The Roaming Chef - A Personal Chef Service

How It Works

Customized Menus

My goal is to make each meal the very best you have ever tasted! In order to accomplish this, I must know about your preferences and special dietary needs.  I have the ability to prepare gourmet meals to your specifications as well as preparing favorite recipes you may have.


When you hire me as your Personal Chef, I will come to your home and conduct an interview and complete a detailed questionnaire. I also would like to tour your kitchen. Each menu lists entrées and some side dishes for a two week period and is presented to you for your approval prior to your scheduled cooking day. However, I am flexible to your schedule and can cook as often or as little as you like whether it’s weekly, bi-weekly, monthly.


Meal Preparation in Your Home

Once you have approved your menu, we will schedule a day to cook in your home. I'll arrive with all of the utensils I need to complete your meals. I cook the food in your home, then package and refrigerate or freeze each item, and leave thawing and heating instructions. By following these instructions your meals will taste like they were just prepared!


I will leave your kitchen clean and your home smelling wonderful. You simply heat the meals and enjoy the free time, the clean kitchen, and the fabulous food.

Variety of Healthy Menus

I have the ability to cook not only to your tastes, but also according to your dietary requirements. So, if you need a low fat meal and you don’t eat red meat, don’t worry. You may want to try the turkey and black bean chili, or maybe you would prefer the lime and cilantro marinated shrimp. If neither of these entrées appeals to you, there are many more you can try. In fact, over 300 entrées are available, which means you won’t see the same meal twice in a 6 month period.


Complete Grocery Shopping

On your scheduled cooking day, I will shop for the groceries needed for the meals on your menu. I will purchase all of the items needed and the cost of these groceries are incorporated into the charge for the service.

Freshest Vegetables

On your scheduled cooking day, I will select the freshest vegetables available for your meals. If at all possible, I will use produce that was harvested that day.


Freshest Fish

I will select the freshest fish available for your meals. If fish is available that was flown in on your cooking day, I will select that fish, even if we drive to three markets to get the very best!

Top Quality Meats

The meats I select are of the finest quality available. The cuts are the most tender, and all are purchased the day I cook for you. No frozen meat here! I offer beef, lamb, pork, turkey, and chicken entrées.


Freshest Herbs & Seasonings

The herbs used in your meals are fresh and harvested that day if possible. If the herb is not in season, I will purchase dried herbs and crush them when I use them. I grind our seasonings fresh each day and only as much as I need. These practices prevent the flavorful oils from evaporating while the herbs and spices sit on a shelf waiting for use.
