Personal Chef

What is the difference between a Personal Chef and a Private Chef?

A Private Chef is employed by one individual or family full time and is often “live in” and prepares three meals a day.

A Personal Chef serves several clients, usually one per day, and provides multiple meals that are custom designed for the clients’ particular requests and dietary requirements. These meals are packaged and stored so the client may enjoy them at their leisure in the future. Enjoy Chef Elyse’s delightful creations straight from your own kitchen or pre-prepared in our commercial kitchen for larger functions.


All personal chef packages include:

  • Initial client consultation
  • Customized menu plan
  • Grocery shopping and pantry items
  • In home meal preparation
  • Food packaging (complete with labeling and reheating instructions)
  • And kitchen clean up
