|Hiring a Personal Chef
|If you are a busy professional with no time
to cook, and you are tired of dining out
and endless take out meals, it may be wise
to hire a personal chef. A personal chef
can be a lot less than you imagine, and these
trained individuals can make sure that the
food you eat is prepared to your own standards.
A personal chef may have a list of foods
that he or she will cook for you, much like
a caterer. If that is to your liking, you
may want to looking into a traditional meal delivery service. But if you are looking for a personalized
menu, prepared just for you, and perhaps
prepared in your home, then a personal chef
is a more appropiate choice.
There are a number of different
that you can make with your personal
for food preparation, including
- Your chef delivers a set number of meals
in the quantity you order at a regular interval.
This can be daily, every few days, or weekly.
The food will need to be refrigerated or
frozen until you want to eat it. This is
usually the most economical arrangement,
but it does mean that you will have to heat
the food and do any dishes, so it does take
some time on your part.
- The more expensive method is to have the
chef come to your home to prepare
meals. The chef will do the
for you and also usually take
care of serving
the meals and cleaning up the
chefs may insist on specific
that they can work a set number
per week. As a result, this
not be the best choice for
busy people with
- An option in between is for the chef to come
by periodically and prepare a number of meals
at once in your kitchen.
The end result can be a "home cooked
meal" prepared without the muss and
fuss, which makes hiring a personal chef
a good alternative for those who need to
adhere to a strict diet for either weight
or health care reasons and for the elderly.
