Homemade Fresh is a chef service that provides meal planning and preparation services for families and businesses.  All services and meals are personalized for each client based on a client assessment to determine needs, budget, tastes, preferences and dietary requirements.  There are no standard menus.

Homemade Fresh is licensed, insured, and a ServSafe certified food handler.

 

Meal Package Services

For meal package service, the chef prepares meals in the homes of clients. Similar to a housekeeping service, clients don't need to be home when the chef is working.  Unlike a private chef who works daily for only one client, Homemade Fresh prepares meals for multiple clients on a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or as needed basis.  In just one cooking session, the chef can prepare one or two weeks worth of meals. Services include the following:

Initial Client Assessment

Each new client receives a free initial consultation to determine:

  • Food tastes and preferences for each family member
  • Dietary requirements
  • Meal plan preferences
  • Packaging and heating preferences
  • Service and scheduling details

Personalized Meal Planning

A personalized menu is designed for each client based on tastes, preferences and any dietary requirements.  A client approves each meal plan prior to the cook date.

Grocery Shopping

I shop for ingredients to prepare your meals, focusing on the freshest meats and produce to prepare delicious and nutritious meals. 

Meal Preparation with Mobile Kitchen Equipment

On your scheduled cooking day and time, I will arrive at your home with the groceries and equipment that I will need.  My mobile kitchen includes pots, pans, bowls, cutting boards, utensils, etc. needed to prepare meals in your home.  I use your major appliances, sink and countertops for preparation.  You do not have to be home during the cooking session. 

Packaging, Labeling and Instructions

Meals are packaged according to your serving size and reheating preferences.  Then they are labeled and placed in your refrigerator or freezer depending upon the meal plan you choose.  A variety of packaging and container options are available and will be discussed during the initial client assessment.  Each meal will include complete storage and reheating instructions. 

Clean Up

After the meals are prepared, packaged and stored, I will leave your kitchen as clean as it was when I arrived and remove the trash and recycling.  I use non-toxic cleaners that are healthy for you and the environment.  You'll come home to a clean kitchen and the wonderful aromas of homemade fresh meals.
