- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
For ongoing weekly meal clients, we charge $40/hr plus cost of groceries. For catering and parties, costs includes the price of food, labor, and any rentals. Price per head can be negotiated, but we are committed to paying event staff a fair wage of $40/hr for cooks and $25/hr for servers.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We normally begin with a brief phone call to get the basics. This can then be followed by a free in-person consultation to cover specifics for the upcoming event or needs for ongoing meals. We create a custom menu for your approval, as well as a detailed quote breaking down all costs. On the day of the event or scheduled cook date we do all of the shopping, come to your home or event space, cook (or deliver) delicious food, leaving the kitchen cleaner (and with more delicious smells) than when we arrived.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I've been cooking professionally for close to a decade. I have an Associate Degree in Culinary Arts from The Restaurant School here in Philadelphia. I am also Serve Safe certified at the Manager Level, which is the industry standard for health and food safety.
