Weekly Dinner Service pricing starts at $370 for couples and $425 for a family of four per week, plus the cost of groceries. This cost includes a customized menu created each week for your family, and a chef who will prepare four dinners in your home each week, including grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, maintaining a stocked and organized kitchen, and leaving reheating instructions when needed. Weekly meals are always balanced entrées complete with protein, starch, and sides, and soup, salad, or appetizer prepared each time your chef visits. Fresh, homemade dessert is prepared on occassion or as a nice surprise!
With our premium service, you may add on the option for a serving night–your chef will stay through the dinner hour to plate and serve your meal at the table, and clear the table when you are finished. It’s like the restaurant came to you!
The cost of the food is not included in the service cost because each family’s food preferences vary. Shopping is done at your local Publix, Kroger, Sprouts or Whole Foods.
All of our services are completely customizable to fit each family’s needs. Contact us to discuss which service schedule would be best for your family.
