Additional Shopping Additional grocery items can be picked up at no extra cost when the cook date ingredients are purchased.
Referrals Refer a friend who signs up for a minimum of three cook dates and receive 10% off your next service.
Gift Certificates A gift of home-cooked meals is always appreciated, and would be perfect for families celebrating a housewarming, wedding or new baby, as well as a thoughtful way to help someone through stressful times.
Entrees are packaged in single, double, or family servings in either reusable glass containers or disposable containers. There is a one-time $100 refundable container fee on your first order for reusable glass containers used by Comfort Food. Disposable containers are replaced as needed and will appear on your grocery invoice.
There is a non-refundable grocery deposit and chef's fee due in advance of the cook date. I will leave a grocery receipt with your change or an invoice if the cost of groceries is more than the deposit amount. If you like, you may leave a check for the upcoming cooking date on the day I am cooking.
Your Food Dollar
How do you spend your food dollar? How "free" is your free time? Ask yourself a few questions:
What’s my cost each week for groceries?
How often do I eat out? Take home? Order in?
How much food goes uneaten?
How many hours do I spend shopping? Schlepping? Preparing? Cooking? Cleaning up?
How much time do I spend driving to restaurants? Waiting for a table? Waiting for service? Returning home?
When you add up the cost — and the value of your time — you may be surprised to find having (or sharing) a personal chef is quite affordable.
