Q: How does a personal chef service work?
After you contact Compass Personal Chef Services, our professionally trained Chef will set up your in-home consultation. The Chef will discuss the food likes and dislikes of everyone in your home including any allergies. All the meals prepared will be made to your exact specifications and liking. A customized menu will also be planned and a date will be set for your first cook date.
When your cook date arrives, our Chef will shop for the freshest and highest quality ingredients available. Next the chef will arrive at your home, carrying groceries and any necessary equipments. Depending on your menu, cooking and clean up will take between 4 and 6 hours. The Chef will package and label all meals and place them in the refrigerator or freezer (you will decide this during your consultation). A menu listing all items and heating instructions will be left on your refrigerator door, and your kitchen will be cleaned and sanitized.

Q: Can it save me money?
Yes, how many times have you pulled something from the freezer or made a trip to the store and never used the items or forgot to get another item from the store and had to go back to get it? How much did that cost? The time you invested… the money it cost in gas… the loss of and wasted food, not to mention the high price of gas these days.
