Q: How does having a personal chef work?
A: Place an order by 9am Thursday, and we deliver you order the following Sunday early evening to your home. Empties are picked up when the next meals are delivered.
Q: How are the meals delivered, fresh or frozen?
A: Both. Of the 5 meals each week, one is frozen, the other four are fresh. I recommend eating the fresh ones first (I even suggest an order on your invoice), and eating the frozen one at your leisure.
Q: How big are the meals?
A: Dinners come in 2 sizes, Large and Small. Large sized meals are portioned for a hungry adult man. For families with 2 adults, 2 Large meals are usually enough for an additional toddler. The Small is 75% the size of the Large.
Q: What kind of packaging is used?
A: I use sturdy plastic, re-usable containers. They are machine washable, microwaveable, and freezable. The empties and delivery bag are picked up with your next delivery. I like the environment, and am trying to contribute as little garbage as possible. So please return your containers and bags for re-use.
Q: What is the “No Brainer” plan?
A: A set of meals based on your personal preferences are delivered to you every week, without the need for you ordering. You need only let me know if you DON’T want a delivery.
Q: Can allergies be dealt with?
A: Absolutely. You let me know your preferences and allergies when you sign up, and I keep it on record and make sure you receive a specially prepared meal with them in mind. All ingredients are listed for each meal.
Q: What about special diets?
A: I am always happy to make substitutions for special diet needs. I am familiar with most diet plans, and can recommend alterations for most meals upon request. Many low-carb, wheat-free, dairy-free, and vegetarian options available.
Q: Where is the fish and chicken coming from?
A: All fish is wild, and all chicken is from Washington.
Q: What does delivery cost?
A: Delivery is $5 to the Eastside Kirkland/Redmond/Bellevue area, and $10 everywhere else.
