Beth has been amazing to work with! We started with one meal plan and then I decided to change to a stricter diet plan and she was beyond flexible with the changes. Her food is amazing and I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a personal chef.Mar 5, 2018Verified
Personal Chef (Ongoing)
Beth has been very easy to work with, and we love her food. She is extremely flexible, and is willing to either cook at her own home and deliver, or cook in your home. She will either provide you with a menu, or let you send her recipes! And the food is delicious and healthy. We're glad we found her and decided to give a personal chef a try! It's really helped the weeknight dinner rush and made evenings more enjoyable with the family since we can focus on being together after a long day, rather than worrying about what's for dinner!Sep 16, 2016Verified

Beth has been great to work with! Very flexible with menu, my choices, and days that work for cooking. Her meals/food is FAB! BEST part? I have so lost weight eating her food. Even the yummy pixie balls aren't added inches to my waste line ;) Definitely recommend to anyone to busy to cook meals daily and/or is looking for better/healthy meals to serve the family or themselves.Jan 20, 2017Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I take care of it all, from meal prep and food shopping to cooking, storage and clean-up. By bringing my passion for creating healthy and great tasting food right into your kitchen, you will have more time to pursue the things that you love! All of my dishes are gluten-free and I use organic, non-GMO, whole-food ingredients sourced from local farms whenever possible. In addition to the paleo, vegetarian and vegan items already on the menu I can also adapt others to suit your needs. Lower salt, fat, carbohydrate or glycemic-index meals are all possible. The first step is calling me for a free, personal consultation so that I can learn more about your tastes, preferences and lifestyle. I will then come to your home to do a comprehensive inventory of your kitchen and a survey of your family’s dietary needs, allergies, etc. Then you select from one of the service plans below, we pick your cook day and let me do the rest!. The menu changes monthly, offering a wide variety of main dishes that I will customize for your unique tastes and dietary needs. All meals are prepared from scratch in your kitchen, sourced from local farms using fresh, natural and organic ingredients whenever possible. Finished dishes are packaged by serving size in your fridge and are freezer-friendly, with cooking/re-heating instructions included!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I was first introduced to the world of personal chefs when I worked as a private chef for a number of families while I was in college and through my mid-20’s. In addition to a background in cooking, nutrition and celiac disease, I have spent the last 20 years working with nonprofit education and youth organizations as a manager, strategy consultant and most recently leading marketing and communications. I hold a Masters of Education degree in Narrative Family Systems Therapy and have been working to improve the lives of children and families for almost 30 years.
