Stephanie is amazing. She helped my daughter who has a number of food allergies by cooking delicious and healthy meals for her. She is the real deal and I would strongly recommend herAug 28, 2020VerifiedLet's Eat Home Personal Chef Service's reply

Stephanie is an excellent chef (and a very kind human)! She has provided our family with meals since our child was first born and has continued to cook for us for 3 years. As vegetarians, she happily adapted recipes for us. And while we sampled just about everything, we came to love about 10 of her meals and now always request those. Fresh, homemade, and flavorful food. We feel nourished and loved eating her cuisine. Everything comes labeled with instructions. So easy. So delicious. We highly recommend her!Aug 27, 2020Let's Eat Home Personal Chef Service's reply
You're the best, Natalie. Thank you. Such a pleasure cooking for you and your family. Stay safe and stay well!

Stephanie is great and her food is amazing. She made food for me for well over a month when I was overwhelmed at work. Even though I've taken a break since I'm traveling so much, I will eventually work with her again.Jan 25, 2015Verified

When my daughter-in-law was diagnosed with preeclampsia, I contacted Stephanie to see if she could provide meals for them while my daughter-in-law stayed off of her feet. Stephanie responded quickly to say that she'd be able to help. I found her pricing to be very reasonable. I was not able to sample any of the meals, as I live in another city, but my son and daughter-in-law found the meals delivered to their door to be delicious. In addition to the high quality of the food, and the options presented to them for meals, Stephanie was VERY easy to work with. My daughter-in-law's condition worsened, and there was quite a bit of uncertainty as to whether they would be in the hospital when there food was to be delivered. Stephanie responded promptly to all our texts and emails. She rearranged the meal schedule to accommodate my son and daughter-in-law. I would engage Stephanie again, and I recommend her enthusiastically. I just wish she lived in my city, and I could enjoy her meals.Oct 5, 2020

We love Stephanie! The food is great, and she's able to modify everything to accomodate a bunch of tricky dietary restrictions, which helps enormously. Most importantly she clearly cares and that comes across and is very much appreciated. This was a great decision for our family, we would highly recommend it!Aug 30, 2020Let's Eat Home Personal Chef Service's reply
Thanks so much, Dave! Truly a pleasure cooking for you, Jane, and the boys.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I studied at the French Culinary institute in NYC - and trained under the wonderful guidance of my grandmother!!
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I began cooking in my grandmother's kitchen at age 11 in NYC. It was pure joy. Cooking, singing, and dancing with family. What good be better. As the years progressed, I tried more and more recipes from my mother's cookbooks..some were successes..some massive failures. But, it all served a purpose in making me the cook I am today. Like in the Julia Child movie, "Julie & Julia", I would try different recipes, making one dish after another, till I could master all types of cuisine. After college, I moved back to NYC and worked front of the house in many restaurants while pursuing a music career. Music paid the soul, but not the rent. I returned to cooking as a Private Chef for 5 years for a family in Greenwich Village. It was my dream job. When I moved to Chicago in 1999, I started my own company, designed my website, and started on my path as a Personal Chef with Let's Eat Home! PCS. I'm very proud of what I've built, the cook I've become, and the service I provide.
- What types of customers have you worked with?A Personal Chef Service dedicated to serving Chicago and all surrounding Suburbs. I provide meal service for busy people: families, couples, the elderly, post-natal, etc. I offer Classic Fresh Service and Recession Gourmet Service. CFS is designed for those clients who wish to have freshly prepared meals on a weekly basis - nothing is frozen. You may choose your own dishes from our menu pages (and change ingredients should they not appeal to you) or request dishes you would like, but do not see listed here. Alternatively, once you've completed your personalized Food Questionnaire, we would also be happy to design a menu for you based on your likes, dislikes and unique palate. Because we prepare everything from scratch, we generally shop for 1-2 hours in the early morning, then prep and cook for approximately for 6-8 hours. For Classic Fresh Service, we deliver once per week and prepare 3 to 5 different entrees with 3 different side dishes (enough for the whole week). All dishes are packaged for your refrigerator for warming in the oven and/or microwave. For those wishing to lose a few pounds or are just desirous of more balanced and healthy fare, we will prepare recipes from The South Beach Diet, Cooking Light, as well as dishes from Canyon Ranch Spa. For The Recession Gourmet Service, we will prepare 3 entrees/main dishes, 1 side dish, plus a loaf of Crusty (Parmesan) Garlic Bread and a weekly sweet surprise, for an all-inclusive price. Meals will serve 2-5 people for up to 15 dinners. The price includes the chef's fee, pantry fee (all staples from Let's Eat Home's kitchen), groceries and delivery (if more than 15 miles away, there will be an additional, but nominal delivery fee). Though we do subscribe to a heart-healthy approach to cooking, we do not sacrifice flavor. We use heart-healthy oils and, if the dish calls for butter, we use it very sparingly. Our dishes reflect the freshest ingredients cooked simply and beautifully with lighter sauces that enhance rather than conceal.
