Give your family delicious, home-cooked meals.
Give yourself more time for everything else.
That's Fridgefull Thinking.
Meet your personal chef, Elizabeth Conlin
From an early age, I could typically be found in one of two places: the kitchen with my mom or the study by myself, reading encyclopedias for fun. A nerdy food-lover at heart, I still read cookbooks and foodie magazines like novels and love keeping up with the latest scientific research on health and nutrition. I always dreamed of a career involving food, but never felt called to the restaurant industry. After receiving training by the APPCA, I realized cooking for others could be something I do full time. Helping people feed their families healthy, delicious food is a dream come true.
What is a personal chef?
A personal chef cooks for muliple clients in the comfort and safety of their own homes. The meal planning, grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning is all included in a personal chef service. You are left with a fridge full of healthy, delicious meals in oven-safe or disposable containers along with heating instructions. Utilizing a personal chef can be an economical way to save time, eat healthier, and spend more time with your family. A personal chef can also cook single meals for in-home gourmet dates, small dinner parties, or private cooking classes.
Our initial consultation is my chance to learn more about you and your family - foods you and your family love/hate, any dietary restrictions or food allergies, and other key details that help me create meals your entire family will love. We will also discuss what level of package works best for your family , how often you'll want me to cook for you, and whether you'd like any add-ons (see Menu) or frozen meals. Lastly, I will go over any questions you may have (like these) and discuss pricing.
Planning Your Menu
After our initial consultation, I will create a menu based on your preferences and send it to you for approval. I can also recreate family favorites or cook something you find in a cookbook or on a website. I always try to accommodate specific requests and can even help make some "cheat day" meals a little healthier!
The Cook Date
I will shop for all the groceries the day of your service, choosing the freshest produce and highest quality ingredients available within our budget. I'll come to your home with my equipment, prepare the meals, package and label them, leave them neatly in your fridge or freezer, and do the all the cleanup. The only thing left is instructions for heating and the delicious aroma of home-cooked food!
