Not enough time to cook every night? Personal chefs are in demand due to the convenience, health, and economic benefits that they offer. Though many think that having a personal chef is only for the wealthy, most people are often surprised to learn that utilizing a personal chef is often more economical (and far healthier) than eating out, and in some cases more economical than even your own meal preparation (since there is often less waste). They are also often surprised to learn of the various options offered by personal chefs. Some standard options include:
Pre-made, delivered meals ready for heating OR
In-home, full-time meal preparation
A selection of various cuisines
A range of meal categories, varying in price to meet various budgets
Preparation of custom meal requests
Accommodation of specific diets (e.g., vegetarian, vegan, kosher, low-fat, etc.)
