look for the freshest ingredients, and will within reason and budge tryt to accommodate any sourcing preferences you might have.
For the Meal Plans, how are the meals packaged?
By choice I prefer to use the storage container that your household is most familiar with or is using at the current time. However, if you wish to change or have me provide different storage by default I use Glad storage containers or Pyrex glassware. This is then added to your bill on our first session.
How big are the meals?
The portion sizes are generous, typically the protein (fish, chicken, etc.) will weight be between 6 and 8 ounces (180 to 240 grams). Some clients may find a single dinner is sufficient for two people. For dinner parties we can decide on portion sizes.
How should I reheat the meals you have prepared for me?
I provide step by step instructions with every meal. Most meals can either be reheated in the oven, or in the microwave. I will give you typed up instructions for both methods.
How and when do I pay you?
I take payment in cash or by cheque, on or before the day I cook for you.
